For over sixty years, Seafair has been paying tribute to the men and women of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, welcoming them to the Seattle waterfront for Seafair Fleet Week. 

This year’s fleet includes four U.S Navy and three Canadian vessels.  Over 5,000 sailors will disembark the ships to take in the high-speed action this weekend on Lake Washington.

The public is invited to watch the Parade of Ships through Elliot Bay on Wednesday from 1:30-2pm.  The public is also welcome to tour the ships Thursday through Sunday at 9:30am – 3:30pm and Sunday from 12pm – 3:30pm at the following piers:

Terminal 25 – USS Boxer and Canadian Ships
Terminal 46 – USS Port Royal
Terminal 66 – USS Kidd and USS Chief

Free parking is available at Terminal 25. Visitors will be required to present government issued photo ID and pass through a security screening checkpoint.
