SEAFAIR is a maritime festival. Since its beginning in 1950, a strong relationship has existed between the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard and SEAFAIR. Every summer, a parade of ships and thousands of sailors are welcomed to join in the celebration. On
August 2, more than 5,000 sailors will arrive on Seattle抯 waterfront aboard a dozen vessels continuing this rich tradition.
The public is invited to take part in this annual event. Free public tours of the ships will take place Thursday, August 3, through Sunday, August 6, between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (Air Craft Carrier Friday through Sunday). Find yourself on the deck
of an aircraft carrier, look to the Sound from the bow of a destroyer, or imagine yourself on a rescue mission aboard a coast guard cutter. You can even tour a ship from the Navy to the north as two Canadian vessels partake in this awesome display.
One of the unique features of the fleet arrival in Seattle is the always popular Host-A-Sailor program. This program links visiting sailors with hospitable locals who invite them to take part in a wide range of activities from going to a Mariner抯 game
or playing a round of golf to a relaxing dinner and a walk around Green Lake. For more information on the SEAFAIR Host-A-Sailor program, call (206) 728-0123, ext.7503 or email at [email protected]
The SEAFAIR Fleet Arrival and Tours, presented by the Port of Seattle brings an impressive sight to Puget Sound抯 Elliott Bay each summer. Whether you抮e inspired by the power of these magnificent vessels or warmed by the smiles on the faces of
inquisitive children, you will realize the significance of this annual SEAFAIR tradition.
