Port of Everett, Historic Everett Partner on New "Flashback Friday" Historic Everett Waterfront Harbor Tours

Date: Jul 1, 2022

Everett, WASH. – The Port of Everett is excited to partner up with Historic Everett to add a new community tour this summer that will take you back in time.

Our new “Flashback Friday” Historic Everett Waterfront Harbor Tours are now booking spots for five Friday evenings this summer, including July 8 and 22, Aug. 5 and 19, and Sept. 2.

The tour, aboard the 60-passenger Jetty Island Ferry, will be guided by local Everett historians and will cover information dating back to Everett’s former mill town days, when lumber and shingle mills lined the bay, and commercial fishing, boat building and maritime industries emerged at the Everett waterfront. The ferry will board at 6:45 p.m. for a one-hour tour from 7-8 p.m.

Interested in current-day activities at the waterfront? Consider booking a spot on one of five returning Port of Everett Working Waterfront Harbor Tours available on July 21 and 28, and Aug. 4, 11 and 18, aboard the foot ferry.

This guided tour explores the diverse roles the Port of Everett plays on the waterfront, from the operation of its international seaport, public marina facilities, real estate development, environmental stewardship, public access and more. Riders will have the opportunity to see cargo operations in action and hear about all the new mixed-use developments coming to the destination waterfront. The ferry will board at 5:45 p.m. for a one-hour tour from 6-7 p.m.

Reservations are required for each harbor tour. Cost is $3 per person; children 2 and under can ride for free but still need a reservation.
