"Night-time" Seattle Skyline From Elliot Bay Marina, Private Viewing Deck
***New limit for 18 attendees: We have been able to extend the limit for (2) more. If you are on the wait list, automaticly the next two in order of sign up will receive notices.
Our viewing and shooting location is from Elliot Bay Marina's large private viewing deck out on the marina Jetty (rocks). From "G" dock, we have a water transport; a very stable, 12' inflatable which will transport up to 6 passengers at a time. Once departed from "G" dock, crossing 20' of calm protected waters within the jetty, we will easily offload onto a secure, stable floating dock which has a steel gang-way leading aprox. 20' up to a large secured viewing deck with rails. The private viewing deck overlooks the length of Seattle's City coastline, with views of the space needle, ferris wheel, industrial to west seattle and beyond.
What else you will/may see? This is the maritime gateway, ships will be in arriving and departing port, the ferry's will be crossing our views, boats in general. If your looking for that perfect seattle night skyline without boat traffic,.. TIMING (knowing the ferry routes) will be helpful, and we will have this schedule laid out as well.
**Our water transport is provided by a private vessel. With experienced boat handlers: Noel Nic'Fergusson (Licensed boat handler) , Roland White (years of zodiac experience), Dan Douglas (years upon the waters and sail boat savvy).
