The romance of a Seattle ferry ride is bound to the poetry of opposites—the city’s beauty retreating in the distance as the boat escapes westward into the horizon-wide embrace of the Olympic Mountains. There are few more convenient and visceral ways to acquaint yourself with the essence of Puget Sound, a wilderness often overlooked by humans. Every day, in view of office towers and freeways, these waters host rituals as foreign to us as ordering a latté would be to a glaucous-winged gull, a Dall’s porpoise, or a moon jellyfish. If your timing is right, you can encounter any or all of these creatures on this tour to Bainbridge Island, a thirty-five-minute, one-way trip over Elliott Bay, across a major shipping channel, and into Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge.
