Small-Group Bainbridge Island Half-Day Tour

activities / Small group tours

Tour description provided by Viator

Take a few hours to explore Bainbridge Island! Just a short ferry ride from Seattle, Bainbridge Island maintains a small-town Pacific Northwest feel, just a stone’s throw from the cosmopolitan Seattle. On this small-group tour, admire the island’s abundance of sea, mountain and Seattle skyline views, and see its historical landmarks. With a guide, circle the island on a luxury minibus, stopping at shops, beaches and monuments. Then take the ferry back to Seattle – easy!

Discover the best of Bainbridge Island on a small-group tour with no more than 12 people. You have the flexibility to make your own way to Bainbridge Island aboard the Seattle Ferry when you wish (own expense; it is recommended you catch the 1:10pm ferry from Seattle to make the 2pm tour start time, or go earlier to enjoy the island on your own before the tour). The scenic ferry lasts a swift 35 minutes, although you may wish it was longer so you can admire more of the wonderful views of Seattle and Puget Sound.

Your tour starts when your guide picks you up at the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal and takes you first to the quaint town of Winslow, known for its myriad of boutiques, restaurants, museums and wine-tasting rooms. You’ll have time at the end of the tour to explore more here.

Back on your luxury minibus, circle the island and stop at some of the local attractions. Stops include the Bay Hay and Feed store, a country general store and garden center and the new Japanese American Exclusion Memorial, which commemorates the first Japanese community forced into internment during WWII.

Along the way, enjoy the stunning views of the Olympic Mountains, Cascade Mountains, the Seattle skyline and Puget Sound. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to the ferry terminal. Make your own way back to Seattle by ferry when you’re ready!
