America’s beautiful Pacific Northwest boasts adventure for everyone from beginners to the most experienced yacht enthusiasts. There are many breathtaking islands and inlets all along the shores of Puget Sound and, of course, Lake Washington is immensely popular with both power boaters and sailors alike.

Our Seattle yacht insurance specialists spend all their free moments enjoying time on the water and outdoors, soaking in views like those of awe-inspiring Mount Rainier. Here are some of their top recommendations for your summer yacht trips in and around Seattle:

Enjoy the Emerald City: If you want to explore the city of Seattle, you can do so easily from the Bell Harbor Marina, a recreational marina in the downtown area (but check availability! It’s very popular, especially near the Fourth of July). You can enjoy some offshore tourist time, perhaps visiting the Woodland Park Zoo, the Seattle Aquarium, CenturyLink Field where the Seahawks play and the 12th man roars, or the famous Pike Place Market. You could even drop by our Seattle office to say hello and review your Seattle yacht insurance coverage! Complete your local experience by grabbing some takeout Starbucks to carry back to the marina so you can sip and enjoy the view of the city and the Olympic Mountains from your yacht.

Scandinavian Ambience: Not too far from Seattle is a charming small town called Poulsbo that is perfect for exploring. The trip is an easy one through Liberty Bay, where the water is typically calm because it is so protected. As soon as you see the Norwegian-style buildings of Poulsbo, you’ll understand why locals call this place Little Norway on the Fjord. There are many eateries and restaurants here, and the downtown provides many eclectic and interesting stores for those who like to shop.

Island Getaway: No visit to Seattle is complete with a journey to the roche-harbor-1361882-1280x960San Juan Islands, with most heading to Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor. The shores of the islands are picturesque, dotted with pretty little towns, inviting harbors, and everywhere breath-taking green forests. Summer is a busy time with many special festivals and events held on the San Juan Islands.

Wherever your summer boating adventures take you, our marine insurance professionals are here to provide support. Contact our friendly staff at Global Marine Insurance for all your Seattle yacht insurance needs.
