West Seattle Water Taxi service begins Monday, April 5

April 2, 2010

The 2010 season will usher in a new vessel and improvements to the dock at Seacrest Park ā€“ including a wider, longer, non-slip gangway to meet accessibility guidelines, new concrete floats, and a change in docking orientation for safer and easier vessel docking.

The water taxi operates between Seacrest Park, 1660 Harbor Avenue SW, in West Seattle and Pier 50 on the downtown Seattle waterfront. The pier at Alaskan Way and Yesler Way is a new location for the Seattle boardings.

Join King County officials as they celebrate the start of the Water Taxi Season on Sunday, April 11 from noon to 2 p.m. at Seacrest Park. The family-fun event will include face painters, craft activities and refreshments. A short program at 12:30 p.m. features the Lafayette Elementary School jump rope team, the Popcorns, and the school choir. Rides on the water taxi will be free all day on April 11.
