The Seattle Times has picked up on the fact that the West Seattle Water Taxi (aka the Elliot Bay Water Taxi) is one of the best and cheapest travel/outdoors recreation activities in the city, by putting information about the taxi in the “Travel/Outdoors” section of the paper. The water taxi runs from Pier 55 to Seacrest Park in West Seattle, a couple hundred feet from Alki Beach. It’s $3 or free with a Metro Pass. It’s an awesome activity to do with out-of-town guests, and an event better one to send your out-of-town guests on when you are at work or just want them out of your hair for a day.
I’ve got a couple of out-of-town guest groups crashing with me this summer, and I am definitely sending them on a trip to West Seattle via the Taxi.
