About Port Townsend

Disembark and head to town, where you can snap photos Victorian architecture, explore art galleries or tour the historic lighthouse in Fort Worden Historical State Park.

Beyond Port Townsend lies Olympic National Park and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From whale watching tours to trail hikes in the nearby national park, there are plenty of outdoorsy excursions on offer.
