The sight of 700 vessels heading into port after a long day on the water grants spectators a deep appreciation for a fisherman's work, dedication and patience. Long an important industry in the area, fishing in Seattle accounts for over 50 percent of the seafood caught in the United States. When the ships come in, the piers teem with curious onlookers, eager to see what crabbers and fishermen have hauled in from the sea. (Fans of the Discovery reality TV series "Deadliest Catch" will be especially excited to get an inside glimpse of this fascinating industry and its colorful characters.)
Best for Sightseeing Because: Head to Fishermen's Terminal to see 700 vessels and the hard-working fishermen who comprise one of Seattle's most important industries.
