Tour Pick Up and Important Information
Your pickup location is at the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal - 270 Olympic Dr SE, Bainbridge Island WA, 98110
Please look for a large black bus with the words Tour Bainbridge on the side at your pick up location. We do not pick up in Seattle. You must take the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. It takes approximately 35 min to get to Bainbridge Island by ferry. The ferry waits for no one so please be sure to arrive at least 15 min prior to the scheduled ferry departure from Seattle. During the summer the ferries are often running late so we recommend taking the ferry before your scheduled tour departure. For example if your tour starts at 10:30am you will want to be on the 8:40am ferry to arrive to the island in time for your tour.
*Please note - The ferry schedule is subject to changes so please look up the ferry schedule before heading to the ferry. If you decide to take the later ferry and the ferry arrives to Bainbridge Island late. We may need to cut your tour time of 3.5hrs short due to time constrains.

- Wildlife watching in their natural habitat
Pacific Northwest weather can be temperamental, so it's a good idea to bring some warm clothes with you (essential in the winter months). Bainbridge Island is usually warmer than the surrounding areas but from our experience, you will be much more comfortable if you’re not battling the elements! Layers are a good way to adapt to the often changing weather conditions. Comfortable shoes are a good idea too, as we do some light walking on all of our tours. Washington is famous for its rain, but it typically rains much less than you probably imagine! It would still be a good idea to pack an umbrella and/or waterproofs with you, just in case.
