Ports of Call | Seattle, WA Fisherman’s Terminal


This massive port is home to over 600 boats, supplies over 10,000 jobs, and contains the majority of the Pacific fishing fleet.  Its a world within its self, just nestled across from historic Ballard.  The port facilitates nearly every ever fishery from trawlers to trollers.  At any time of the year, you could easily wander down and find someone grinding, painting, or mending.  This is also a great hub for any hopeful greenhorns who want to make their way to Alaska.  The offices for most of the main processors such as Ocean Beauty and Trident are located close by and provide access to many of the factory processing jobs.  The added benefit of keeping your boat in fresh water over the winter is a huge draw, but it means you must traverse the Ballard Locks to get back to the sea.  Overall, the Fisherman‘s terminal is an icon of America‘s fishing fleet.  If your reading this blog, I’m pretty sure you have been there once or twice.  If not, it’s worth a stroll.
