Yacht/Boating/Cruising Clubs

Joining a group of fellow boaters is a great way to learn from others with a similar passion; more about your boat and how to use it, getting involved in boating-related activities (ie racing if you’re a cruiser, youth lessons), and of course, the social aspect of potlucks, dances and meeting new friends.  There are several nearby clubs and organizations that are listed here:

Corinthian Yacht Club Sloop Tavern Yacht Club
Shilshole Bay Yacht Club Puget Sound Crusing Club
Seattle Yacht Club Seattle Singles Yacht Club
Olympic Yacht Club

4th of July fireworks by boat

The 4th is a little over a week away and falls on a Tuesday.  This means people will have a long weekend to get away from the dock and cruise locally. Some popular displays to see by boat are:

(editor’s note:  at the time of this posting, there were very few details available on proposed shows due to the disruptions of the past 2 years, thus the info from previous years shows)

Poulsbo   this year’s show is cancelled, and future shows currently do not have a sponsor Poulsbo’s Third of July celebration canceled; focus now on Viking Fest (

The homes around Liberty Bay and the Casino will have their own shows.


Quartermaster Harbor-Vashon Island (private sponsored show over inner harbor – here is a 2016 video), there is no confirmation that this show is still on, and this is the first year that the King County Council has banned fireworks in King County, so there is a lot of unknown factors…

Lake Union-Seattle

Everett Waterfront

Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor
