si'áb Si'ahl (Chief Seattle) – This monumental chief of the Suquamish Tribe, left behind a legacy and story many have never heard before. See first hand accounts of his story and that of his people, who inhabited Bainbridge Island and the surrounding Kitsap Peninsula, long before Europeans sailed ashore.
We'll visit Chief Seattle's gravesite, the world renowned Suquamish Museum, and return through the Agate Pass where you'll get a glimpse of what was once his home along the water.
Then we'll take you for a beautiful scenic route around Bainbridge Island, top to bottom, and back again. Be sure to bring your camera for this trip, as we'll make a few quick stops to behold the breathtaking views of the Puget Sound and surrounding areas.

Tour Pick up
Tour Pick up and drop off is at the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal. If you are staying near by please call for pickup availability.
Pacific North West weather can be temperamental, and therefore it is a good idea to bring some warm clothes with you (essential in the winter months). Bainbridge Island is usually warmer than the places we visit outside of Bainbridge Island, and 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 walking on all of our tours. Washington is famous for its rain, but it typically rains much less than you probably imagine! However, it would still be a good idea to bring an umbrella and/or waterproofs with you, just in case.
