Enjoy a spectacular view of the 4th of July fireworks, drinks and dessert from the deck of the historic tugboat Arthur Foss! Includes dessert and non-alcoholic beverages. Drinks available for purchase. Event supports Northwest Seaport.
WHERE IS THE LIGHTSHIP SWIFTSURE?
Northwest Seaport is in the midst of a major project to put an entirely new and historically accurate upper deck on its National Historic Landmark vessel, Lightship No. 83 Swiftsure to ensure its continued preservation. When visiting Historic Ships Wharf, we think you'll notice something...missing.

It's First Thursday again!
Visit tug Arthur Foss at Lake Union Park and Historic Ships Wharf to view ongoing work. Under the cover where restoration happens.

Brian Johnson of Ocean Bay Marine continues restoration work on Arthur Foss. View the progress Thursday and during Open Museum Ship weekend hours. Brian and crew are keeping the public informed by dedicating time to answering your questions. Don't be surprised to see a tool become active in your hand.
June 14, 8-10pm.
June Chantey Sing at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Chantey Sing with the Whateverly Brothers. This madcap band features none other than Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister, and Matthew Moeller. The Bros are well-versed in chanteys but also change up original and other maritime songs to fun-pitched level. Join the Sing!
Saxon Bisbee, a Maritime Studies graduate of East Carolina University, is Northwest Seaport's most recent professional-in-residence working and living aboard the floating fleet.
