Ship Creek Viewing Platform
Every day, spring to fall, more than 24 million gallons of rushing water comes through Ship Creek. It is a pristine creek in which salmon spawn. The viewing platform offers visitors an opportunity to watch salmon run while fishermen attempt to hook them. Remember, to fish in this creek, as anywhere else, you must have the appropriate fishing license. For now, despite regular discussions about developing it with displays and underwater creek bed viewing, the creek remains untouched except for the wooden viewing platform.
If you get a chance this offers a great view of the inlet. Stay as long as you like, watch the barges, the water, the birds, feel the breeze, smell the sea.
A hundred yards down the road you can fish for king salmon. Or talk to the locals who are loading or off loading their boats, you might get an offer of a boat ride.
Beautiful and calming.
