We're celebrating the Centennial of Naval Aviation this year! The mission of this celebration is to honor a century of mission-ready men and women and recognize unique aviation-related achievements through event driven celebrations.
Seafair is proud to welcome the men and women of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and Canadian Navy each year to Seattle's Elliott Bay waterfront.
The arrival of the ships and sailors for Seafair is a tradition rooted in the formative years of the festival over 60 years ago. Over 5,000 sailors will disembark a half-dozen U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and Canadian vessels for a short liberty pass and the opportunity to take part in the high-speed Seafair action on Lake Washington.
Ships will be docked at Port of Seattle facilities Terminal 25, Terminal 46N and Pier 66.
We will be welcoming U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6), guided-missile destroyers USS Sampson (DDG 102) and USS Chafee (DDG 90), three Royal Canadian Navy ships and one U.S. Coast Guard vessel.
