World of Water

Season 1 | Episode 2

Seattle is virtually surrounded by water. It connects the city together, and unites its locals and visitors alike. In this episode of “Culture Trippers” we explore the city’s aquatic playground through the eyes of a local and a visitor who have spent their lives on the water. From sailing to paddle boarding, the water is an excellent way to take in Seattle’s scenery.

VISITSEATTLE.tv is an entirely new content channel, full of short films and long-­form series celebrating the sights, sounds, and textures of Seattle.
