SEATTLE --Tickets for Seattle City Light’s popular Skagit Tours go on sale May 1, 1998. This year marks the 70th season the tours have been offered. Visitors experience the same unique ride on the incline railway that earlier generations have enjoyed since 1928.
For a single admission price, visitors receive a fully-guided, four-hour tour that includes: an historic video presentation, an antique incline railway ride, a boat cruise and an all-you-can-eat, family-style lunch of oven-baked chicken or vegetarian spaghetti. Tickets are $25 with special prices for children and seniors.
An abbreviated 90-minute tour, which includes the incline railway ride and tour of Diablo Dam, is also available for $5 per person. No reservations are required.
