Gig Harbor

Getting Here and Around

From Seattle, the fastest way (if there's no traffic) to Gig Harbor is to take I–5 south through Tacoma and take Exit 132 to Highway 16 toward Bremerton. A slightly longer approach—in minutes, not miles—is to take the ferry from the West Seattle terminal to the Southworth landing on the Kitsap Peninsula and take Highway 160 west and then Highway 16 south. Taking the ferry from Seattle to Bremerton also works—you'd take Highway 3 south to 16.
