I’m a big fan of webcams over looking Puget Sound for checking tide levels, to track incoming freighters to surf, ship spotting and to see how the Sound looks in different conditions.
Here’ s a few of my favorites:
Ballard Elks Sunset Cam – I helped install this one as our Elks Paddling Club was looking for a way to see Shilshole Bay for all of the above purposes. We even saw Poulsbo’s 4th of July fireworks show last year! (it goes black and white at night).
Port Townsend Web Cam – You can control the direction of this cam!
Race Rocks Cam – SW of Victoria BC – You can control it and there’s sound of the wildlife. Race rocks gets a ton of wind, usually blowing 50-60kts!
