Of course the Port of Seattle is a misnomer. Beyond docking facilities and mooring is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac, which serves the entire area and as a gateway from Asia to the United States. People land here from elsewhere to take Alaska cruises and to enjoy the beauty of the area. While the airport is extremely valuable, our focus is more on water-based transportation facilities.
In addition, the 'port' manages the Shilshole Bay Marina, the Maritime Industrial Center, the Fishermen's Terminal on Salmon Bay, the Smith Cove grain elevator, and the cargo terminals on Elliott Bay, Harbor Island, and the Duwamish Waterway.
From downtown, you can access the ferries to be transported to the various islands of the area.
