Beehive Tours

Get up close with a backyard beehive!

Experience a beehive up close through our small-group beehive tours in Shoreline, WA.

A short light-rail ride from Downtown Seattle (when light rail opens in Shoreline in 2024), the beehive tour is a great activity for those visiting Seattle or for locals looking to understand the world around them. Rainy Day Bees manages beehives in over 30 backyards and rooftops across Seattle and loves talking all about bees. Enter into our private backyard apiary and experience what it's like to take care of bees in this unique setting.

Learn about the different roles that honey bees play in a hive then put on a bee suit and join an experienced backyard beekeeper to walk through a hive inspection. You’ll even hold a frame of honeybees! A backyard honey tasting ends the 2-3 hour experience.

"My friends and I had a wonderful experience on our private tour! Peter was incredibly kind and knowledgeable. We learned much about bees, honey, and best practices for bee-friendly gardening and farming. The tour was safe and fascinating! Everyone loved the honey tasting afterwards. I highly recommend the tour and purchasing honey from Rainy Day Bees."
