Pseudomonas Final Dinner at Kiana Lodge
(included in the registration fee)


For a true Northwest experience, the Pseudomonas final dinner will begin with scenic cruise through Puget Sound followed by a delicious dinner at Kiana Lodge.  The Lodge is a private six-acre waterfront retreat located approximately one and a half hours from downtown Seattle by boat. Kiana was originally built in the 1930s as a lodge club house for those Seattle area residents seeking a summer escape. In 1944, the lodge was purchased by a private party and was given the name “Kiana" which means “Garden of the Gods” in the Suquamish Native American language.


You will enjoy a private cruise to Kiana Lodge aboard the Royal Argosy, with a DJ onboard to get the evening started. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by friendly staff and invited to explore the lush setting filled with tall firs, fragrant cedars and colorful flowers. You can stroll along the sandy beaches which are carpeted by white clam shells and delicate sand dollars. The fabulous gardens are meticulously cared for by a team of gardeners year round and certain herbs are picked from the garden for the nights’ meal.  A warming appetizer will be provided to enjoy while you explore the grounds. After the delicious meal, you will have the opportunity to roast marshmallows over a bonfire on the beach.The perfect ending to this memorable evening is the magnificent nighttime view of the glittering Seattle skyline from the water.
