LAKE UNION CRUISE DESCRIPTION

1 1/2-HOUR TOUR DEPARTURE POINT: AGC MARINA

 

Explore Seattle’s urban aquatic playground on this 1½-hour narrated cruise through Lake Union, Portage Bay, and the Montlake Cut. You’ll learn about the transformation of Lake Union from a gritty industrial resource to a beloved public space were locals live, work, and play.

Your experience includes:

  • A 1½-hour live-narrated cruise including Lake Union, the Montlake Cut, and Portage Bay.
  • Panoramic views of the University of Washington campus and Husky Stadium, Seattle’s floating home communities (including the ”Sleepless in Seattle” movie home), Gas Works Park, marinas, the Union Bay Natural Area, and more.
  • Share the lake with rowing crews, sailboats, and stand up paddle boarders as you cruise past working shipyards, pioneering biotech institutions, mega-yachts, and taxiing seaplanes.
  • Full-service bar available on board for the purchase of specialty cocktails, local wine and beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks.
