Lake Union Cruise

Explore Seattle’s urban aquatic playground!

This tour received the 2017 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor and is ranked one of the top tours in Seattle.  Join us for a one-and-a-half hour narrated cruise through Lake Union, Portage Bay, the Montlake Cut, and past the University of Washington. You’ll learn about Lake Union’s transformation from a gritty industrial resource to a beloved public space where locals live, work and play.

Your experience includes:

  • One hour of live narration as you cruise around Lake Union and parts of Lake Washington.
  • Panoramic views of the University of Washington campus and Alaska Airlines Field at 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 taxing seaplanes.
  • Full-service bar available on board for the purchase of specialty cocktails, local wine and beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks.
