Sunday Historical Cruise

Due to COVID-19 and the ever-changing tourism landscape, we have made the decision to postpone the Sunday Historical Cruise through the end of 2021 to refresh and revamp the experience. 

We look forward to welcoming you back in the spring of 2021 with our Harbor Cruise, Locks Cruise and Blake Island Excursions! Full schedule here.


Over 200 Years of History on a Sunday Afternoon!

Our journey begins in the South Lake Union neighborhood, then navigates bays and canals to discover how the city evolved from a backwater logging town into an international hub of innovation and creativity.

Around every bend our professional tour guides will reveal historical secrets (like the tricks of the prohibition-era rum runners), and illustrate how the 1936 U.S. men’s Olympic rowing team scored one of the most improbable gold medals in U.S. history. Bring the family to enjoy themselves on this informative 1.5 hr sailing.
