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.

Your experience includes:

  • Panoramic views of Lake Union and the surrounding parks and neighborhoods
  • Share the lake with rowing crews, sailboats, taxiing seaplanes, luxury yachts, and stand-up paddle boarders
  • Full-service bar available on board for the purchase of specialty cocktails, local wine and beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks
