Fast Ferry Excursions

Update 6/17: Thank you for your interest in booking a private charter with us. We are experiencing a significantly high volume of charter inquiries and, unfortunately, can no longer accept more requests. We will begin taking new charter inquiries the week of July 19. 

NEW! Fast Ferry Excursions

Cruise out to Blake Island on a private Fast Ferry – a quick 27 minutes from dock-to-dock. Bring your family, colleagues or small group for a day packed full of adventure and culture. Once you’re out on Blake Island, choose from either a 60-minute Coast Salish Cultural Presentation in the Tillicum Theater or a 120-minute Guided Nature Walk. Then, enjoy lunch from our Longhouse Café with stunning views of Seattle in the distance. Top your day off fireside while you roast s’mores* and scroll through the day’s pics (and decide which is the best to post).
