We took the lovely 'sunset' tour, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. I loved the relaxing, leisurely cruise. The aspect of the cruise I most enjoyed was one that I had not anticipated. The cruise gave us a wonderful flavor of life and culture in Seattle! As we floateded by all the floating homes, houseboats and yachts (including the "Sleepless in Seattle" floating home") I realized the lifeblood of Seattle is still tied to the sea, as it has been from its beginning. I saw how young and energetic Seattle is today as we watched small pods of friends on the lake enjoying stand-up paddle boards. The tour starts in Lake Union and proceeds through 'the cut' to Lake Washington and then circles back to home base. As we made our way through 'the cut' we saw young energetic students from the University of Washington at work painting a new panel in support of their favorite rowing team. Others were simply enjoying the evening on the banks. Next we oogled the beautiful stately mansions of the Laurel Hurst neighborhood. Everywhere we saw people they gave us friendly waves. Finally, as we cruised homeward, the sun slipped down and the skyline lit up. It was beautiful and so pleasant. Our captain Amy was friendly and made us feel right at home.

Our tour guide, Maleine was awesome! The tour itself was the perfect amount of time, super informative, relaxed, and so cool! We loved watching the seaplanes take off and land. My fiance and I live here and we learned so much about our neighborhood. We went with some family who were visiting and this is the perfect tour for visitors AND locals. We will definitely be back. So much fun!

It was winter when we booked but it was a nice ride around Union lake. We booked the 6 pm cruise and it was perfect! We saw the sites of Seattle just as it was getting dark and then saw it light up.

I would highly recommend it the staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the history.

We had a rocky start for this cruise. About 15 minutes before we were supposed to depart, Dylan called us to tell us the boat was having problems. So, we were able to reschedule for the following evening on a different boat and didn't already have plans that night. Thankfully we had gorgeous weather both nights. Dylan and another driver accompanied us on the boat ride. The cruise felt like a social evening out. The lake is beautiful.

Hi Katie, Thanks again for your flexibility and understanding. I work hard to keep the boats safe and in ship shape, but occasionally things break. I am glad we were able to get you out on the water and that you enjoyed yourselves! Cheers, Dylan

I really enjoyed this two hours on the lake. The Captain was very well versed in the area and extremely entertaining. It was very relaxing to enjoy a drink while cruising around looking at the sites. Don't miss this one!!!

My husband and I were in Seattle for a few days, and decided to do this as our farewell to the city. We are so glad we did - the other folks who booked were unable to attend, so we got a private tour! We did the 6 p.m. tour, and saw a mostly cloudy, sprinkly rain turn into sunshine just as the sun was starting to set. Everything was just as described, and we were able to see the city from a fresh vantage point! Very relaxing and enjoyable. Highly recommend!

We all had a wonderful time on this cruise with Captain Dylan. We loved that is smaller and personal and Captain Dylan is wonderful. He has a lovely boat that he restored himself and I loved that we were cruising closer to the water, as opposed to when you go on the larger, crowded boats. He pointed out all of the sights to us and we lucked out on a beautiful sunny day. A stocked bar while cruising is a plus too. Highly recommend this when you visit Seattle.

My girlfriend and I had a great time on this cruise. It was just us, the captain and another customer on the boat for a couple of really fun, relaxing hours out on the water in Seattle. Learned a lot, got to see a lot of the city and had a great time. Would highly recommend.
