Small group tour with personal service by Captain Dylan. Catered the tour to our interests and questions. Relaxing way to spend the evening. Boat was covered and protected us from the rain.

Views were great, boat gave off diesel fumes, not so nice. The owner gave most of his attention to 1 chap, mega conversations, basically ignoring other people. Not much input of surroundings, minimum effort. I would not recommend this cruise.

We like this tour it's more personal and there was only five of us passengers you ask question anytime. Dillon the captain is very knowledgeable.

Only had one day to experience Seattle and this was the perfect way to do it. Great boat and refreshing drinks. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Captain Dylan does an amazing job and seeing Seattle at night from the water is something that should not be missed. Eating at Duke's after makes for a perfect evening!

This was a great way to spend an afternoon, Dylan was a super captain, laid back and informative. He didn't get a lot of time to talk but when he did we enjoyed his stories. We would definitely do it again. He takes not more than 6 people on his current boat and drinks after the first one are 6. We liked seeing the area again without fighting crowds and the Swan Lake Restaurant after the ride was perfect for lunch.

How does one begin to thank another person for helping make more memories on a MUCH needed mini vacation? 2 words, CAPTAIN DYLAN, thats how!! Capt. was super informative, knowledgeable of the city, interesting stories of the history of Union / Washington Lake and one HELL of a good tow service! On our tour, this other boat and family were dead in the water. CAPTAIN DYLAN threw them a line and we towed 'em in. The family was SO NICE and appreciative! So very happy I found this on the list of TO DOs! Thank you Capt. DYLAN, you made our first trip to your great state extra special!!
