Despite the rain we had a very enjoyable cruise on Lakes Union and Washington. Most of the reservations were cancelled due to the weather so we had the boat almost to ourselves,except for 5 other passengers. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. They have a cash bar onboard so my husband and I enjoyed an Irish coffee.It took the chill off in a fun way.
Awesome tour. Narrative was very informative. We love being out on the water and totally enjoyed the trip.
What a wonderful cruise. Informative, beautiful sights, and great staff.
There were 8 of us and we enjoyed it immensely. The narration was top notch, learned many new things about Seattle. Would highly recommend for both visitors and residents of the Seattle area.
beautiful view of the lakes, floating homes, and some of the homes of the rich and famous. Enjoyed the narration. We learned a great deal. Some of the best money I've spent in Seattle
Enjoyed the tour and happy we went. The tour guide was a great speaker, very friendly and very knowledgeable. The information about the area was very interesting. The entire crew was very friendly. Recommend taking this tour.
Great but we had a family on board that was very, very LOUD !!!
We have taken this tour many times and it has always been very enjoyable. If you are not able to walk the hills of Seattle it is a great way to really see the beauty of the city. We enjoyed it with a guest from out of town and it allowed us to tour and still visit. You also have options to sit in the sun on deck or in the comfort of the salon in full shade. The commentator gave us a great historical view of the city and it's many interesting residents. I never get bored with this tour and have enjoyed it on both sunny and cloudy days. We have also taken the Argosy tour to Tillicum Village and the Locks tour, eenjoying them both. Seattle is a city of water and this is a great way to experience this aspect. Enjoy!
It was a very relaxing and educational tour my family enjoyed while visiting Seattle. It wasn't too short it wasn't too long. It was just right!
I would like to thank the crew for this wonderful experience!

Guide was exceptional. He was friendly and very informative. Trip was wonderful.
My Husband and I visited Seattle just after Labor Day and had the good fortune to have great weather our entire stay! The cruise was the first thing we did when we arrived in Seattle. We loved every bit of it! Nice boat and great crew members! A great way to start our stay because we learned so much about Seattle on this 2 hr. cruise! We were lucky enough to have a great view of Mt. Renier too!
My daughter had really wanted to go on the cruise and I went along with her but it was VERY enjoyable. The thing that made this tour stand out was the narration of the things that we were passing. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting in the area. The boat was very comfortable even on the windy day with the enclosed area.
A fantastic cruise from Lake Union to Lake Washington and return. It featured a different skyline panorama of Seattle to the Harbor cruise, a good view of Seattle?s fascinating floating homes as well as the other interesting features around Lake Union, a scenic passage through the ship canal between the lakes, interesting bridges and gorgeous homes on the eastern shore of Lake Washington at Medina. Seattle is very much a water based city and cruising is a great way to experience it. Highly Recommended.
I enjoyed seeing Seattle from the lake, and to see places along the shore I'd never seen before. My only suggestion is to limit the narration. While informative and interesting, it was a bit too loud, and there was too much of it. Made it difficult to have a conversation around our table. Perhaps succinct snippets of information/history, etc with more quiet spaces? Thanks for listening.
GREAT WAY TO START A TRIP TO GET A OVERVIEW OF THE AREA IN A RELAXED SETTING
Since this was my first visit here in Seattle, I was very impressed by the house boats - and their history - and the big estates of the rich and famous. Especially beautiful was the view back of the Space Needle and the magnificent Husky Stadium under construction. The weather was perfect and the boat was not crowded. A very enjoyable trip.
