Overview
Enjoy the sights and sounds of Seattle from the water on this comfortable, 2-hour, cocktail cruise along Lake Union. Watch seaplane arrivals and departures and see landmark Seattle locations like the iconic Space Needle, Seattle Great Wheel, the Fremont Bridge, Gas Works Park, the University of Washington and much more — plus a plethora of floating homes, including the one from the popular movie ‘Sleepless in Seattle.’ Choose from a morning, midday, afternoon or evening cruise. The first round of drinks is included.
What to Expect
Your cocktail cruise begins at the south tip of Lake Union — aka the South Lake Union neighborhood — where Seattle’s major industries have thrived. Climb aboard the ship led by your Captain (who also serves as the resident bartender). See an impressive display of boats and floating homes, including the one from the movie ‘Sleepless in Seattle.’ Travel from Westlake to Portage Bay and the Montlake Cut, located at the easternmost section of the Lake Washington Ship Canal.

Enjoy a cocktail (the first round is included) and the scenic view of popular Seattle points of interest like the iconic Space Needle, Seattle Great Wheel, the Fremont Bridge, Gas Works Park, the University of Washington, St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral and much more. On a clear day, notice the Olympic Mountains with majestic Mount Rainier rising over 14,000 feet in the distance.
