Owner description: This large, recreational lake is great for renting an electric boat, kayaking and admiring the Seattle skyline. The new South Lake Union Park is open and easily accessible from downtown by Streetcar.

Very busy area but full of attractions. Went on a duck tour had a load of fun. The tour guide was very entertaining

We stayed near U District and spent an entire day in NE Seattle. We biked to Gasworks Park and enjoyed sitting on the hill overlooking Lake Union towards the skyline. Once we saw the kayakers we wanted to do that also. On the North side of Lake Union, the only kayak rental place we saw was a short bike ride away east of Gasworks Park. It was a Mexican Restaurant/Kayak rental place. It took us an hour of moderate to intense paddling to get to the middle of Lake Union next to Gasworks Park where we were originally and back. We passed under a bridge, got to see the bridge raise up for a boat, and saw all the boat houses along the shore. Too bad I did not do my research and figure out which houseboat is the one from Sleepless in Seattle.

Fun way to see other parts of the city.

Typical boat cruise, Informative, enjoyable, saw a few things you normally do not see while cruising on a lake, seaplanes landing and taking-off, large amount of houseboats + other items of interest

So we cruised around union lake on the "ride the ducks" tour. It was nice. There is a small airport on the lake. We saw about a dozen planes take off and land right in front of us. We went by the sleepless in Seattle house and the "gas works"

Easily reached from downtown Seattle by street tram, this is a relaxing place with a lovely cafe with the view, historic ships lined side by side and a haven for watersports.
