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.

If you told me 2 years ago that I would be on a boat with Amy, I would say- you’re crazy. Wow what an amazing two hours. As soon as I boarded the vessel, I knew that future me was about to be jealous of past me. I highly recommend this excursion, Amy was the best captain we could have asked for. 10/10!!

This was my boyfriend and I’s favorite thing we did on our trip in Seattle last weekend! Mark was absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable. I highly recommend doing this. It’s also very close to the Space Needle, Museum of Pop Culture and the Fremont Troll.
