Depart amid floating homes and all manner of watercraft ranging from canoes, sailboats, classic wooden boats, motor boats, to mega yachts. Enjoy a fully narrated tour of Seattle’s iconic sights such as Gasworks Park, the Space Needle, our Historic Ballard Fishing Community, UW Husky Stadium, and Majestic Mt Rainier. Sip a glass of fine Washington wine (or high quality H2o) while gliding under famous old draw bridges and past seaplanes taking off and landing. Mingle with locals enjoying the lake on paddleboards and kayaks while the sun sets.
What You Can Expect
Your 3 hour Sunset Cruise begins by heading to the south side of Lake Union where major companies are reshaping our city. We’ll leave the hustle and bustle behind as we set out on our leisurely cruise in the comfort of our beautiful custom and classic wooden yacht, the Rainbird. Take in the incredible views of the City as we travel east to Portage Bay and gaze at the magnificent Northwest light reflecting off beautiful St. Mark’s Cathedral, travel. While we travel through the Montlake Cut to Lake Washington, enjoy views of Husky Football Stadium, UW Campus, and snowcapped Cascade Mountains in the distance.
Upon our return to Lake Union we’ll travel with sailboats and large ships through two 100+ year-old drawbridges—the Montlake and University Bridges. We’ll get a close-up look at quintessential Seattle floating homes flanking the shores of the lake—including the one featured in the movie “Sleepless in Seattle,” and the oldest floating home, built over 115 years ago. After watching a breathtaking sunset we’ll return to Portage Bay Park as the lights of the City begin to twinkle.
