What an awesome ride! Captain Kelly is the perfect guy for the job. He is very knowledgeable about the area and just a great guy. His wife and him make a great team (along with their first mates Cedar and Sammy). If you get up to Seattle, look him up for a relaxing cruise with a great view of the city. Thank you Captain Kelly!

We booked this for a fun girlfriend cruise and Captain Kelley really delivered! Professional, funny and very knowledgeable about the Lake. You can sit upstairs with the captain or there’s a private area downstairs where we set up food and drinks. Heading home into the sunset was absolutely gorgeous. I would highly recommend this sunset cruise to anyone who just wants to have a good time in a beautiful space!

A great time for my friend and me! Professional, fun, and great boat. Captain Kelly was prompt, professional and runs a nice operation. Great if you know the city and same if you don’t! Give it a go.

I went while my parents were visiting and we had a great time. Captain Kelley is knowledgeable and has fun/random facts of various sights along the tour. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a tour of the waterways.

Phenomenal experience. Captain Kelly, true native, knows Seattle and its intriguing history and quirks. It was a wonderful evening on the water hearing stories of homes and venues that are water adjacent. Loved every minute. Everyone came away refreshed and with a knowledge of Seattle we would not have gotten any other way. A must do when you are in Seattle--even if you live there.

Absolutely fantastic! Captain Jerry and his crew were amazing. As nice as can be. Boat was big, clean, and well provisioned. Jerry knows the history and gossip about everything in and around Lakes Union and Washington. Our trip was fun and relaxing. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
What a great time! Captain Kelly is extremely knowledgeable about the area and great to visit with (along with his two first-mates Cedar and Sammy). My wife and I enjoyed the entire boat trip and look forward to coming back again soon.”
This was absolutely the most amazing experience I’ve ever had on a boat. Captain Kelly was very knowledgeable of the waterways, different types of boats, what they do on the water and the history of the sights we saw. The mimosas were delicous, the conversations were easy going and awesome. It felt like I’ve known Captain Kelly all my life. I look forward to doing another cruise with him again in the future.
My boyfriend surprised me with the mimosa cruise…I had no idea what to expect but I was so surprised when I climbed aboard. Captain Kelly was welcoming and made our cruise the best experience! It was such a delight to view the city from a boat! Definitely will be coming back for a dinner cruise! Thank you Captain Kelly for a wonderful conversation and experience!!
