Ever since ancient Vikings first broke bread upon the high seas, boats have been a superior dining environment surpassed only by recliners situated before televisions sitting on top of larger televisions. Partake of buoyant bread breaking with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get one ticket to the two-hour Happy Hour Cruise from Waterways Cruises (a $48.85 value). Guests must be 21 or older.
Set sail on a two-hour jaunt from Waterways Cruises to visually explore Seattle's marvelous lakeside views while feasting on tasty nautical nosh. Guests traverse the shoreline of Lake Washington on a comfortable vessel equipped with background music, attentive service, and the captain’s narration of notable sights, including the world's longest floating bridge and majestic Mount Rainier. The succulent flavors of the chef's taco bar emanate from a toothsome spread of edible envelopes packed with blackened saltwater tilapia, chipotle-roasted chicken, or sautéed fajita veggies alongside an ensemble cast of hot sauce and condiments. All meals can be complemented with handcrafted cocktails, beer, wine, or nonalcoholic drinks available for purchase during the cruise.
Your skiff departs from the Waterways Cruises' home port on Northlake Way at 4 p.m. on any of the 22 Fridays between May 13 and October 14. Recapture the old spirit of the high sea-lakes, and dine like your oceanic forefathers who enjoyed the finer things, such as eating on boats and cigars rolled with famous paintings.
