- $35 for one ticket to a Lakes Lunch Cruise ($59 value)
Advance reservation is required
Guests on the two-hour lunch cruises on Lake Union and Lake Washington start with a champagne toast upon boarding before enjoying a buffet of classic Northwest lunch favorites at a private table, all accompanied by the captain’s narration of the sights. A full-service bar offers cocktails, wine, beer, and nonalcoholic beverages for purchase.
Lush tree-lined shores, sprawling lakeside estates, the snowy peak of Mount Rainier, and the towering buildings of downtown Seattle unfold before guests on Waterways Cruises' dining cruises. Having grown from its founding as a small family operation Waterways Cruises and Events now operates with a fleet of four modern, elegantly appointed yachts, each of which features a full dining salon and observation decks for drinking in the scenery, and has served upwards of 50,000 guests a year.
Perhaps the most popular outings are the dining cruises that drift on a scenic route through Lake Washington, Lake Union, and the Ship Canal from early afternoon through the evening. During these cruises, the captain offers tidbits of local history while chefs prepare spreads of authentic Northwest cuisine. Guests may also enjoy hand-made cocktails from the full-service bar.
