Narrated sightseeing cruises from this location: LOCKS CRUISE (2-2.5-hr): Travel through the beating workboat heart of Seattle. Take in the spectacular views and experience the transition from salt to fresh water. This fully narrated tour provides you with knowledge, fun facts, and the chance to become the attraction to those on shore as your vessel raises up or lowers, due to the ever-changing tides of Puget Sound. Between Elliott Bay and Lake Union you’ll be surrounded by floating homes and houseboats, large fishing vessels, seaplanes, majestic city parks, and more. LAKE UNION CRUISE (1.5-hr): Explore Seattle’s urban aquatic playground! One-and-a-half hour narrated cruise through Lake Union, Portage Bay, the Montlake Cut, and past the University of Washington. You’ll learn about Lake Union’s transformation from a gritty industrial resource to a beloved public space where locals live, work and play.

This was a tour through the locks in Seattle (Lake Union to Puget Sound) and it was terrific. Ryan, the narrator, provided a lot of information while keeping it very interesting. The trip through the locks was fascinating. Highly recommend.

This Lake Union tour was a very informative and comfortable trip around the lake. The ship staff was so friendly and helpful. Our guide was outstanding. Only suggestion to improve would be the interior seating and tables. A don't miss for Seattle!

Far exceeded our expectations! I took my family on the Lake Union Cruise on a beautiful sunny afternoon--it was so much fun to be a tourist in my own town! I'm planning to do the locks tour next!
