As a company teambuilding offsite, we reserved 3 boats and did their scavenger hunt. It was really a fun couple of hours. Great way to see Lake Union, learn about the environs and just enjoy a great afternoon on the water.

I booked this as a side tour with Seattle Qwik tours and didn't have any real expectations. We ended up spending a very pleasant couple of hours boating around the lake. We stopped at Ivars for some fish & chips, then found the houseboat used in the film Sleepless in Seattle. The boat was very easy to use and we... More

I've used the groupon that Electric Boat Company occasionally releases and it's really a great value! The boats are spacious and can easily fit 10 people. You can bring food and drink onto the boat, so it's a realy nice way to get out on the lake if you don't own your own boat. Also it does not require any... More

We were looking for something different to do as a family (my parents, siblings and our children). Thumbs Up: -- Easy to navigate. Even the kids got in on the act, with adult guidance of course. -- They allow you to bring food and drink. We came prepared with antipasti, selection of cheeses and juices that made for a simple...

I took my family out for a boat ride this summer. I found the Electric Boat Company to be an excellent choice. The atmosphere is relaxed. The boats are clean and well maintained. 2 hours was plenty of time to see the whole lake. The boats are big enough to be comfortable yet small enough to be managed by the... More

I came here as part of my work's group bonding experience. There were about 35 of us total, with four boats rented. It's really cool that you can bring your own food and drink, and take a leisurely ride on the lake. The electric boats themselves are incredibly slow, so don't expect a speed boat! We took part in the... More

The staff were helpful and polite. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time as these are very popular. The boats are slow and steady and are equipped with a party table and bench seating. They have a roof and the windows can be closed for cooler weather. Keep an eye peeled for landing seaplanes!

the waterway is shared by kayakers, paddle boarders, sailboats and an array of boats (powerboats - yachts). Plus, the waterway is also home to a float plane airport. yes, you'll see float planes take off and land around you. The scenery can't be beat. You'll enjoy a vast collection of house boats, including the infamous one from Sleepless in Seattle.... More

First of all, I want to say we did use a Groupon and had absolutely no difficulties reserving or using this company. I did reserve several weeks ahead. We spent a lovely two hours out with family in the sunshine on opening day of boating season. One of the nice features of these boats are the silent electric motors which... More
