Used this service for a business team meeting and it offered the perfect level of comfort and pleasure at the same time. Boat was easy to drive and we felt safe at all times.

If you plan to go on the weekend, please call and make a reservation 3-5 days in advance. It is $100/hour and the boat seats 10. My husband and I went by ourselves from 2-4 on a Sunday. You can bring your own food and drink. I brought a cooler with ice, wine, glasses, and cheese & crackers. I recommend... More

With 10 adults, a couple picnic lunches and a last bit of the summer sun, you can't find a much better way to spend an afternoon and show people a different side of the City. These boats offer a slow, steady 'easy to learn' way to float around the lake- wind or no wind. And while quiet, they can be... More

When a friend treated our group an outing on these boats, I had some serious doubts about size, seating comfort, access, reliability and . . . and . . . and, the weather, of course. The day came, unexpectedly sunny with a hint of Autumn in the air. Glorious. Was able to relax immediately as we approached the tiny harbor... More

We spent a few hours puttering around Lake Union with family and really enjoyed the unique perspective of Seattle from the water. The boat was the perfect size for 5 adults and 4 kids under five y.o., and offered enough room for us to spread out a picnic. The employees were very friendly, and we had a terrific afternoon.

This was a fabulous way to sit back and relax and enjoy the people you work with. We catered the sandwiches through Electric Boat Co. and they were delicious!. We toured Lake Union for 2 hours and just loved see all the activities on the lake as well as the wide variety house boats, yachts etc. Not a lot of... More

There were 6 adults and two little kids... little ones' life jackets provided... adult jackets onboard. Very organized welcome, essential to pre-reserve. Boat was more than ample pleasantly sea worthy.... Close up view of house boats and working waterfront .... would have to be pretty jaded not to love this..... we are from here and it was still amazing

We visited in April and decided to go out on the lake because it was unseasonably sunny and warm. The electric boat company was an efficient, well run and friendly operation. The boats are roomy, clean, nearly silent and very affordable. A great way to spend an afternoon with family or friends. I thought the boats would lack power because... More

Spent a lovely afternoon with a group of friends puttering about Lake Union. After 2-3 minutes of ribbing our "captain" (one of us) about not knowing the difference between forward and reverse (could it have been the mislabeled throttle), we spent the next two hours enjoying the views, the sun, the water, and the conversation. Pro tip: Bring a picnic... More
