This is a fun way to gather a group of family or friends to cruise around Lake Union and see things from the water. It would be a great way to show out of town guests all of our unique floating homes and float planes.

No. That is prohibited. The boats are not configured for that...meaning that it would be extremely difficult for the swimmer to get back in the boat from the water.
