Beautiful ride across the waters to Whibley Island. Inexpensive too. Great way to see the sights. It is a 30 minute ride and the ferries run often.

My husband and I went on the Sunset dinner cruise last Saturday and left disappointed. When I booked the brunch cruise last June, the food was delicious and fresh, one of the main reasons we booked this one. The view is spectacular and the two-hour trip around Lake Washington and Lake Union was pleasant. The food left something to be... More

Service was bad and the waiter was very rude to us. Nobody announced when the food was ready as we were on the upper portion of the boat, we didn't even know that the dinner was start after half an hour hour. Will never go back again
