“Mini Cruise”

Ocean Shores Electric Boat Company
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Electric Boar Company is probably the best way to take a scenic view through the canals. You have complete control of your boat and it can accommodate many passengers as well. Just keep track where you are going so you don't become lost and confused.

Be sure to use the restroom before boarding.

Nancy and Tom are so nice and have a cute and quaint gift shop as well.

Take your picnic aboard one of these charming boats and tour the inland waterways and lakes in Ocean Shores. As other reviewers have said, you can skipper these efficient boats or hire a captain. Do the former-tho boats are easy to drive and the waterways are well-charted. We've had a vacation home in OS for a decade, but still see new things every time we rent an electric boat. This is perfect for picnics-we potluck a wine-and-snacks meal and really enjoy time with friends. The boats are comfy, clean, quiet, and eco-friendly. Water and washrooms are available at the office before you cast off. There is plenty of room aboard for all your picnic things, and a long table-ish thing runs down the middle for setting up the snacks. If you prorate the cost, it's a very very good deal for a unique experience. We usually rent for 2 hours and have a blast. Do this!

Nancy and Tom are the nicest and most accommodating people you will likely meet. They also happen to be the owners of Ocean Shores Electric Boat Company and we encourage you to take advantage of their electric touring boats. Our family of four (college-aged children), all enjoyed taking turns at the helm of our boat, motoring along the freshwater canals and duck lake. The boat itself is simple to drive (no boating experience needed, though helpful of course), very comfortable and seats many more than 4 (guessing 8-10). The boat is covered, but you can keep all sides open to the elements or close down panels as desired. There are tables so you can bring food/drink and picnic while you cruise. We saw plenty of wildlife and throughly enjoyed the start of a wonderful week on the Olympic Peninsula. We hope that this business will stick around for many years to come!

My friend and I found Ocean Shores Electric Boat Company online and found the experience a refreshing way to spend a sunny afternoon. The owners, Tom and Nancy Kizmey could not have been sweeter. Because it was a holiday weekend, we could not rent one of their electric touring boats, but they set us up with a fishing boat that did the job for us. We enjoyed our hour on the canal and Duck Lake, then Tom was able to take us out for a few minutes on one of their tour boats. We would like to recommend this attraction to anyone spending time in Ocean Shores.

Called in the morning and got the last slot for the day to rent the electric boat. I opted to pilot the boat myself but you can also hire a captain for your tour. For one hour it was $80. The boat seats up to ten people, it is fully covered, padded seats, music, and is very smooth. Top speed is 7 knots so you can't go too fast, but fast enough to have a good time. It's pretty easy to operate yourself with no real experience. Kids enjoy "driving" the boat as well! Owners were present, helpful, and very attentive to their customers. I defiantly recommend this to all, they even offer electric paddle boats if you don't want the bigger boats.
