    The sunset. The bald eagle hunting next to us. The seaplane landing. The music. The wind. The comfort of knowing we were in good hands with Captain Will. Not one worry. He is a master of his craft...and so kind and thoughtful. He makes you feel at home. The best experience I have had in a very long time. Don’t even wait a second! Book. Unless I beat you to it ;)

    "BOOK WITH JEFF! Jeff was an AMAZING host and made my 22nd birthday such a special day. The boat was amazing, super clean, spacious and the speakers 10/10. We sailed on South Lake Union for 2 hours and had a blast. He showed us all the best places to take photos, go for a swim and just have a grand time. Prior to the day of boat ride - he communicated with me so well and made sure I had everything that I needed. He provided us with complementary items such as - a bag of ice, a cooler, somewhere to grill food and he even helped us grill up the food we brought. He made sure that we had a good, stress free time. He really made us feel comfortable and welcome. The whole boat ride was just an amazing experience. I will definitely be booking with him again soon, and you should too - 100/100! "
