GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in Lake Union.
Had a party of 12 on James’ boat and it fit us all very comfortably! We had a great time with James as captain- he was super laid back and fun to have with us and had great communication leading up to the trip. He gave us a nice tour of all the nice houses along Lake Washington and stopped for us to jump in and swim around. Would definitely book again with James on our next Seattle summer visit!
Jeff is a wonderful host. He communicated very effectively since the time I submitted the enquire to the day of booking. His boat is very well maintained. We will definitely do this every year with Jeff. My family had a great time on lake union.
Simply stated, you must book your boat with Jeff! He goes above and beyond to provide an excellent experience. The boat was extremely clean, great stereo, seating and plenty of space for a group of 8. Plus, Jeff brings the boat stocked with everything you need (cooler with ice, floaties, towels). Jeff is super friendly and makes sure all guests feel comfortable.
Brian was a welcoming and helpful captain! His boat was clean and comfortably fit our group of 9. During the trip, he listened to our requests for swimming or paddle boarding and was able to guide us to a great spot for both! Would definitely book again
Quick and detailed communication from start to end. Boat was very clean and we were given clear instructions regarding operations, safety items and an awesome sound system! Our group had an amazing time. Thank you, we would definitely rent again!
William's boat was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better day and experience for our family and guests. The boat was clean and lots of places to sit and hang out. Our captain, Joan Marie and first mate Kennedy were amazing. They both pointed out houses and places to see. William was very quick to respond with any questions I had leading up to the day. Would highly recommend. 5 stars!
