I have no idea why I had not heard of the Electric Boat Company before. I have lived here all my life and been to Lake Union several times. My sister got a Groupon, $100 for two hour cruise and invited me and several other family members to join her. To begin with the whole operation was very safe. You... More

I've done the Electric Boats a few times and always its a fun day on the water. I love the fact that you can command your own boat and sail around Lake Union. Brings your drinks, snacks and MP3 (the have a connection onboard) and enjoy the ride. You can take turns driving the boat while enjoying the sights.

If you plan to go on the weekend, please call and make a reservation 3-5 days in advance. It is $100/hour and the boat seats 10. My husband and I went by ourselves from 2-4 on a Sunday. You can bring your own food and drink. I brought a cooler with ice, wine, glasses, and cheese & crackers. I recommend... More

With 10 adults, a couple picnic lunches and a last bit of the summer sun, you can't find a much better way to spend an afternoon and show people a different side of the City. These boats offer a slow, steady 'easy to learn' way to float around the lake- wind or no wind. And while quiet, they can be... More

When a friend treated our group an outing on these boats, I had some serious doubts about size, seating comfort, access, reliability and . . . and . . . and, the weather, of course. The day came, unexpectedly sunny with a hint of Autumn in the air. Glorious. Was able to relax immediately as we approached the tiny harbor... More

We spent a few hours puttering around Lake Union with family and really enjoyed the unique perspective of Seattle from the water. The boat was the perfect size for 5 adults and 4 kids under five y.o., and offered enough room for us to spread out a picnic. The employees were very friendly, and we had a terrific afternoon.

There were 6 adults and two little kids... little ones' life jackets provided... adult jackets onboard. Very organized welcome, essential to pre-reserve. Boat was more than ample pleasantly sea worthy.... Close up view of house boats and working waterfront .... would have to be pretty jaded not to love this..... we are from here and it was still amazing
