First of all, I want to say we did use a Groupon and had absolutely no difficulties reserving or using this company. I did reserve several weeks ahead.

We spent a lovely two hours out with family in the sunshine on opening day of boating season.
One of the nice features of these boats are the silent electric motors which make conversation and visiting pleasant. There is none of the engine noise one usually has on a small boat.

The staff was pleasant, professional, and made us feel like special guests.

They provide a map, basic tips on driving the boat, and sent us off in a clean comfortable boat.

I would love to go again!

Tried to redeem my Groupon, was told there was no openings and that I would be put on a "wait list" in case of a cancelation. I called back 10 minutes later on a hunch DIDN'T mention my groupon and Magically there was a spot open of course I couldn't book the spot because I was using a fictitious name. So again I called the next weekend and SAME RESULT! The Groupon expires at the end of May conveniently for them. They certainly lost customers for life and I will bad mouth them every chance I get!

Rented a boat yesterday for my husband's birthday. It is approximately $100 an hour. This was such a fun and relaxing way to enjoy one of the many lakes in Seattle. Lake Union is known for all its houseboats, sailboats, yachts, kyakers, water planes, etc. Lot's to see and enjoy. There is a two hour min, and it goes by quickly. These boats can hold up to nine people. I would recommend this to everyone!

We were in Seattle during the 4 days of summer, :-). We rented a boat for 2 hours, It was really a good time. Great way to see Seattle in a relaxing way.

The company and staff were really friendly, mellow and just made the whole experience comfortable. The boats were clean, comfortable and easy to manuver.

Good Times, Check it out for sure!
