Sailgating the Waterways Way!

Grab your fan gear, your fellow football fans and sailgate with us in style. Waterways Cruises and the Woodmark Hotel are partnering together again this year to bring you Husky Game Day Boat Cruises. Not sure what sailgating is? Sailgating is like tailgating, only instead of celebrating in the parking lot before a home game, you’re tailgating on the water. For the next University of Washington football home game, why not board a beautiful Waterways yacht at the Woodmark Hotel located at Carillon Point? You and your friends will arrive to the game in-style and stress-free.  The ticket price includes a one-hour pre-game scenic cruise on Lake Washington and one drink voucher.

Need an excuse to make a reservation for the next Husky Game Day Boat Cruise? Here are a few reasons why you should sailgate with Waterways Cruises and the Woodmark Hotel for the next UW home game.

Stress-Free Transportation to The Game
With Waterways Sailgating Cruises, there’s no fighting traffic, no 520 bridge toll, or having to find expensive parking. Instead, you and your friends can sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic boat ride to and from the game while enjoying endless stunning views of Lake Washington. Guests will board on the dock right outside of The Woodmark’s Beach Café at Carillon Point, 2.5 hours prior to game start time, with sailing departure promptly two hours before kick-off. From Carillon Point, there’s a one-hour pre-game cruise with the boat arriving at Husky Stadium one hour before kickoff.

Cool Factor
Did you know that the Husky Stadium is one of only three places in the country where a tailgate can be held on the water so close to the stadium? Skip the parking lot, leave the driving to us and arrive to the next UW home game in style on a beautiful Waterways yacht.

Sailgating Buddies
Whether you’re coming onboard with family and friends or are visiting from out of town and have no one to go to the game with, our yacht will be filled with friendly die-hard Husky fans looking to enjoy the game.

Bar on the Water
Don’t wait in those long lines inside the stadium. Looking to get a drink during the game or want a change of scenery at halftime? Our bar onboard will be open during the game and halftime. Come onboard for drinks and snacks.

Stress-Free Transportation After the Game
Our boat typically leaves 30 minutes after end of game unless your captain instructs you otherwise. The boat will return to Carillon Point one hour after the game ends. Instead of fighting the crowds after the game and having to sit in traffic, board our yacht, grab a drink and sit back while our captain sails you back home.

Don’t wait to get your tickets. Space is limited and our boats fill up quickly. Make your reservation for our next Husky Game Day Boat Cruise here. Do you have a large party of family and friends who want to sailgate with us? Our yachts are also available for private charter. Visit our Request a Proposal page for more information.
