Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa Claus is coming to town a little early this year for a few extra stops at Waterways Cruises in December! He is bringing toys for the children, Christmas books to read, special gifts, and fun for the whole family onboard our Santa Lunch Cruises.

Right now, our hard-working crew of Elves are busy helping Santa put together goody bags filled with sweets and holiday ornament crafts for the kids. As Santa lands on top of the yacht and collects his bag of gifts and treats, the Elves will be cooking a delicious feast of family holiday favorites. Their menu includes mouth-watering Beecher’s Mac and Cheese, freshly prepared chicken noodle soup, savory roasted turkey with cranberry sauce and apple pie served with honey whipped cream. Yum! Yum! Yum!

After lunch, Santa will be coming down the stairs from the Captain’s pilot house with his bag full of gifts and families can join Santa for a visit, pictures and stories. To spread the cheer of the holidays, we are partnering with the 2015 King County Toys for Tots Campaign to collect new toy donations for needy children. The U.S. Marines from the local Combat Logistics Battalion 23 will be onboard to collect the donations.

Santa Lunch Cruises are scheduled on Saturday, December 12 and Saturday, December 19 from 12 to 2 pm. Create wonderful family holiday memories and book your tickets now! Bring a new, unwrapped toy for a donation, stop by to chat with the friendly Marines, and don’t forget to visit the pilot house to take in the views from behind the Captain’s wheel!
