See Seattle From A Different Perspective with A Waterways Dining Cruise

Come see Seattle from a whole new perspective…from the water. At Waterways Cruises, we offer a variety of dining cruises on Lake Union and Lake Washington, from our HomePort in Seattle or the Kirkland City Dock, depending on the date of the cruise. Our popular dining cruises including the Seattle Dinner Cruise, Weekend Brunch Cruise and Sunday Supper Cruise provide a fun and unique venue for corporate events and weddings and offer a different view of Seattle for anyone cruising with us. For an unforgettable experience, just add water®.

Seattle Dinner Cruise

2.5-hour cruise
3-course plated dinner
Starts at $94.95

Looking for an unforgettable dining experience or a unique way to spend your next special occasion or romantic date night? Join us for a Seattle Dinner Cruise and dine on one of our beautiful and spacious yachts, equipped with large picture windows that provide panoramic views of the Seattle sights and skyline along with a fully stocked bar, outdoor decks and climate-controlled interior for year-round cruising.

Our dinner cruises are complete with the finest culinary offerings, friendly, attentive service from our staff and stunning views of Seattle’s lakes and city skylines. Enhance your special occasion with add-ons such as chocolate-covered strawberries, rose petals on your table, roses presented by your Captain, a local artisan cheese board, skewered prawns or a personalized celebration cake.

Tip: Since many of our guests celebrate their special occasions onboard, we recommend guests wear anything from business casual to dressy attire for our dinner cruises. A sweater or light jacket is recommended for cooler weather when viewing the outdoor decks.

Weekend Brunch Cruise

2-hour cruise
Brunch buffet
Starts at $79.95

Some of the sights you’ll see along the Weekend Brunch Cruise include the University Bridge and Montlake Bridge (two of the four bascule bridges here in Seattle), the 520 bridge, which happens to be the world’s longest and widest floating bridge, a visit to Bill Gates’ house, the houseboats on Lake Union including the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat, Gas Works Park, a cruise through the Montlake Cut and breathtaking views of the Seattle skyline from the water, just to name a few.

If you can pull yourself away from the sights, you’ll enjoy an expansive buffet of classic Northwest brunch favorites, including our wildly popular chef attended omelet station. A full-service bar is available onboard for the purchase of specialty cocktails, wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks or you can have your server bring you Bloody Mary’s and bottomless mimosas directly to your table. Enhance your cruise with a Party Package, which comes balloons, a personalized cake and a bottle of champagne – perfect for any occasion you might be celebrating!

Tip: For the best view on the boat, be sure to reserve a window table and pay a visit to one of our outdoor decks during your cruise.

If you’re looking for a fun, dining outing for the whole family, then our Sunday Supper Cruises are for you. We recommend guests wear comfortable, casual attire on this cruise.

Flowers, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, personalized cakes and balloons are available with an advance purchase.

As we cruise into the cooler months, each of our yachts are equipped with climate-controlled interior salons for comfortable, year-round cruising. A sweater or light jacket is recommended for cooler weather when viewing from the outdoor decks.

Tip: Did you know you can meet your Captain and visit the pilothouse during your cruise? Once onboard, please check with your server or the Cruise Manager to arrange your visit to the pilothouse during a time when the Captain is available and not performing essential duties.
