We operate most of our dining cruises and private event charters out of our HomePort dock located at Lake Union Piers on South Lake Union (address below).

Waterways Cruises at Lake Union Piers on South Lake Union

Seattle, WA 98109

Boarding Time is the earliest you and your guests may board the vessel. It is typically 30 minutes before Departure Time.

Departure Time is the time of the cruise’s departure from the Departure Location. Passengers must board the vessel by departure time as the yacht will leave promptly at Departure Time. The yacht will be docked on the East Dock (photo to the right). diagram

The yacht will not wait for passengers who have not boarded by Departure Time. There are no refunds for missing your cruise.

You are free to board your cruise any time after the scheduled Boarding Time until Departure Time. We recommend allowing plenty of time for parking and getting to the vessel. Please plan accordingly.

Your cruise leaves promptly at the listed Departure Time and passengers will not be able to board once the vessel is underway.

Construction at Lake Union Piers is now in progress around our location. Please anticipate extra time to navigate traffic and construction – traffic lanes, walkways, and other construction projects will shift.


We recommend back-in Seattle street parking via the PaybyPhone mobile app (Apple Store) (Google Play/Android Store). There are also a few parking lots available at varying rates.
