Seattle Boating Trips

Explore Boating in Seattle

Boating enthusiasts won’t have to go far to find water in Seattle. From beautiful Lake Washington in the east to Lake Union near downtown, and Puget Sound and Elliott Bay that hug the waterfront, Seattle’s boating opportunities are endless. Learn how to sail at the Center for Wooden Boats, which offers classes, rentals and free boat rides every Sunday in Lake Union. Putter around on a motor boat, or better yet, a cleaner electric boat; rentals are available at the Electric Boat Company. Visit in the summer for Seafair, a month-long festival culminating in the grand sea parade, Fleet Week. Also check out the Ballard Locks to watch boats travel from Lake Washington Canal to the Sound.
