    Sea Ray Sundancer 36' for Charter! Seattle boating in style!!

    If you’re looking for a boat to charter, stop scrolling now. What a great day we had with pals, Jeff was a perfect host & captain who helped us swim until our hearts were content. A perfect experience, our only regret is that it wasn’t for longer! Can’t wait to come back to Seattle for another trip!

    Lake Union and Chill with Bayliner 3288 Boat

    I rented this to celebrate my wife's birthday, everything was perfect. The boat looks exactly like it does in the pictures, it's clean and have plenty of space for us to enjoy. Captain Brian was super nice through out, explained the area we were going to and took plenty of pictures for us. Definitely recommend getting this boat.

    Cruise around the lakes with Maxum 2700SCR Motor Yacht! 10 passengers✅ Bathroom✅

    We had an amazing day! Brian was very knowledgeable of the area and took us out to see Mount Rainier on lake Washington and then pulled over into the bay so we could hang out and swim. I would book his boat and him again anytime I wanted to go back out on the water. If your looking for a boat to rent, Brian’s is it!

    38’ Regal cruising yacht 🛥 Seattle

    Had a party of 12 on James’ boat and it fit us all very comfortably! We had a great time with James as captain- he was super laid back and fun to have with us and had great communication leading up to the trip. He gave us a nice tour of all the nice houses along Lake Washington and stopped for us to jump in and swim around. Would definitely book again with James on our next Seattle summer visit!
