Waterways Cruises was founded in 1994, growing from a small family operation into Seattle’s most distinctive cruise and event company. Originally starting with a single yacht for private charters, Waterways successfully expanded its operations to three beautiful dining yachts (Emerald Star, Olympic Star, and Destiny), accommodating upwards of 40,000 guests per year for weddings, corporate events, special celebrations, and dining cruises.

Featuring seasonal menus, scenic cruise routes, exciting entertainment options and private table dining, Waterways Cruises brings unique dining experiences and sightseeing opportunities to Lake Union and Lake Washington. Cruises depart from the Waterways Cruises HomePort on north Lake Union, South Lake Union Park, Kirkland Marina Park and other docks on the Seattle area’s waterfront.
