About Us

Waterways Cruises

We are so very excited to announce and share with the community that Waterways Cruises and Events has moved its office and primary port from 2441 N. Northlake Way, Seattle to 901 Fairview Ave N., Seattle at Chandler’s Cove in South Lake Union!

As we evolve and adjust to the changing needs of our guests and employees during the pandemic, we are grateful for the opportunity to relocate to a premier waterfront entertainment location in the heart of Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood at Chandler’s Cove.

South Lake Union is home to a diverse mix of retail businesses, office buildings, condominiums and apartments, all designed with an emphasis on walkability, excellent public transportation and sustainable design and construction.

We are thankful for the wonderful Wallingford community we have been a part of for the last 16 years in North Lake Union.

Our phone number will remain the same at our new office as well as all staff email addresses.

Our Public and Private Cruises scheduled for May 1st and thereafter will board and depart from our new port at 901 Fairview Ave N., Seattle, 98109. If you currently have a confirmed reservation with Waterways upon our reopening, you will be personally contacted by our team with all updates for your charter.

Our Waterways team can’t express our appreciation enough for your continued support of our family owned business over the last 27 years. We look forward to working with you from our new location at Chandler’s Cove in South Lake Union and are even more excited to be cruising the Seattle Lakes again with our guests!


Founded in 1994, Waterways Cruises and Events continues to provide distinctive cruising experiences on Seattle’s lakes and Puget Sound. Family owned and operated, Waterways has grown from a single yacht for private charters to include three beautiful dining and entertainment yachts, accommodating over 60,000 guests per year for weddings, corporate events, special celebrations, and public dining cruises.

For an Unforgettable Experience … Just Add Water!


We have preferred relationships with an impressive list of Seattle’s top professional vendors that have been hand selected to match the standards of quality we represent. These vendors are knowledgeable and experienced with each of our yachts.
