Top 3 Reasons to Enjoy Seafair on a Yacht
July 26, 2016

It would be a surprise to find more than a handful of Seattleites who haven’t heard about, observed, or participated in the annual Seafair festivities that have happily graced this town for the last 69 years. Seafair has pretty much become synonymous with Seattle summer fun.

For most, it’s not a question about whether they want to celebrate, but more about finding the right venue for their needs and expectations. Here’s our top 3 reasons why we believe celebrating Seafair on a Waterways yacht takes the cake.

1) You can’t beat the views.  It’s the only way to be close to all the action without having to camp out before the Seafair festivities begin in order to save a space to place your blankets and lawn chairs, knowing full well it will get encroached upon as the crowds pile in. Our Seafair Air Show Logboom cruise allows guests to be in the center of all the action with front-row views of the Unlimited Hydroplane races and the Boeing Seafair Air show.

 

2) The food and drinks are on another level. Forget peanuts and hot dogs. We have a talented Executive Chef, mixologist, bartenders and an amazing kitchen crew who carefully craft dining and drink offerings for guests. I’m getting hungry just thinking about the Seafair BBQ menu, which includes corn bread, black bean salad, teriyaki chicken wings, BBQ braised pork sandwiches, grilled citrus salmon, fresh fruit and more! It’s important to make sure you fuel yourself properly when celebrating Seafair, and our bartenders will be serving up a variety of delicious drinks and cocktails to quench your thirst. 

 

3) A relaxing and fun atmosphere.  No need to stress about parking, setting up hours before, or packing a cooler. We have you covered at Waterways. It’s an all-inclusive experience, including a cruise, delicious food, drinks for purchase, and views of the Seafair festivities. All you have to do is bring yourself, make sure your phone is charged (for photos), and maybe bring a little sunscreen too.

 

Seafair Fun Facts

  • Seafair is ten weeks long and includes 75 events
