We absolutely loved our time on our electric boat. Two hours was plenty of time for us. The boat was very easy to drive. We packed a picnic, blasted our music and enjoyed the scenery.

This is a fun way to gather a group of family or friends to cruise around Lake Union and see things from the water. It would be a great way to show out of town guests all of our unique floating homes and float planes.
