Seattleites love the water, and without a doubt you’ll find plenty of water-themed activities in the Pacific Northwest. From whale watching and fishing to canoeing, swimming and charter boating, Seattle offers a little bit of everything for people who want to get wet. To get a feel of what life on the water here is really like, you should definitely consider charter boating in the Seattle area.
There are Seattle boat charters available for every occasion, including sightseeing, parties, weddings, and of course, fishing. Follow the links (at bottom) for additional information on tailoring your own Seattle boating charter, either on the Sound or on Lake Washington.
You may be asking if there’s anything special for the kids. Two words: Green Lake! This is a small but beautiful lake in the middle of the city, approximately three miles in circumference. The paved perimeter pathways attract walkers, joggers, bicyclists (and unicyclists), rollerbladers, skateboarders, and the occasional brave soul riding a self-invented whatchamathingy.
In the summer, Seattle’s Green Lake is a perfect spot for kids to charter their own sailboards, sailboats, pedal boats, skiffs and canoes by the hour. Green Lake is both safe and quiet, since motorized craft are not permitted. It’s an ideal place for kids to get their sea-legs. The park also hosts a great Milk Carton Derby every summer as one of the opening events of Seattle’s annual Seafair.
If you’re dying to see what the Seattle charter boating scene has to offer, sign up and reserve a spot at The Oasis.
