What a fun way to explore Seattle’s urban Lake Union: by renting a comfortable electric power boat and cruising around. The Electric Boat Company rents 21 foot Duffy boats in 2-4 hour time blocks. The boats accommodate up to 10 people, have a center table for food and drinks, storage, and roll-up side flap windows to keep out weather if needed. Since they are electric, the boats are quiet and easy to handle. We explored the many floating home communities of Lake Union, checked out marinas with yachts, and cruised by the businesses and parks that also line the lake. Afterwards, a tasty meal at lakeside Duke’s Chowder House rounded out the experience. Recommended!
