Seattle’s Most Popular Experiences

Although the weather can be very fickle in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle offers a wide range of boating activities if you are out on the water on a gorgeous day. These are the three most popular Seattle boat rental experiences that you can have.

Cruise Around the Seattle Area
With the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier appearing in the distance, the scenery and wildlife in the Pacific Northwest area are truly world-class. Pack a cooler full of delicious food and drinks, and get ready for some excellent boat rental experiences off the coast of Seattle.

Check Out the Orcas
Whale watching is a common activity in Seattle. These majestic creatures can often be spotted very close to your boat, and if you've seen them in the movies, trust us, they're far superior in person.

Explore Bell Harbor Marina
This is the best recreational marina to dock your Seattle boat rental and explore the restaurants and other Pike Place Market attractions. There are dozens of paths, piers, and shops, and the waterfront is ideal for absorbing the local scene. Grab a table at any of the seafood restaurants for a memorable Seattle dinner.
