Candere is a one of a kind, vintage, owner built boat based on Lake Union in Seattle, WA. Personally restored by her owner, Captain Dylan. Candere is available for private sightseeing and cocktail cruises. Designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind, Candere is suitable for northwest cruising all year round.
Aboard Candere you will be in the hands of a professional and in the lap of luxury. A talented bartender and skilled boat handler, Captain Dylan will introduce you to Seattle. Starting in South Lake Union where all of Seattle's major industries have flourished, you will cruise by boats and floating homes of all sizes, shapes and ages, including the oldest floating home (built in 1907). Cocktail in hand (or "mocktail" for those not enthusiastic about alcohol or too young to imbibe), you will get a great look at UW stadium, and on a clear day, Mt. Rainier will loom beautifully to the south of Lake Washington. Returning to Lake Union, you are likely to see draw bridges that are nearly 100 years old open up for sailboats and large yachts, Seaplanes taking off and landing, locals enjoying the sunshine from kayaks and stand up paddleboards, cross paths with the "Duck Tours" during their 20 minutes on the water. After a few hours aboard Candere, you will want to stay all day.
What you need to know:
Candere can accommodate 6 passengers maximum. This includes children of all ages. No exceptions can be made, this rule is due to Coast Guard regulations.
You may bring any food and nonalcoholic beverages that you like. Beer, wine, and cocktails are available onboard.

Candere boasts a full bar for mixed drinks and cocktails, several different brews and her very own red, white, and sparkling wines. You may make special requests. Candere is licensed by the Washington State Liquor Control Board, therefore outside booze is not allowed.
Our group trip with Dylan was even better than imagined. Dylan was very friendly and felt more like a part of our group than the captain. The boat was in great shape and was perfect for what we wanted. Renting the Thomley was even better than advertised!
Had an awesome time out on the lake with Dylan and his boat, Candere. Dylan struck the delicate balance between professional/informative and fun/approachable. We definitely enjoyed our time on the water with him and would recommend him without hesitation!
My friends and I had an absolute blast aboard the Thomley. Dylan was an excellent captain, plus he makes great cocktails. I would definitely recommend Dylan to anyone looking to cruise around the Lake Union & Lake Washington areas!
