"Waterways Cruises offers the only dining cruises on Seattle’s Lakes - Lake Washington and Lake Union,” says Waterways Cruises’ Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Hilton Smith. “In 2012, we have responded to our customers’ desire for an expanded schedule of cruises and added the convenience of additional boarding locations at Seattle’s newly completed South Lake Union Park, located just north of downtown, and Kirkland’s Marina Park in downtown Kirkland, making our cruises more accessible to tourists visiting Seattle and to Eastside residents and their guests."
Waterways Cruises was founded in 1994 by Hilton Smith and grew from a small family operation into Seattle’s most upscale cruise and event company. Originally starting with a single yacht for private charters, Waterways successfully expanded its operations to three luxury vessels (Emerald Star, Olympic Star, and Destiny), accommodating upwards of 40,000 guests per year for weddings, corporate events, special celebrations, and dining cruises. In 2010 Waterways Cruises launched Seattle Lakes Dining Cruises. Featuring seasonal menus, scenic cruise routes and exciting entertainment options, Seattle Lakes Dining Cruises brings fine dining experience and sightseeing opportunities to Lake Union and Lake Washington.
