The dense old-growth forests and rich coal mines on the eastern shores of Lake Washington drove the need to move timer and fuel to Elliot Bay where it could be loaded for distant ports around the globe. The solution was to carve an immense canal to connect Lake Union and Lake Washington to the Puget Sound. This inland waterway became the heart of Seattle's industrial center for many decades. Ship yards, saw mills, factories and fishing fleets grew along the shores. The calm waters of the unified canals and lakes also became host to floating homes and an emerging industry that brought recreational boating for the masses.

This awe-inspiring journey through time will bring you by countless remnants of Seattle's past including the last remaining hidden section of a vast electric trolly system, or the beach where Boeing first built airplanes before airports came into existence. Explore Fisherman's Terminal and see some of the historic fishing boats that have been traveling to Alaska for more than four generations.

Join us on this special private tour aboard a classic yacht and discover how Seattle became such a major city in just a relatively short span of time.
