We are finishing the restoration work on the Carol M and hope to be starting up again in April or May. At that time we will resume offering our all private fine-dining and scenic cruises on the waters around Seattle.

We look forward to seeing you, Mark and crew

Welcome to Enchantress Cruises. We’ve been described as “elegant, sumptuous, romantic, relaxing, and unforgettable–one of Seattle’s premiere experiences.”

SOLD: Private Fourth of July, 2022 fire-works celebration.
Our Fourth of July event has sold this year.
Please see Events page for details, and plan ahead for next year.

The moment you step on board the beautiful Carol M. you will be transported to another, earlier time. From a short three hour scenic cruise, which includes hors d’oeuvres, but not meals, to our full gourmet dinner cruise, we provide a truly enchanting and personal experience.

Our cruises originate on Lake Union, home of the famous “Sleepless in Seattle” and house boat community–then navigate the Montlake Cut out into Lake Washington, unless other arrangements have been made.
(We do offer dock-side pickup to homes on Lake Washington.)

As you cruise along the lakeshore you will see some of Seattle’s most beautiful waterfront homes and properties, while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres of two nice cheeses, crackers and fresh grapes on all of our cruises.

We are however best known for our dinner cruise of four or more hours, where we anchor in one of the bays on Lake Washington. There, in the stillness of the water, we serve a delicious, relaxed multi-course dinner before resuming the cruise for home.

Or if you prefer, book us to cruise west through the Ballard Locks and experience the salt air and stunning views of Puget Sound
(for this cruise plan on 7 to 8 hours).

Whichever adventure you choose, you will find it to be far more than a boat ride–we are not your typical charter boat, we create memories!

Our minimum cruise is a three hour charter, includes hors d’oeuvres, but no additional meals at $770.00.
Additional hours are $225.00 per hour.

Our dinner cruises require a minimum of four hours, at $995.00.

Meals are a separate charge, and average $150.00 per person. Please visit our menu page.
We are not licensed to sell or provide alcohol, but if you bring it
we have everything needed to manage and provide full service at no additional cost.

All our cruises are private and designed with you for your personal experience.

• We are licensed as a six-pack charter, and can take up to SIX GUESTS TOTAL.
(Children must be twelve years of age or older)
• We have a minimum time of 3 hours for a scenic cruise, with our most popular cruise being our 4 hour dinner cruise.
• All cruises come with light hors d’ oeuvres, and a two person crew; a licensed captain, and myself, owner, host, and chef.

We look forward to seeing you on the water,
Mark Lanfear
