Hanging out with bae in Seattle but tired of the same old routine? Stuck in a rut going to the same old places?
Look no further. Blessed with being a coastal city, Seattle is surrounded by beautiful bodies of water. So take advantage of this! You and your boo can get your dating game off the ground with these 5 aqua-friendly date ideas.
As far as water-based date ideas go, this one's an oldie but goldie. Recreate your own Notebook scene (kind of) and go on a breathtaking paddling adventure with your loved one. And to make it even better? This one takes place at sunset. As if a paddle date wasn’t romantic enough already.Ballard Kayak
You love the Emerald city and you love your bae (the order is up to you). Celebrate and enjoy both as you take your date on a narrated cruise around the city. Look back in on the urban landscape you love with the person you love while feeling the wind in your hair and the smile on your faces.Seattle Harbor Cruise
If you (and your wallet) feel like bringing bae on something more unique than a cruise, consider this private sail aboard a Cal 3-30 sloop, The Solana.
Manned by a crew that you can help out if you want to, The Solana will give you and your date a little more privacy while you revel in the beautiful skyline, visible all the way across Lake Union.Lake Union & Charters Adventures
(It’s still technically water-based.. Because… wine is a liquid that can be evaporated? And like a seaplane starts on the sea, so…)
It goes without saying that a nice wine turns any date from a good one into a great one. So take your date to try not just one, but several award-winning wines at Rio Vista winery.
“That sounds great,” you say. “But how on earth will I get there?”
Enter: the seaplane? Sweep your date off his or her feet as you take a quick sojourn to the winery via a gorgeous seaplane ride. It’ll be a truly unforgettable trip. So long as you go easy on the wine.
What’s that? The wine is a fine idea, but a seaplane ride is just a little too tame for you and your date? Well you two are quite the pair of tough cookies.
How’s this then: get down n' dirty with your date on a whitewater raft adventure down the Wenatchee River. And then check out three of the finest wineries in Seattle.
How’s that for a tandem adventure?
