Dylan is a fantastic host and captain. He is knowledgable, friendly, courteous, and incredibly easy to get along with. We enjoyed hearing a little bit of the history of Seattle, a bit of maritime law (no weed on the boat!), about "sailgating" for UW football games, and all kinds of other good stuff.
The tour goes on at a leisurely pace, and I feel 2 hours is the perfect length.

Great tour of water homes , history, the university and Seattle. Fun captain and great boat! We went for a work trip and had some time to take the tour- it was two hours and fun. Good drinks too!

In Seattle for a quick visit, my friends and I enjoyed a lovely sunset cruise with Dylan! He shared with us lot's of knowledge of Lake Union, good humor and great cocktails! If you are looking for neat way to see the area and visit with friends...this is a great way to go!

I did the tour with Dylan on wed, 3/22/17. I was surprised the amount of history I learned while on a tour by water. Dylan is well versed on Seattle, has a unique boat finished by him and the attention to detail is well show in the boat and his tour. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn Seattle waterfront and see amazing views.
Thanks Dylan for a memorable trip !

Great little tour of the lake! Booked a 2 hour cruise in February with my father in law was visiting. Was cold and rainy out but the boat can be fully enclosed, sometimes hard to see out though from the rain drops and windows fogging up a bit. Captain Dylan was super knowledgeable and friendly, got a little history lesson in about the area and the lake! Would be a great cruise in nice weather

My boyfriend took me on Candere for my birthday and it was one of my favorite gifts. It takes off right by Duke's in SLU and if you want to eat you're welcome to bring food onboard with you. The boat is awesome and really comfortable - Dylan has done all the work on it himself and hearing his story was a lot of fun. He did a great job at balancing talking about some scenic stuff and letting us have some personal time. The first round of drinks were on him and they're pretty cheap after that as well. Such a fun experience.

This boat cruise was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Seattle! Dylan was very knowledgeable about the area and the views from the lake were amazing! I would definitely recommend this cruise if you are looking for a different way to see some hidden parts of the city.

Great for friends, family and even kiddos! What a day! The highlight was the animals we got to see up close!

My wife and I took a sunset cruise with Dylan, not really sure what to expect. I'm glad we did, it was definitely one of the most memorable dates we've had a in a long time. Dylan's boat is perfect for a leisurely cruise and a great way to see many different parts of Seattle. He's also a great bartender, and we enjoyed many of the beverage selections he offered, especially the Moscow Mule.
If you are on the fence about trying a private cruise with an unknown captain and boat, fret no more. Dylan is your guy, you'll have a great time. Were not native to the area, but if we ever come back this will definitely be on our list of things to do again!

We had an amazing time on our cruise around Seattle! Dylan was friendly and full of knowledge! The boat is beautiful, and we honestly couldn't have had a nicer afternoon. This is the way we'll be showing friends and family Seattle from now on!
Nadeem B.Sunset Cruise August 19, 2016
Loved the cruise! I couldn't have asked for a better trip within town!! Even though Seattle is the most beautiful city in the summer and loved the views, it was the Captain (I think that's what he was called...Dylan was the name) that made our experience the most memorable. The nicest captain! The best drinks!!
Frank M.Lake Front Mansion Cruise August 19, 2016
Great service! Captain Dylan was very warm and welcoming. We enjoyed having him as our guide. Make sure to bring sunglasses on the cruise!
Jane L.Sightseeing & Cocktail Cruise August 7, 2016
We completed a day of sightseeing with a evening cruise with Dylan! He was the perfect host, knowledgeable with interesting facts about area and a great bartender! Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Beats the big non-personal cruises hands down! Nancdip

Candere Cruising is the only tour I will choose from now on! I have been on the larger tour boats with lots of people. I will never do that again! It was so enjoyable to see Lake Union, enjoy a drink, and visit with Captain Dylan. Everyone had a great seat! Thanks so much!
L A.Sunset Cruise July 19, 2016
Nice boat, and a great captain! Wonderful for a nice evening or day out on the water!
Laura H.Sunset Cruise May 22, 2016
This is BY FAR the BEST way to see Seattle! This cruise is perfect for tourists (like myself) as well as long-time Seattle residents (the friends who accompanied me). The boat is perfect for 2-6 people and takes you on a scenic and highly entertaining tour of Lake Union and the Seattle skyscape.
Dylan is an AMAZING captain and bartender. He has everything you could want as far as drinks and allows you to bring your own food on the boat. He also has an unlimited supply of interesting facts and personal stories that are sure to be of interest for all, but also allows you personal time to relax and enjoy your friends/family/significant other.
I can't recommend this cruise enough for any type of event (night out with friends, romantic evening for two, family outings, etc). And the price is an exceptional flat rate per person! When you book the boat, it is booked for your party only so you won't have to share the trip with strangers, even if it is just two people paying for that time slot.
Definitely take advantage of this tour - you won't regret it! It was the highlight of my trip to Seattle!

Great way to see Seattle

Dylan was nice and knowledgeable about the area. Also the price was great.
Roxanne L.Lake Front Mansion Cruise August 22, 2015
Very nice cruise around lake Washington. Super relaxing. You can bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks. You can buy beer, wine, or spirits onboard. Captain is very friendly and let us play our own music through the speakers. He was very knowledgeable about the lake and Seattle in general. Highly recommend!
Michiel P.Lake Front Mansion Cruise August 22, 2015
Very relaxed cruise on the lake. Dylan knows a lot about the area and the history of Seattle. Definitely recommended.
Amy C.Sightseeing & Cocktail Cruise July 1, 2015
Kids love it. They get to drive the boat because we were the only boat on the lake. We were for spring break. It was a nice , informative 2 hour cruise.
