FarmBoat "Taste Local" Foodie Cruise     Aboard the Historic Steamship Virginia V

Sign up for a tantalizing local food and fun adventure! On special Thursday nights from 6-8, the historic steamship Virginia V will fire up her boilers and depart from Lake Union Park near downtown Seattle. Watch the crew skillfully work the massive century-old steam engine as the Virginia V quietly pulls away from the pier.

Enjoy a two-hour evening cruise out to Lake Washington--pass by the floating houses where Sleepless in Seattle was filmed and through the famous Montlake "Cut" Canal. Breathtaking views of downtown skyline.
