Tailgate The Seattle Way With Husky Fan Cruises

See our updated 2016 post.

Why fight game day traffic, when you can sail to the game in style?

All right, everyone—September is right around the corner. The sweet smell of turf fills the air, and after a week of open practices, fans can barely contain their pre-season excitement as opening day draws closer.

Though Dawg fans are gearing up for what looks to be a stellar season, this fall will also be bittersweet as the city pays a heartfelt goodbye to the original Husky Stadium. With its imminent demise and renovation close at hand, now is the time to utilize the stadium’s strategic location and cruise to the game in style.

Forget all of the hassle of parking and elbowing your way through the crowds, and take one of three game-day cruises instead. Each of these unique jaunts will ensure your pre-game experience is one to remember.

Ivar’s Salmon House’s Husky Brunch Cruise

The anticipation and excitement of the Huskies’ first game against Eastern Washington can leave you feeling ravenous—but Ivar’s has a quick fix with their legendary Husky Brunch Cruise. Fill up on crepes, alder-barbecued salmon, fresh crab and oysters, French toast and omelets at Ivar’s Salmon House. After brunch, you’ll step straight onto a boat that will shuttle you to and from Husky stadium.

Adults $55, Children 6-12 $40   |  401 NE Northlake Way   |  Reservations: (206) 632-0767

Chinook’s Dawg Boat

Park (boat or car) for free at Chinook’s on Nickerson Street and hop aboard a scenic cruise to the stadium. Stop inside for some delicious seafood before you head out — you’ll need the energy for a jam-packed day of purple and gold!

$22 per person  |  1900 West Nickerson, Seattle   |  Reservations: (425) 455-0732

The Woodmark Hotel’s Husky Game Day Cruise

Are you concerned about your commute to the game from the East Side? Avoid traffic and sail on the “Champagne Lady” across Lake Washington from Kirkland’s Woodmark Hotel. Boarding begins approximately two hours prior to kick-off, and passengers can enjoy no-host bar service onboard this beautiful chartered cruise. This is the perfect way to arrive at the game with gusto and kick-off your tailgating festivities.

$42 per person    |   1200 Carillon Point, Kirkland    |  Tickets

About Taylor Moore

Born in Farmville, Virginia (much cooler than the Facebook game), but raised in Olympia, Taylor graduated from University of Washington with a B.A in Communications and Sociology. She’s a major foodie and loves trying new restaurants and new food, and is also passionate about traveling the globe — just like her idol, Anthony Bourdain. When she’s not writing, eating, lustfully wandering Nordstrom or J. Crew, or looking up cat videos on YouTube, you might find Taylor jet-setting around to sunnier skies whenever she gets the opportunity.
