Welcome to Enchantress Cruises. We have been described as “elegant”, “sumptuous”, “romantic”, “relaxing”, and “unforgettable”, a Seattle experience you won’t want to miss.
The moment you step aboard our lovingly restored bridge deck cruiser, the Carol M., you will be transported to what can only seem like another time. From a scenic outing, to a full gourmet dinner cruise, your host and chef Mark Lanfear provides a truly enchanting experience. Most of our cruises begin on Lake Union, home of the famous Sleepless in Seattle houseboat, and the city’s thriving houseboat community. Passing through Portage Bay, the Montlake Cut, and by Husky Stadium, you will enter Lake Washington. There you will glide by some of Seattle’s most beautiful waterfront homes and properties. We travel slowly, and stay close in, giving you unsurpassed views of lake, land, and sky.
Mark, a former restaurateur and chef, artist, and gardener, takes a seasonal, fresh, and organic approach to food. He is happy to suggest wines that you may bring to complement your meal.
Escape with us, as we savor the natural beauty of the water, with an exquisite meal, all in a private and unique setting.
