The Center for Wooden Boats is partnering with the Virginia V in 2018 to get more folks out on the water! Join us for a narrated cruise on Lake Union aboard the 125’ steamship VIRGINIA V. We’ll learn about the sights, sounds, and history of Lake Union while cruising aboard a National Historic Landmark vessel with a fully operational steam engine. Cruises are one hour long. Beer, wine, soda, and snacks available for purchase.

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE that the cruises will be narrated by Seattle local, David B. Williams. David B. Williams is a naturalist, author, and educator whose award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography explores the unprecedented engineering projects that shaped Seattle during the early part of the twentieth century. He is also the author of Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City, The Street-Smart Naturalist: Field Notes from the City, and co-author of Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal. Williams is a Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum and maintains the website
