Seattle's Most Unique Experience
Since its creation in 2011, Hot Tub Boats has been Seattle’s premier boat rental experience. Located on Lake Union, renters enjoy the comfort of a spa from the freedom of a boat as they soak in the Seattle skyline and revolving scenery. Joystick navigation, Bluetooth speakers, and plenty of space for food and drinks make this the most unique way to get out and see the city and because of the on-board heaters, the Hot Tub Boat is available year-round and stays at a toasty 104 degrees.
our story Designed & Built in Ballard
Hot Tub Boats is an independent business started in the Seattle Metro area. Concept, design, build and execution have all been in-house by a small, devoted team of shipwrights. We are committed to preserving our community, job growth and protecting our valuable and abundant waterways.
ONE OF A KIND
Our free thinking environment allowed us to break the mold and create a revolutionary design. By merging classic wooden boat design with radical concepts we created a truly one of a kind vessel.
AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
Combining the comfort of a spa and the freedom of a boat, time spent on the Hot Tub Boat is unlike any other. The easy navigation, continuous heating, and elegant design turns any day into a special adventure.
COMMITMENT TO CRAFTSMANSHIP & CARE
From our shop in Ballard to our dockside rental team on Lake Union, each member of Hot Tub Boats approaches their job with enthusiasm and attention to detail.
A CONCEPT BORN OUT OF NECESSITY...
Well, kind of... The world may not have needed the Hot Tub Boat, but they sure as heck enjoy it. What started off as a boat builder's quirky idea has turned into an international sensation and an internet phenomenon.
giving back A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS
None of this would be possible without the support of our community. That is why we dedicate so much time and energy to giving back. Between fundraisers, events, and donations we always try to uplift the community that has done the same for us over the past 10 years.

"This may have been the best Seattle adventure we have ever been on. The staff was very professional and helpful. There were changing rooms and storage for the items we didn't want to take on the boat. The boat had plenty of room for our cooler and they even provided waterproof containers for phones, keys, etc. The blue tooth speaker was perfect. The water stays warm and our float around Lake Union was incredible. The best way to see Seattle! Can't wait to go again!"
"What a great time. Everything you need. Great staff! The boat is so easy to drive. So cool being out on the water and soaking in a hot tub. If you’re thinking about doing it, just go for it. You won’t regret it!"
"This was a magical date. A beautiful sunset on the water in a hot tub! Very friendly staff with a fantastic outdoor shower after your trip completes. Absolutely the best way to see the city."
"This was an amazing experience! I loved our two hours on the hot tub boat. It was really easy to use and fun to see the sights of lake union from. They had dry boxes for our electronics and a storage place for other items. We were able to change and shower off on site after returning our boat. I thoroughly enjoyed our time on the boat and I am already thinking about when I can do this again!"
"We had the most relaxing and special day out on the water. This is such a unique way to see Seattle. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Small touches like having gorgeous shower products and a welcoming change area, really made this experience 10/10. We’d love to do it again!"
