When you're surrounded by as many lakes and creeks as Emerald City, boating quickly becomes one of your favorite activities. Although it's not summer yet, we can get into the warm-weather spirit with free boat rides in Seattle all through this month! 

As part of the Seattle Boat Show 2020, there'll be free boat rides from January 24 to February 1. 

The cute mid-sized, all-electric 21′ Duffy boats by the Electric Boat Company will leave the docks at South Lake Union every 20 minutes and offers 20-minute rides. 

The scheduled times are between 11:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. It begins a little earlier on the weekends and you can pick a spot between 10:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m. 

Keeping in mind that we're still in chilly January, these vessels will be heated. And they'll provide blankets to add to the snuggle factor too! 

During your short voyage, you can see several ships, yachts, sails, and fancy cruisers on the 580-acre glacial lake, while the guide dishes out fun facts about them.

Don't forget your camera because you'll get the best views of the city right from the water.

You'll be able to see the Gas Works Park on the northern part of the shore, the 502-feet Fremont Bridge, and of course the skyline with the Space Needle glinting in the background. 

There are several other attractions as part of the marine extravaganza.

And if you fall in love with the electric boats, you can always rent one here for a couple of hours from the company, have a picnic on the water or a party even! It's one of the most romantic things to do in Seattle

As for us, we'll be sipping our hot cuppas on the craft all this month. Because, whoever said no to a free boat ride, am I right?
