Capacity is limited, so advance purchase is recommended. If there are tickets remaining, they will be available for sale the day of the tour, starting at 11 AM on East Lake Union at the tour staging area at the foot of East Hamlin at Fairview Avenue East.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Floating Homes Association whose mission is to support and nurture the floating home community and maintain the health of the marine environment.
This year's tour will feature twelve homes, on the East shore of Lake Union. The admission price includes electric boat and bus shuttle transportation between the north and south ends of the tour. This is a self-guided walking tour and participants should expect to walk between docks, beginning at any home they wish. Comfortable, slip-on shoes are strongly recommended. There are stairs and uneven surfaces on some of the docks. Participants will be required to remove their shoes or put slippers over their shoes; slippers will be provided. No backpacks or strollers will be allowed in the homes.
The tour will take place rain or shine, and participants of all ages will be required to have a ticket, with the exception of babes in arms. Free espresso drinks and restroom facilities will be provided. Refreshment stands will be set up to offer food and drink for purchase.
