After a full day of walking around city to see the sights, going on an hour long Harbour Tour was just what we needed. Get your cameras ready, you'll be able to take beautiful photos of Seattle from this view. The guide was friendly and candid, we learnt more about Seattle than we expected. Although we aren't sure that small... More

We took the one hour harbor cruise and liked it a lot. As you board their is a photographer and crew to take a picture which they will of course sell to you. We bypassed this. We wound up standing the entire hour near the rail at the stern of the ship. Too much talk about the alcoholic drinks available... More

The tour was an hour long, so it was just the perfect amount of time to see everything without getting bored. Tour guide was informative and interesting to listen to. I would suggest walking around the boat during the tour instead of sitting so you can see more, but that's really personal preference. It was a great way to learn... More

My Argosy trip was part of my CityPass package. Took the tour on my first day in Seattle- had a great time! The narrator on the boat was informative and funny. The views of the city from Elliot Bay of the Seattle skyline were stunning. Definitely take this tour if you're visiting Seattle, and there are other tours that Argosy... More

The Locks Cruise is a wonderful way to spend 2 and 1/2 hours in Seattle! A bus shuttles you from Pier 55 to a location where you board the boat. The boat then takes you across Lake Union and out into the Puget Sound. The narration provides you with a great deal of information about the maritime industry in Seattle,... More

The locks cruise itself is wonderful, the view is great. I enjoyed the bus ride back, very nice and ac. The cruise needs to update their boat and seats. Not very comfortable for a 2 hour trip. but overall had a good time. Narrator was good, but wish they would have narrated from the front of the boat instead of... More

We only did this cruise around Elliot bay since it was included in the Seattle city pass. Otherwise, I am not sure we would have even considered. That would have been a HUGE mistake on our part to miss this boat ride. The views of the city are absolutely stunning (it WAS a sunny beautiful day) and the gentleman telling... More
