Took the tour on the amazing M.V.Goodwill II, which had Zack (He doubled up as a deck hand and as a tour guide). Took the 1 hour tour and it was pricey, but must say after the tour it was worth every penny.

My wife and I took the Ballard Locks tour and enjoyed it very much. The scenery was beautiful and a member of the ships crews pointed out all of the highlights along the way. This cruise departed from the Seattle Waterfront on Elliot Bay and travels through the locks and ends in Lake Union. Passing through the locks was really... More

We bought our City Pass here and did this first. It was a nice relaxing cruise around the harbor, and our guide was very informative, and corny (although he copped to that early on). It was fun to see the city from the water, and learn about many building along the way.

The one hour harbor cruise was part of the Seattle City Pass. We enjoyed the cruise and had a very informative guide. It was neat seeing all the sites that were pointed out to us. Highly recommend this cruise for first time visitors. Wear a jacket because it does get cold and windy on the harbor.

Did the 3pm sailing on the 1 hour harbour cruise and were very impressed. Did the cruise as part of our Seattle City Pass so were not expecting a lot but we were surprised. The vessels are nice and was great sitting on the front in the sun. There is a bar where you can order cocktails etc. Youo get... More

Do the Lock tour!!!!! Super informative and beautiful. We got lucky and saw Mt. Rainier. This in an experience to be had by all. They serve snack drinks and booze for your enjoyment on the boats. I was happy we didn't go on a three hour tour only 2 and a half. I've heard three hour tours can get a... More

We did a 1 hr harbour cruise and I would highly recommend it! Its the staff that make this different from your standard harbour cruise. There is an open bar (non alcoholic and food also available). Highly entertaining commentary and outgoing staff with a personality make the cruise a treat :)

Loved it! The staff were kind and the guide was very informative! The trip was well worth taking. The motor coaches that returned to the harbor were very comfortable. The time flew and we all loved the cruise.

My family (60-70 yr old parents and 30-35 yr old brothers) and I took the lochs cruise on October 4, 2014. The sights on the tour were great. It's a wonderful way to see the water in Seattle. Our tour guide was Rachel. She was very knowledgeable but would spend too much time on stories and unnecessary banter which resulted... More

We had a great time on this hour cruise around the harbor! It was interesting to see and hear about Seattle from this prospective, it was a relaxing ride and very informative. There are drinks, snacks and food available. I was so glad we had the camera especially when we are able to see some harbor seals out basking on... More
