Argosy Cruises is a Seattle attraction you don't want to miss. Quite simply, there is no better way to see Seattle than from the water. Come on board one of our four public cruise tours including harbor, locks and lakes tours. Cruises depart daily year-round from downtown Seattle, Lake Union and Kirkland City Dock. All have live narration, wonderful views and feature Seattle's famous places. Perfect for locals and tourists alike.

Really enjoyed this harbor tour with knowledgeable commentary about where you are and what you are seeing. They actually go into one of the ship repair dock areas which is really cool. Boat is sturdy and clean. Indoor and outdoor areas for sightseeing.

We watched the ships from the beach whilst standing next to a huge fire. The ships appeared out of the darkness to provide 20 minutes of christmas carols. About one hundred little ships all decorated with lights and trees. What an amazing sight.

Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour (just opposite to Pike Place Market parking which is an economic one for long duration and covered by City Pass) is a narrated 1-hour sightseeing tour of Seattle’s vibrant and historic harbor, with never-ending skyline views of the city.

Did the Argosy harbor tour with friends from overseas. We had a great time. The crew was friendly, the ship was clean, and the guide was excellent. Not only do you see (and hear about) Seattle's downtown waterfront; you also get to pull very close to some big cargo ships over at the Port of Seattle and learn about the... More

We chose the Lock tour. It was awesome and so interesting. Kelly was the narrator and told lots of facts about Seattle that we would not have known. It was a great view, comfortable, and unique. Would definitely do it again and recommend it to all going to Seattle.

Our tour guide was quite funny. It was a fun tour and they had a fairly good assortment of snacks to buy

I have enjoyed many cruises through Argosy - including the Christmas Ship Cruise. However, I was extremely disappointed in the way they handled it this year in view of construction at their normal location at Elliot Bay in downtown Seattle. I booked a trip expecting that the ship would depart at its normal location and the site only provided a... More

We took the 3 PM cruise and it was amazingly great experience even though it was bloody cold. At first, we were sitting at the second deck outside at the first row but after at about half the cruise we secretly decided to move in the boat and my family bought hot cocoa as it was really cold out side....

It's a kind of tradition. I enjoy it just because you could almost see every nice looking building in Seattle. Its really warm as well.

This was my first year on one of the argosy ships (last year I went on a personal boat and followed). I enjoy the ships and the lights, but the choir is very quiet. On board they make no announcement for when they begin to sing so my date and I missed all the performances. Then when we went on... More
