We arrived into Seattle and had a wonderful sunny day ahead of us, so we planned a harbour cruise. The tour was 75 minutes and made a large circle around Elliot Bay. The Olympic Mountains in the distance were in full view and the cruise even found a group of sea lions for us. Very informative tour and just the... More

The information was great, view was great, over all experience was positive for me and my husband but the kids were not as captivated as they could have been. After going on Ride the Ducks, I feel like Argosy has room to grow if they want to maximize their potential. I would recommend to adults but it was the city... More

Our family of 6 went to the tourist kiosk quite late, but they advised if we were quick e could get the last trip out, and gave us a code for a really good deal. We all enjoyed the cruise + the commentary which was humorous and informative.

The tour gave a wonderful view of Seattle from the waterfront/sound. Our "guide"/speaker was in the Coast Guard and had lots of great stories. His knowledge of Seattle and great jokes made the trip awesome. They also serve drinks (alcoholic and not) right to your seat so you don't have to get up and go to the lounge. Great service,...

I took my 18 year old daughter to Seattle for a Spring Break Mom-Daughter vacation. She had never been there before. We started with an Agosy Harbor Tour. Luckily it was sunny and not to breezy. It was a wonderful way for her to get a great history of the city and get the lay of the land. I got... More

This tour lasted about an hour and its a great way to see the city from the water. The cruise was very informative and I learned a lot about the city. The staff was great and the bar was always open.

There are several different types of cruises, but the one I took was the harbour cruise. It is 60 minutes and goes around the harbour. It is narrated throughout and gives great views of Seattle and surrounding areas. The boat has both outdoor and indoor heated decks. The indoor part has food and drinks available for purchase. It was a... More
