We took the harbour tour around Elliott Bay seeing the sights of Seattle from the water. The trip lasted about 75 minutes and was quite interesting. We were also fortunate that the weather was sunny and warm. I would recommend this tour so long as the weather is good - I would imagine it could be rather uncomfortable in inclement... More

The hour tour is a great little introduction to Seattle. If you are visiting for the first time, sit back on the boat with a local beer or wine and hear a little about the city. It's a great way to find out what you want to see more of.

As part of the Seattle City Pass, we got a 1 hour cruise around the bay/waterfront of Seattle. These cruises were on a schedule, so we could depart the area and return when the time came for our cruise. Boarding was fairly quick and then we got underway shortly thereafter. We started down the right side of the waterfront and... More

We were fortunate enough to have 80 degree weather on our cruise so the sky was clear and it was beautiful. I would recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your visit to Seattle so that you get a good idea of the different parts of the city.

Had a ride as part of the Seattle City Pass that I bought. They had some good margaritas on the boat and it gave me a good opportunity to take some photos. Take your zoom lense!

We were blessed with a great 'weather' day and decided to try the harbor cruise. Crew was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. We choose great seats just to the stern on the second level so we had some shade during half the tour.

This is a one hour cruise, short but fun and informative. The tour guide was quite knowledgable. The views of the city, Mt. Ranier was spectacular. Fun for everyone
