This was a very informative and interesting tour. The downside was the crowd noise and heat. There were people hanging out in the bathrooms reading books just to get in the ac and have some quiet. Bring sunscreen.

The harbour cruise was part of our City Pass package. What a nice treat to see the Seattle skyline from the water. The guide who lead the tour was very informative on all kinds of subjects ranging from history of Seattle, what all of the buildings are and the container ships. Good drinks on the ride in actual glasses! I... More

My mother and I took one of the Argosy Harbour Cruises as part of our CityPass. The process of obtaining tickets was very easy and quick. We were able to board a late morning cruise around the Harbour, which lasted about an hour. We really did enjoy learning all the facts about Seattle from our guide, it was very informative.... More

It seemed like a touristy thing to do but I actually learned a lot for Lars, our guide. Got to see Seattle from a unique perspective and enjoy a cool breeze on a hot day. Get there early to sit on the top deck, our was the first of the day and pretty much full. We also saw a number... More

I take the Argosy Harbor tour every time I go back to Seattle because I love the views of the city, but it is a particular must do for a person new to the area and city - and perfect for those with limited time. Not only will you get that beautiful Seattle skyline, but the narration gives you tons... More

With multiple cruises to choose from, Argosy is a great choice while visiting Seattle. I recommend going later in the day when it is less crowded and temperatures are pleasant. The crew is very helpful and provided excellent narration of the sites along the waterfront and beyond. It's a great way to take some time off from shopping or land... More

Boat was comfortable and the guide was very informative. Probably the best boat tour in Seattle. Lots of waterways, people out kayaking, cool boat houses, locks themselves, good bar, popcorn and snacks. Lots of fun.

My friend had never been to Seattle before and I hadn't been in there in years so we decided to take this cruise. It was a really nice day but got very cold when the wind blew so be prepared take a jacket! The cruise is really informative and a great way to see Seattle. Definitely enjoyable.

It is what it says on the tin; a narrated cruise around the bay with a good opportunity to get some great photos of the Seattle skyline from the water. Narration was interesting and light (apart form the joke about Superbowl XLIX ;-D), and with the lovely weather, the views were stunning. Part of the Citypass, which makes it good... More
