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

We took the one hour harbor cruise. This was a short but informative way to see the beautiful coastline of Seattle and learn about the history of the city. Our guide was funny and very knowledgeable! The weather was warm and sunny and we could sit back, relax and learn about the city. It was a great alternative to looking... More

Was a great informative trip around the bay. Got the Pass package which made it well worth the money.

This site-seeing tour was relaxing and offered great views of the Seattle skyline. The two-hour locks tour was interesting and fun. The view of Mount Hood as we left the harbor was just breath-taking. Going through the locks on the ship as tourists on the sides watched was an interesting experience. The next day we watched from the sides and... More

We took the sunset cruise that went through the Ballard Locks, saw one of the Deadliest Catch ships, the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat and oh so much more!! This is well worth the money, and you can have a drink, sit back and enjoy!

While visiting in Seattle, my family enjoyed a two hour Argosy Cruise that included Lakes Union and Washington. My son and daughter-in-law had been on an Argosy Cruise before and therefore recommended this to us. We all had a great time, even my very young toddler grandsons. The boat is a nice size, with both indoor and outdoor seating. We... More

The earlier in the day you go, the less busy it is. Fun tour explaining some of the sites, not too long for kids. Top deck provides the best view, but is obviously windy at times.

Did a Ballard Locks cruise on the Good Times III (and it included much of Elliot Bay as well) this past week for a friend's birthday celebration. You got to see parts of Lake Union, go through the locks, and then through Salmon Bay into Elliot Bay/Puget Sound. Around 2.5 hours, much sightseeing and really fun! Going through the Locks... More

We bought the city pass looking at most of the other attractions. We had some free time after lunch and decided to use this to fill our time. It was a perfect hour! It was unusually sunny the weekend we were there so we very much enjoyed the sunshine a breeze. The City Pass gets you just the narrated cruise... More
