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

We got the CityPass, and this was included. The line to board the boat, was über long, but once it started moving it went pretty quick. I suggest you get there early so that you can get a good seat on the top deck. Port or Starboard doesn't really matter which, you just want to be next to the wall... More

Our guide/narrator was funny and informative. Like just about any other day in March it rained but we still had a clear view of everything he pointed out. While the seawall is under construction the ticket kiosk has moved to beside the aquarium instead of being on pier 55 (there are signs so you can't miss it). We had the... More

The cruise was part of the city pass we purchased. A pleasant hour cruise of the harbour. Close up view of the skyline from the sea, even got to see some sea lions sunbaking on a platform.

We decided on a whim to take the 1 hour Harbor Cruise and were so glad we did! Weather was a little rainy but you can sit inside and still see everything with ease. The gal who did the narration did an excellent job and really gave you the chance to know more about this great city! You can also... More

As I meandered my way through downtown Seattle to get to the aquarium, I pondered what other activities might be a fun way to spend the day. I was actually not planning on going on any sort of boat tour and am generally leery of them because you usually get stuffed on a boat with a bunch of other people... More

We went on the cruise as part of the City Pass . It was good for learning about Seattle's history and touring the bay.

Wasn't sure I was all that excited about a 1 hr cruise, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip! Was an awesome trip and there was a ton of information about Seattle and it's history given on the tour. I'd go again in a heartbeat. Well worth the cost of a City Pass!
