I've been on harbor cruises elsewhere and was disappointed by this one. It drives in one circle for about an hour. The Seattle skyline was lovely. The narrator tried to be entertaining but it came across as fake and forced. Save yourself the money of the cruise and just take a ferry ride across. It costs less for the same... More

I went on the Argosy cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington with friends and family, leaving at 1:15pm from the AGC Marina. The morning hours had been overcast with some rain but by the time we arrived for the tour the sun started to come through. Because of the weather earlier in the day not many people had booked...

We went on the Locks cruise in Seattle. A bus took us from Pier 55 to Lake Union and we boarded the ship. We toured the lake and went through the locks from fresh water to salt water. The captain of the ship and a guided provided us with a very good narration during the whole cruise and explained many... More

We started our day of sightseeing in Seattle with a harbour cruise. Good decision as we were immediately orientated to the general lay out of the city. Good commentary and comfortable ride

We booked the Locks cruise. Although we met at Pier 55, we were taken by coach over to Lake Union where the ship then sailed along Freemont Cut, Salmon Bay, through the locks, into Puget Sound and then around back to Pier 55. (A friend tells me that the cruise has taken place the other way around as well). There... More

Brief 1 hour cruise. Good value if bought as part of city pass otherwise a little expensive. Better to take the ferry to the island for $8.50 round trip

We signed up for the 12:30 locks cruise as we wanted to see the sound and Lake Union. It was a warm day and we had a great ride up to the locks, and then the power went out at the locks and we had to return to the dock! We were disappointed, but the company handled it really well,... More
