Loved going on this tour more than I expected I would. The base tour is about 1 hour long and tours the Elliot bay area. Our tour guide George, was truly excellent, and it was clear that he was knowledgeable and enjoyed his job. Saw some wildlife and got a history of the city. Highly recommend.

Really friendly staff! Our guide was hilarious and very informative about Seattle's history and culture! We took the afternoon cruise which didn't come with a meal, but they have a bar, where you can order drinks and snacks. Some of the boat themed drinks were really good. Not too expensive either. There was plenty of seating above and below deck, so don't worry about weather. Also, there were a lot of very clean and well stocked bathrooms on board. We bought the Seattle City Pass that included the cruise. I would highly recommend looking into getting it, if you're visiting Seattle. Good luck!

I've lived in Olympia area for over 20 years and done lots of activities involving native american culture. This experience was definitely one of my favorites. The weather was perfect which played a big role into the overall experience. The one negative was during the lunch buffet we could not get drinks including water refills. We asked no less than 4 employees and were told by all of them that someone would take our drink order but no one ever did. We ended up sharing water with another table that had only a few people. Even still I'm rating this 5 stars.

I have to share this review, as I rarely am willing to give a company a 1-star review. But, I advise everyone think twice before giving this company any of your money. Here is my story: My wife booked us a trip on the Argosy Cruise leaving from the Lake Union boathouse for the famous "Christmas Ships" trip and wanted it to be somewhat of a surprise for everyone. Shortly after she booked this trip for our family, we found out she was pregnant(!). If you know anything about being pregnancy- apparently your brain and memory don't really work as normal (or so I've heard). Well, you might be able to guess where I'm going with this... she had the time mixed up for the departure. So, we arrive (what we thought was early) for a ship that we thought would be leaving the harbor at 5:30, rather a ship than 4:30... We were at the boat dock at 5:15. When we got there, the ship was still in the harbor and they hadn't left yet (they still had the boarding platform down and the ship was still tied down) So we were thinking all was good at this point (still didn't know we were late) and ready to get on the boat... All 7 of us! Actually, NO. Instead, the young men who were launching the boat refused to let us on the ship, claiming that they were on a tight schedule and we should have arrived earlier.... Instead they claim that we call the office (did I mention it was Sunday night?) and try to find a way to get help. So, here we were standing in the freezing cold on a beautiful night in Seattle on the dock as we watched our ship, the one that we were all REALLY looking forward to, leave the dock. There goes our Christmas gift... It really was a super sad situation. Now, I figured that someone with as good of a reputation as Argosy would have no problem either refunding our money, or finding a way to repurpose our money. So I tried calling them over the course of the next week. And calling them. And calling them. And calling them etc. Eventually, I spoke with the VP of sales and marketing, who seemed nice, but still to this day (over 2 month later) have not had any luck AT ALL with receiving any sort of compensation or refund!! Mind you, we paid almost $500 for this trip, and never received a SINGLE cent back (full disclosure: they told me that they "comp up" us for the food THAT WE PAID FOR from our initial missed trip if we booked another trip!!?). I asked them if they would be able to honor some of my money by finding a way to get half off another round of tickets (pay for 3 tickets and get 6), but they vehemently disagreed with this, as they stated that this was against their policy. All of this stems from their policies and procedures, which they send you in an email, that states there are absolutely no refunds for this type of situation. (Mind you this is an email that I NEVER personally received until after the fact, as my pregnant wife was the one to set this up in the first place...) Shame on you Argosy Cruise. What a terrible way to do business. I still can't believe that such a big and reputable company would operate this way. Not only will I personally NEVER do any further business with them, but I will also GLADLY share this experience with anyone willing to listen!!

Awesome cruise of the 60 minutes of the waters directly outside downtown Seattle. Gave great perspective of the seattle portion of the "salish seas" and of the islands and ships and port in the area. Saw the ferries run across, got to run right up against some big ships and that was cool. The ride was nice. The only other larger boat I had been on at the time was the Catalina jet ferry that goes to Avalon. Nice bar / bathroom. Nice information / enthusiasm by the tour narrator / MC. Going on the deck was fabulous. Probably the best part.

Great experience, they offer 3 tours to choose. The one on the bay let you to have a different view of the many buildings on the city, docks and parks with a good dose of the history of the city from the narration. They also answer any questions. Confortable seats inside. Also offer drinks and food.

My fiance and I took this harbor cruise on our 1 year anniversary together. 5 years later, we took it again for our 6th year. We've decided that we will take it every 5 years together! We love it and it's so special to us, we may even get married on it! The only thing I wish was improved was that I could hear the guide better when I'm on the lower deck. See you in 5 years!

This cruise is A great experience and the tour guide on board was hilarious with tons of puns which was awesome! She was very informative and gives you a lot of amazing facts that you wouldn't have known if you didn't take this cruise. The sights of Seattle while on the water is amazing while you can sip on a beer

We did the harbor tour and really enjoyed it. There is an interesting running commentary... we had an enthusiastic and knowledgeable young lady who did a great job. Seeing the city from the water is a great way to get to know it from a different aspect, and let's face it, Seattle is a terrific city!

Very nice ride, good service, and amazing narration. Reasonable prices for such an amazing experience and magnificent views. The only problem would be that as you enter the boat, they snap a quick photo of you. This is fine, but then they try to charge you 15 dollars for it , and are very desperate in advertising it. Otherwise, the experience was exciting, and I would definitely recommend it for anybody who appreciates seeing incredible views, or as a quick family excursion.

Awesome tour, Greta if you get it with the city pass. Highly recommend the city pass because you will save a lot of money in the long run. This tour was an hour long, and we saw so many sweet views from downtown, the industry ship yard! The guide had so many great comments and interesting facts of the city. Have done many bay tours around the west coast, and this was in my top 3 favorites!

Narrator was interesting when you could hear him over the drone of the boat's engines. Really is just a quick tour along the shoreline of the piers. The container portion of the tour was way more informative than expected. Kind of a must do if visiting Seattle for the first time just to see the city from the water.

Took the 1 hour harbour cruise and loved it. Especially loved that drinks can be ordered and received at your seat so you don't miss any of the views waiting at the bar for a drink. Sights were great and the guide gave a lot of tidbits and history. Will definitely go again.

My daughter was a little scared to board the ship. The staff member at the entrance was patient, friendly, and reassuring when she asked if it was safe. Then at the bar I realized I was missing my debit card. Coco at the bar helped me trace where it might be, and called the store on shore to confirm that it was there. The tour guide was knowledgeable and fun, the ship was clean and comfortable, and seeing Seattle from the water was beautiful!
