We had an awesome experience in this Argosy Harbour Cruise. We were able to see Seattle’s main attraction from the cruise and got a very much informative session from the guides in the cruise and there was a small restaurant as well in the cruise for refreshment. Totally an awesome trip.

Nice intro to Seattle
Maura_K

The tour guide was so knowledgeable and she gave lots of info about various spots in the Seattle Harbor. Learned just enough to find it entertaining and not overwhelming. Boat hugs the shore up past The Needle and then loops around and into the working port. Talk about feeling insignificantly small!!! I have never seen a working port up close so this was pretty cool. We took the 2:45 cruise
