Exploring the heart of downtown Seattle is a thrilling adventure that speaks to the hearts of those with a passion for food, culture, and creativity. However, there’s nothing quite like taking to the waterways of Seattle when you’re looking to connect with the unique authenticity Seattle claims. This port city was built on watery transportation and there’s something about seeing the skyline from the vantage point of the waterfront that makes for an unforgettable experience. When you’re here and hoping to make the most of your time on Seattle’s water, be sure to book a spot with Argosy Cruises.
Historical Rides, Modern Marvels
For over 70 years, Argosy Cruises has been providing locals and visitors to Seattle with cruise opportunities that provide unsurpassed views of the Seattle skyline. Today, Argosy Cruises is still the city’s premier company for waterfront cruises. Departing from Pier 55, guests who book with Argosy have the option to truly customize their experience depending on what they want to see and how they want to experience it. Traditional sightseeing cruises typically run one hour in length and come complete with narration as you sail past stunning views of Seattle and the Puget Sound. There’s no need to worry about hunger pangs during your Argosy Cruise as sightseeing vessels include a full-service onboard bar serving up wine, beer, cocktails, and snacks upon guest request for purchase. Those looking for a more specific route or cruise subject will be thrilled with options to book a Lock cruise, historical cruise or a Lake Washington cruise. While the cost of cruising varies with the choice of route, a traditional sightseeing cruise adult ticket is $31 while a youth ticket costs $17. Children 3 and under cruise for free, making this a budget-friendly and family-friendly option when you’re visiting the Emerald City.
Argosy Cruises are also available for private and event bookings if you’re in town for a special reason. Corporate events and wedding receptions are regularly hosted onboard with the help of a knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff. If you’re looking for an excursion that goes beyond a waterfront tour, consider booking the Tillicum cruise that takes passengers to Blake Island for a day of immersive education in specifics surrounding early Northwest culture and Native American Tribes. Guests who book this excursion will also enjoy a fish meal at Blake Island before heading back to Pier 55.
