Seattle is full of cultural experiences and one of them is the Argosy Cruises that give you a ride to the Tillicum Village. This is a cruise ride around the Hudson bay is calming and the stuff of Hollywood movies with their excellent ships and helpful staff and the view of the beautiful sea. The food served on board is a treat not just for the pallet but for the eyes too because it is cooked as per American Indian traditions in a fire right in front of your eyes.
The cruises have a play area for children, which is a toy museum and you can be assured of engaging your kids for a long period of time while you get some quite time. Halfway along the ride there is a short stop at the Tillicum village where you get to experience the way of life of a traditional American Indian tribe. There is a curio and gift shop too. If you're one for camping, they have clean camping grounds too and a wood of trees and is open most months of the year.
It's a treat for half a day and you get to know more about the local culture. The dress code for the cruise is casuals during the day and business casuals or classy during the evening cruises. Comfortable footwear is recommended because the deck area and ship in general are floating on the water so there is a danger of injury. Wheelchairs and service pets are allowed on board. Do plan ahead for camping on the island to make it a longer adventure.

Argosy Cruises Reviews & Ratings
The stories are the best part of the cruise. Our host told many stories of the local area, many of which I have never heard before. And, I have taken this cruise before! There's always something new to learn and seeing it while cruising on the ocean is one of the best ways to hear a new Tale. They do have drinks and snacks on board, but I would rather bring my own refreshments that I get from Pike Place Market nearby. If you park near the cruises in the summer you might be able to catch a free shuttle bus hosted by the parking companies. These will take you around the downtown area at no charge so you can stay parked for the day.
This cruise around the harbour was absolutely stunning. We had spectacular weather and we could even see the mountain in the distance. The sailing was extremely smooth and safe. The stories of the surrounding area were fun and interesting. The staff we very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Seattle.
Had such a wonderful time on the 1 hour Elliot Bay tour that we booked the 2 hour locks cruise the next day. Great captains and tour guides. Really enjoyed the open air of the boat. It was a little stressful to get seats but just plan to be there super early to get in line if that is really important to you. We will definitely go again and highly recommend!
Did this as part of the City Pass. I was thinking this might be what I liked the least, but it was by far the best part of the City Pass. I went on the first harbor tour of the morning because that's what was recommended to be the least crowded. We arrived just a few minutes before departure, but the staff was friendly about getting us on. You take a photo with your group before boarding that is developed and ready for you when you get off ($20 for two 5x7). The person on the mic was very informative and entertaining. When leaving, we saw the next boat boarding up and it was crowded. So go on the first one for best views!
This was very cool. The staff were all super nice and knowledgeable. The tour was very informative. Bring a jacket as it does get cold. And my suggestion is that you go to the 5:25pm cruise if you go during the summer months. The light is really beautiful. You'll get some good pictures.
