Argosy Cruises - Review
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, Seattle Reviews
Highly recommend the "Seattle Locks" cruise. The website isn't clear that it started (or maybe ended if the do it backwards too) with a bus ride. It was a one-way cruise from Lake Washington, through the ship canal, to Puget Sound, ending in Elliot Bay by the starting Pier. Fantastic repetoir and you see some great stuff. Most locals probably haven't seen or don't know the facts they shared. The skyline photos alone are probably worth it for most people. If only the Olympia mountains weren't cloudy... Bring or purchase drinks; I had no idea how dry the air was, and 2 hours exposed in the breeze really dehydrates. I appreciated the ~$50 price point for 2 hours of cruising! It was advertised as 2.5 hrs, but the bus and boarding/prep to leave took 30 minutes.
We did the one hour harbor tour - it was great, informative, captain and crew were friendly. The only negative thing for me was that we sat on the left side of the boat. Everything was geared toward the right side of the boat - views of the waterfront initially. I assumed we’d turn around and I’d be able to see what they were talking about, but instead when we turned around we were near West Seattle and then the shipping boats...which were also clearly viewed from the right side of the boat. Overall it was still informative and interesting. I enjoyed being out on the water.
We did the one hour harbor cruise in the evening which does a loop around the bay. Our guide was new and did a fabulous job of providing entertaining informational tidbits. And it was nice just to be out on the water. There were good options for those who wanted to sit outside in the fresh air as well as those who wanted to be inside. They also offered snacks and drinks for sale during the cruise and the boat has restroom facilities. Recommend bringing a jacket as it can be cool and windy on the water.
The ride was great. Tour guide made the information about the tour very smooth to hear and if something unexpected happened (seals rested on a buoy), the guide added more tidbits. Overall, ride was enjoyable. Went on a nice day with a little wind. If you easily get dizzy, be aware of this
This was another trip I took right at sunset, absolutely stunning... Was really nice to see all the different attractions and the Puget Sound from this perspective. The ship had seating outside and inside, with a bar. All the necessities for a short cruise. The tour guide was quite knowledgable. Definitely a good time. Not sure about the cost, but the City Pass made this affordable for us.
