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.

This trip excursion was super awesome. It was a bit chilly on deck considering it’s mid November but the guide was super knowledgeable and engaging. I would def recommend others to do this if they haven’t already. They also had 2 levels of indoor seating if you want to sit/take a break from the outdoors. We were a sold out tour and there was plenty of room to walk/move around the boat to grab pictures etc
This cruise was great. Great guide who was full of interesting facts, and gave a good tour of the docks. I learned a lot about the shipping and fishing industries in addition to Seattle history. Definitely go as part of the Seattle City pass or on its own - either way it's worth it. (Probably better on sunny days than on rainy ones, but we went while it was raining and stayed on the inside of the ship. You could still see plenty out of the windows, and it was very relaxing)
My family had always heard amazing things about doing a live-narrated Argosy boat tour so we finally decided to get together for a cruise from downtown waterfront, through the Ballard locks, and around Lake Union (complete with houseboats and float planes!). While on board, we found out that Argosy also does private charters for weddings and corporate parties. We've bee looking for a place to move our company holiday party to, and after calling their booking department, we got an AMAZING deal and will be doing our annual casino party on Elliot Bay this year...the team is so excited and everyone cannot wait. *If you're entertaining guests in town and you are deciding between the Ducks boat tour and the Argosy, choose this one. We went on both an only on Argosy can you get up and move around, get a drink at the bar or a sandwich, and (most importantly) use a clean restroom.
This will be one of those things that I will do just because. I've been on the Argosy Cruise - Seattle Waterfront twice and I've loved it. you get to take a nice trip on the water and see the city! The views are amazing (if it isn't cloudy) and the tour guides are knowledgeable about the area. There were two different boats that I went on. . .For the first one, the best eat is outside (there should be rows of benches that visitors can sit on, but the best of the best one is in the very back. I only say this because when the boat is because you can take beautiful panoramas. For the second one, there is stairs that you can take to get to a space at the very back. A big plus for this one is that you will not get all that wind constantly hitting your face. If you're in the Seattle area and have time to go on this tour, DO IT!!! We took advantage of the cityPASS for both cruises.
Had a great time on the locks cruise. It was well paced, and the narration by the crew was great (and accurate!). Definitely pricey, but a cool experience to be able to go through the locks. I can't speak for the bus ride back to the dock as we parked our car near the end of the cruise
