This cruise follows the shoreline and provides up-close views of the piers, ports and area attractions. There are plenty of interesting features around the bay: the Port of Seattle (one of the busiest ports in the United States), Colman Dock (the main dock of the largest ferry system in the US), and Pier 90 (home of the region's cruise ship business), Alki beach (major local summertime hangout), the Space needle, the famous Edgewater Inn, the Great Wheel and the Seattle aquarium.Last but not least, there are tremendous views of the natural beauty that surrounds Seattle. The majestic Olympic Mountains lie to the west, solitary Mount rainier to the southeast, and the inviting Cascade Range to the east.
Bring your camera to capture the memories because blue water, green trees, and interesting sights abound on this cruise.

    The narrator that was on the ship, the guy talking to us while the ship was in transit was very good and informative. Like the fact that he had a sense of humor about things

    We certainly got lucky with great weather, but the staff and tour guide were very friendly and informative about the Seattle harbor and it’s history. The city is beautiful from boat and this is a great way to get some great pictures.

    A lovely informative tour of the Seattle shoreline and Salish Sea. Sign up was easy as was check in. Ship was clean and comfortable. Thank you to the crew.

    My only complaint is that it didn't last longer but I understand other visitors want to experience the same. Other than that, it exceeded my expectations. The ship was extremely comfortable and clean. Snacks, drinks and cocktails were available for purchase. The staff was extra friendly and we got tons of great views and photos of the city, PLUS I learned a lot about Seattle history and the history of the harbor. It was well worth it! Definitely recommend!!

    I almost didnt make it. I had visited the museum of fight in the morning and then had to hurry back to make the 12.05 departure at Pier 55. Was I glad that I got on board this cruise in time. It was fun, informative and a breeze. The sun was out and there were massive cargo ships in the water. The hosts were very welcoming and the ticket office guy was very helpful. They did not try to hawk their store products or any other services on me either. The guide/MC on the boat was ok but he kept on talking even though at times everyone was more interested in selfies and there was heavy wind drowning him out. He pointed out some sights to catch later but did not elaborate much on how to do so. There was advice to catch him at the exit but he was too busy with the boat work already. Zero eye contact when wishing goodbye. All in all, it was a good experience if you have never seen Seattle from water. Do try.
