I’ve lived in Bellevue for 23 years and never took this cruise. We had friends in town and chose this event as a way of seeing a bit of Seattle. It was excellent, informative and fun! Best guide ever - made it even more memorable.

I was taken on this short cruise from Lake Union to Lake Washington on Argosy Cruises as a gift. I enjoyed the trip very much. We had a good talk about what we were seeing and the accommodations on the boat were very good.

This a part of the CityPASS ticket that we bought when we visited Seattle. Nothing overly exciting to say, the staff are very accommodating.

The narrator on the locks tour was incredibly knowledgeable about the attractions. Even though it was raining slightly outside, we truly enjoyed seeing more of Seattle and learning about the city. It's was beautiful! Thank you!

this attraction can not be beat. Fun for all but it really helps when the weather is nice. Loved going through the locks! Would do it again.

Thanks for cruising with us! We too wish the rain and clouds would disappear some days, but then it wouldn't be Seattle. Can't wait to have you aboard again when the sun is out.

The narrator was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Our two 11 year olds and 9 year olds enjoyed the trip as well. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, even locals.

This trip was fulfilled with great experience, seeing the City view, Hurricane ridge and Rainir mountain at the same time!

You can also check the timings online in advance to plan accordingly. Exchanging the coupon with ticket is the best way to ensure the timing.
