Meet for this Seattle harbor cruise on Pier 55 near the waterfront. Check in, board your boat, and head to one of the two main areas—the enclosed lower deck or the open upper sundeck.

As your boat glides out onto the water, listen to the guided commentary. Hear historical and other interesting facts about the Space Needle, the Seattle Great Wheel, and the nearby Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, as well as the city’s historic waterfront. You can even catch sight of Mt. Rainer as you cruise, and get an insider’s look at one of the world’s largest shipping terminals.

If you’re thirsty or hungry along the way, you can get a drink or something to eat on the boat (own expense).

Your tour ends back at Pier 55, where you get off the boat and can explore more of what you saw from the water.

Sit on the starboard (right) side for the best views.

Argosy runs a tight ship; clean, informative, on schedule and enjoyable. Because the Harbor Cruise (included in the CityPASS) sails a counterclockwise course around the harbor those on the right side will get a closer view of the skyline and commercial docks than those on...More

Call them, to make sure you get it. Also ask about the city pass type if you are there for a couple days. Due to the price you can have more for your money.
