It was excellent. Lots of info and everyone enjoyed themselves. Those that wanted to get out of the wind and weather could do so down below and still hear and see everything.

We upgraded the city pass to do the longer locks cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it! Great views of the city and house boats in Union Lake. Today we got to see Mt Ranier clearly!

If you can't fit in everything you want to do, this is the event to omit. The views from the vessel are lovely, but they are not spectacular. Seating is a little haphazard and not particularly comfortable. The white wine was absolutely undrinkable, but the...More

We took the Harbor Tour with our family. It was a great way to learn about the city and see the shipping industry first hand. Highly recommend it!
