This isn't just a cruise -- it's a four-hour adventure that begins when you climb aboard the Argosy, a comfortable ship featuring two cash bars. Soak up the beautiful coastal scenery as the narrated jaunt takes you from Puget Sound to Blake Island. Once docked at the island, you'll disembark to enjoy an appetizer of clams and nectar, then visit the Tillicum Village longhouse for a buffet meal including salmon baked on cedar planks in the traditional Northwest Coast native style. At the end of the meal, enjoy a spellbinding performance highlighting the myth, magic and dances of the native Salish people, complete with high-tech effects. You'll even have a chance to explore the island a bit before boarding for the return cruise. Learn More

We enjoyed the cruise very much. There was room for the kids to play in the warm indoor area inside the boat, the cruise had fun activities AND Santa. The kids were thrilled. They also received goody bags with holiday crafts which they enjoyed doing.
The Argosy Christmas Ship festival is a holiday celebration that has been a Northwest tradition for 61 years. Its main purpose is to bring communities together to celebrate the holiday season. From our flotilla of ships to the crowds of people who gather onshore, this celebration is one of the gems of the holiday season.
Each night, the Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities, over 45 in total.
On shore, thousands of people gather around roaring bonfires anticipating the arrival of the Christmas Ship. Join Argosy on board one of the Christmas Ship Parade Boats that follow the lead Christmas Ship.
Parade Boats, or follow boats to the Christmas Ship, do just that. They follow the Christmas Ship but do not have the choir on board. Many boats make up the parade ship fleet, including many of Argosy’s own ships as well as privately owned boats from nearby marinas.
Parade Ships are fully enclosed with outside areas, restrooms, and a cash bar. Guests also have the option of pre-purchasing boxed meals. On board activities include a ‘Ho-Ho-Ho’ contest, sing-a-longs, and a kids’ activity area. A special holiday character will also be on board. All parade ships position themselves alongside the Christmas Ship to enjoy the outstanding choral performances.
