This isn't just a cruise -- it's a four-hour adventure that begins when you climb aboard the Argosy, a climate-controlled 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

This was our first time to Seattle and we thoroughly enjoyed the Argosy Locks Cruise. Fortunately we sailed on a clear day and were able to see all the sights. Our tour guide, Matthew, seemed extremely knowledgable and personable.
The cruise provided a breathtaking view of Elliott Bay and the Seattle skyline, along with lots of information about the surrounding bodies of water, the area, the history of Seattle and Seattle life,as well as some great restaurant recommendations.
We had a great time!!
Since 1963, locals and visitors alike have enjoyed Argosy’s 2½-hour Locks Tour. The cruise connects the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of Lake Union via the Hiram Chittenden Locks. Enjoy live narration of Seattle’s history, while viewing the historic waterfront. View the spectacular city skyline one of the world’s largest shipping terminals, the majestic Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges and the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat community. The overland loop is connected via Gray Line of Seattle motor coach. Snacks and beverages are available for purchase on board.
