This was a very interesting experience. I had never seen how the locks worked so I was very intent on watching this. The rest of the tour around Seattle was also very nice.
the tour guide Andrew was a virtual wealth of information and so fun! We had a marvelous time .I have lived in Seattle and last took an Argosy tour to Blake Island in the mid 70s so this was amazing to take my Canadian family out and here so many factors about the area i didn't know. I would highly recommend this tour again.
The tour of the locks in Seattle was excellent. The boat left on time and the staff members were very professional, helpful, and funny. The young woman who narrated the tour was informative, articulate, and funny. The captain provided excellent information about the locks themselves. We didn't realize that we would be transported by bus at the end of the tour back to the pier in Seattle, but everything was organized perfectly and we were back at the waterfront in less than 30 minutes.
A must do. The shorter version would not be as interesting or as thorough. The locks cruise is well worth the money. The guide was really interesting and knowledgeable.
It was a fantastic opportunity to tour the bay and get great pictures of the city - i would recommended this tour to anyone!
Probably the highlight of our 3 days in Seattle! Such a relaxing cruise with excellent narration and itinerary. So many great photo ops! Would definitely take this tour again!
The trip was spectacular and our guide and captain were both very knowledgable. What a great way to see Seattle from the water and what an experience going through the locks.
The tour was everything I expected.....well narrated and scenic. It is a good value.
The Cruise was fantastic. Highly recommend it!!
Did have some problems understanding that we only got vouchers that we needed to exchange for tickets but that was quickly address by the support crew.
We took the city tour and a water tour and enjoyed every moment. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the entire trip.
Very enjoyable, perfect weather and calm seas! Tour guide was superb!!
The day was perfect. The captain was excellent and treated us very well . After the cruise was over she gave us water and provided taxis when the bus didn't start. Much appreciated. The commentator on the boat was also excellent with very informative talk about the scenery and the locks. Good time was had by all our group of 16 people from BC.
A wonderful trip. Fabulous views. A beautiful day. Andrew was our great guide. Thank you.
We had an awesome time! We learned lots about the area and would definitely recommend it!!
Enjoyed the adventure..... did not like the traffic from pier 56 to Union Lake, because that put the cruise on delay and felt rushed getting aboard... after leaving dock enjoyed very much... informative and the speed was very good for the picture taking... food and drink on board was a delight.... locks very interesting and saved me a boat load of money ...no Panama cruise now for my wife... :
We really enjoyed every part of it. I would like to take the same trip next year but the later cruise so we can watch the fireworks. The Captain and crew were exceptional.
I would do this again. It was a relaxing tour with experiences you can only get by traveling on water. You get to see a lot of Seattle and it's neighborhoods via the lake, and then a spectacular view of downtown when you head back to the pier.
We were very happy with this tour. The Captain and tour guide were very nice and informative. Very nice and pleasant tour. Highly recommend it.
