The Seattle Harbor Cruise was excellent. The weather was fantastic...sunny and warm. The trip was well organized and the narrator was awesome. The price was very reasonable. My wife and I took the light rail to downtown Seattle from the Tukwila station to avoid having to deal with parking...that was a great decision. All in all a great day. Thank you

My friend and I loved the harbor cruise. The only bad thing about it was the horrible weather, but the crew and tour guide made the trip fun and full of information and corny jokeslove corny jokes to where the bad weather didn't seem like it was such a big deal after all. It was freezing out with the rain and all but the boat was heated and warm top to bottom. I enjoyed the fact they also served drinks like hot apple cider so we could have some while sitting outside of the boat in the cold if we wanted towhich we did. It was nice relaxing and getting away from all the hustle and bustle of the noisy city.

This is a great way to get an overall feel for the Seattle waterfront and city. The narrator on board was outstanding. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about all things Seattle. The boat has a great bar on board with a wide selection of craft beers on tap as well as popcorn etc We very much enjoyed the trip and the narration and recommend it to all.

Great way to start out a visit in Seattle! Saw beautiful views, learned about the area, sunshine on my face, breeze in my hair, beer in my hand. Crew was very friendly, welcoming and sincere. Kevin, our captain, was sailing out for his last trip because he had to get back to teaching. And Jacob, our guide, was a wealth of information and amusing anecdotes. Beer was a bit pricey but still enjoyed it! One hour was just right.

Good tour - gives you a look at Seattle from the water. Excellent narration during the hour cruising in the bay.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This one hour tour was very nice. The guide who spoke as we traveled was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of history of the area. This is exactly what it says, a harbour cruise only, so the boat hugged the harbour, and did not go out too far into the water. The boat was very comfortable and was able to accomodate the large group, and you could easily sit inside or outside.
