As we finally transition into Fall, let’s go over the highlights of Argosy Cruises’ amazing summer! This season blew us out of the water, and we are so glad to have cruised with thousands of you near and far. We've met amazing people from all over the world, and we are more than happy to be one of the stops on everyone's itinerary.
What else made the season better? The comeback of past events and new additions to our guest experience.
Starting off with what's new, our summer campaign of Booze and Views! We wanted to highlight the great businesses we work with and carry in terms of liquor and beverages. Community is an important aspect to us and staying local when possible is our goal. To execute this, we created Booze & Views, a happy hour focused campaign on the last two sailing times of our Harbor cruise. Of course, happy hour is better with a view of the water and the sunset! We featured drinks from Elliott Bay Brewing, Copperworks Distilling, Pike Brewing, and Fremont Mischief Distillery every week of the summer. Wondering what the “crowd favorite” from the happy hour selection was?
*cue drumroll* That would be our Golden Hour cocktail! The ingredients being Northwest Small Batch Gin from Copperworks Distilling mixed with a medley of grapefruit, cranberry, and orange juice.
Aside from Booze & Views: what was this summer's best seller cocktail?
*cue the fireworks* Our delicious Huckleberry Lemonade cocktail! This truly was the drink of the season. We could barely keep the Huckleberry Vodka on the shelf!

What else was new this season? Our new addition to the guest experience – our Augmented Reality Snapchat lenses ! With ready to scan QR Codes throughout the Pier 55 courtyard and onboard the Harbor Cruise boats, you’ll be able to experience a fun, orange Kraken and Orcas in the Bay. Not only does this add to the fun and adventure of your trip, but now you can start the fun while in line and continue it onboard.
New is always great but continuing with the past is just as important. You asked and we answered to bring back the loved Seafair Blue Angels Cruise! What better way to see these talented pilots zoom through the sky than from the water? This special event cruise SOLD OUT and boy did we see some amazing photos. Coincident the Topgun Maverick movie came out around the same time? I think not!

This summer really showed that we came back better than ever, but it wouldn’t be any of this without all the people who board our boats and the amazing crew we have on and off the shore. Thank you to those visiting out of state, country, city and to those who live IN Seattle. Excuse us as we feel a WAAVE of emotions.
Let's have a great fall!
