Accessibility Overview | Docks, Facilities & Vessels

Argosy Cruises has multiple facilities and each has differing levels of accessibility to those who may have limitations. Please use the information below to assist you with answering your accessibility questions, and keep in mind that day-to-day operations can change.

Wheelchairs, strollers & other wheeled devices

Our team is trained to assist guests with wheelchairs, strollers, scooters, etc. to navigate our docks, facilities, and vessels. It is company policy for a trained team member to accompany every guest in a wheelchair during boarding.

If you are in a wheelchair or scooter, or accompanying someone who is, please check in with an Argosy team member prior to boarding – we do our best to pre-board these guests.

Docks, Facilities, & Vessels Overview

Pier 55, Seattle Central Waterfront

This is our homeport and is located on Puget Sound, which means the floating dock will rise and fall with the tide, changing the angle of our boarding ramps. At low tide, the 55-ft long ramp can have a maximum slope of 20 degrees. Since this is a floating dock, it is subject to the wakes and waves that occur on the sound and can rock from time to time. There are handrails (in most places) to assist with stability.

Pier 54, Seattle Central Waterfront

This dock is also located on Puget Sound and rises and falls with the tide. At low tide, the angle of our 65-ft boarding ramp can have a maximum slope of 25 degrees. The floating dock is subject to the wakes and waves that occur in the sound and will rock from time to time.

AGC Marina, Lake Union

AGC Marina is located at the southern end of Lake Union. This is a fixed dock and the walk to the boat is flat and smooth. Lake levels do change throughout the year, and there can be a few steps down to certain vessels. These steps will never be more than 9 inches. Guests with wheelchairs would find it best to call our office to get details about boarding at AGC Marina.

Blake Island & the Tillicum Longhouse

The dock on the island is subject to the tides of Puget Sound. During low tide, the ramp can have a maximum slope of 20 degrees leading to and from the island. Once on Blake Island, there is a clam shell path that leads to the Tillicum Longhouse, and crew will be available to assist guests. Once inside the longhouse, guests will find an accessible building.

Stroller Recommendation: Blake Island is a network of unpaved trails, rocky beaches, and an authentic clamshell path. If you are bringing a stroller, we recommend using an all-terrain stroller
