Summer Views Cruise

Experience our newest voyage this summer, Argosy’s Summer Views Cruise! This 1.5-hour cruise is the perfect place to bask in golden hour as the sun begins to set. Head up to the top deck to take in that summer breeze and enjoy locally sourced beverages and bites while the captain takes you on a surprise route around Puget Sound and shares their favorite landmarks. This cruise is unique in that narration will be minimal so that you can socialize and take in the sights — like breathtaking views of the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Mountains. 

Your experience includes:

  • 1.5-hour cruise around Elliott Bay, Alki Point, and into Puget Sound during golden hour
  • Full-service bar on board with cocktails, local wine and beer, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks available for purchase
  • Panoramic and up-close views of the Seattle skyline, shipping port
  • Sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound

What is the difference between Argosy’s Harbor Cruise and the Summer Views Cruise?

Our Harbor Cruise is a 1-hour tour offering live narration. Our Summer Views Cruise is a 1.5-hour cruise of Alki Point, Elliott Bay, and into Puget Sound at the perfect time in the evening to enjoy golden hour. There is no tour narration on the Summer Views Cruise — except a handful of must-mention moments from the captain — to allow for great conversation and a relaxed vibe.

Aside from the start of the beautiful Seattle sunset, you’ll cruise out into Elliott Bay from Argosy, passing the Seattle waterfront, Harbor Island, Alki Point, and into Puget Sound where you can see nearby Bainbridge Island. You’ll take in views of the Olympic Mountains and the city skyline, including an incredible look back at the Space Needle.
