The Seattle Central Waterfront has been Argosy's main home since 1949, but with a fleet of ships comes the need for more place to park them! And the AGC Marina's central Seattle location in South Lake Union is a great spot.
Situated on Westlake Avenue North (in between Kenmore Air's Lake Union Terminal and the 10-story Associated General Contractor's (AGC) high-rise, both on Westlake Avenue North, vessels leaving or arriving the AGC Marina have excellent views of the Space Needle and the Seattle skyline, industrial Gas Works Park, and many of Seattle's floating home communities.
The marina lies adjacent to the 6.2 mile/10 kilometer Cheshiahud Loop that encircles Lake Union, and just a short stroll south to South Lake Union Park, the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), and the Center for Wooden Boats. The Space Needle and Seattle Center are only a 20-minute walk to the southwest.
With our Lake Union Cruise and our new ONE-WAY Locks Cruise, our guests can make a day of it in the South Lake Union neighborhood by strolling though the nearby parks, exploring local attractions like MOHAI and the Space Needle, or enjoy any number of the area's excellent restaurants, such as Serious Pie, Cactus, or Brave Horse Tavern. See the map above for locations to many fun and tasty nearby spots.
Getting to the marina by car? You can get day-of-cruise $4 parking vouchers (with validation from Argosy crewmembers when you sail and park in the lot adjacent to the AGC Marina. Metered parking is also available on both sides of Westlake Avenue North.
For the transit-inclined, King County Metro Route 40 has a stop next to the AGC Marina and stops every 15 minutes. Nearby South Lake Union Streetcar stops can take riders into north Downtown Seattle, and several Pronto Cycle Share Stations are also located nearby.
