See some of Seattle’s most famous landmarks from the water during this guided harbor cruise that has been running since 1949. Hop aboard, and head to either the lower deck or upper sun deck to take in stunning views of Mt. Rainier, the Space Needle, and the Seattle Great Wheel. With an easy-to-find meeting spot and commentary throughout the cruise, you’re sure to have a stress-free time.
What to Expect

Meet for this Seattle harbor cruise on Pier 55 near the waterfront. Check in, board your boat, and head to one of the two main areas—the enclosed lower deck or the open upper sundeck.

As your boat glides out onto the water, listen to the guided commentary. Hear historical and other interesting facts about the Space Needle, the Seattle Great Wheel, and the nearby Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, as well as the city’s historic waterfront. You can even catch sight of Mt. Rainer as you cruise, and get an insider’s look at one of the world’s largest shipping terminals.

If you’re thirsty or hungry along the way, you can get a drink or something to eat on the boat (own expense).

Your tour ends back at Pier 55, where you get off the boat and can explore more of what you saw from the water.

Thanks for cruising with us! It's been a couple of years, why not come back and hang with us on the water again soon?! The Lake Union Historical cruise is a big fav.

Loved it

This was perfect! The view of the city is great from the boat. The narration was very informative about the city and the surrounding area / buildings. The boat was clean and had plenty of seating. I would do it again.

Call them, to make sure you get it. Also ask about the city pass type if you are there for a couple days. Due to the price you can have more for your money.
