It was a beautiful day for a cruise and Argosy was the perfect cruise excursion for that day! The staff were very nice and helpful to everyone aboard. The tour guide, Jeremy, was very informative and funny. A great experience to be had and I would recommend this as one of the excursions to do while in Seattle, especially if the weather is spectacular!

A beautiful day aboard your vessel. Staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. Commentator’s knowledge of the area was excellent. As a former Maersk Sea-Land employee, the tour of the container terminal was an unexpected treat!

I was visiting my son in Seattle I live in California and I had choose to do a boat tour my son was reluctant to go but he went anyway boat was nice but we called ahead of time to find out if we can bring any outside drinks or food and the operator worked for Expedia cause that who we book our trip through attempted x3 to call argosy with no success so we couldn’t get our question answered so we stop at Starbucks and got coffee …we were told at the gate as we were boarding no outside food or drinks allowed so we left our drinks at the gate we didn’t get to drink any of our coffee but that was ok if they had of answered the phone we could have known that ahead of time and we would of never stop at Starbucks before boarding boat tour. Second issue once boat tour was over we got off boat immediately my son notice he forgot his keys on the boat he ask the blonde guy at front gate (who worked there) could he go back on boat and grab his keys off the boat the argrosy employee acted as though he was trying to take the next boat tour for free and we had just paid for a tour and had completed our tour and my son just wanted to grab his car keys he had a tracker on his keys and could see from his iPhone that his car keys was still on the boat he then asked the supervisor at Argrosy at that time if someone their employee could grab his car key off the boat my son told them exactly where he left the keys at on the boat the guy came back right away and he said the keys was not on the boat my son insisted they were the supervisor would not let him go back on boat to get his car keys and kept insisting my son was trying to ride the boat for free( because he was a black man ) after being persistent and refusing to leave argrosy without his car keys the argrosy employee came up from boat and said I have your car keys and gave the car keys to my son we were treated terrible as paying patronizing customers I will never ride with argrosy nor any of my family member ride their boat tours they appear to be discriminatory and we do not put up with racism in any level !
