INTRODUCTION

This is an enjoyable two hour cruise on Lake Union and Lake Washington. It departs from Argosy's docks on South Lake Union. Argosy has been offering this cruise for many years.  I have been on it several times.  This is an interesting way to learn about Seattle's life around its two main lakes.  This is a narrated tour and your guide will explain what you are seeing and the history behind it. Some of the highlights of the tour include:

Highlights include:

 For photographers,  you can have a great time shooting excellent views of Seattle's waterfront activities and its lovely homes that look out on the two lakes. 

 

Argosy Lakes Cruise Tour Boat

Argosy Cruises Champagne Lady

 

The cruise boat "Champagne Lady" is comfortable and can easily accomodate 50 guests.  You can sit inside on the main deck and enjoy the views without dealing with wind.  You can also venture up to the upper deck and either sit or stand to see the tour in the open.  Photographers will want to be on the upper deck so that they aren't shooting through glass. A portion of the upper deck is under shade.

 

RECOMMENDATION

If you are visiting Seattle for at least two days, you should consider taking this tour. We highly recommend this tour of Seattle's lakefront activities and attractions.  You see a number of the Seattle's beautiful places.
