  • My husband and I did the 1 hour cruise of the waterfront. Very informational and relaxing. The views of the city were outstanding.  more »
  • Tour and crew are great. Rain and snow limited visibility, so probably better to take tour during summer months.  more »

  • We didn't actually get to go on our paid cruise. My sister is handicapped and I mentioned it upon booking. I called when we got stuck in our cab in traffic. I was able to go to the loading along with another person not with our party who was waiting for their late party as well. Although my sister was going as quick as possible using a cane was 100 feet from the dock, they refused to wait for her to get loaded. We were refused a refund also (though to be fair I did see they do post no refunds). I guess if you are able to run to the dock, they'll wait. If you are disabled, too bad for you. I realize that traffic is out of their control, but the fact that they waited for those who could run to the dock and refused to wait for my disabled sister was upsetting. I'm out $270+ dollars and my sister felt upset because she was unable to run like others who were late due to traffic just plain sucks.
  • Harbour cruise was pleasant. You get to see the skyline from a different angle, along with some trivia about the city. Tour guide was sufficiently entertaining. It's advantageous to be ahead in line so you get your pick of the seating real estate when boarding.
  • We went on the harbor tour yesterday, and I've gotta say I was really underwhelmed. The crew was friendly, but there was some false information shared by the narrator regarding Alaska's dependency and seclusion. I was born and raised there, as were both of my companions. Specifically, the narrator (Lorenzo, I think) was describing some container ships and barges and went on to tell the guests that Alaska is entirely cut off from the rest of the US and relies on the barges 100% for all supplies, and then he followed it up but saying that Alaskan cities completely shut down during the winter. Alaska does rely on barges a lot, but there are also trucking companies and cargo planes that all work together to provide products from elsewhere. Alaskan cities do not shut down during the winter. Some shops are seasonal, sure, but aside from that not much tends to change. When we commented that he was incorrect, rather than ask for our input or correct himself, he argued with us, stating that he had lived in Juneau for 4 years as though that's the only basis for his information that was necessary. Juneau is almost completely cut off from not only the US but also the rest of the state, and is not a good basis for information about the rest of Alaska at all. The vast majority of the cities and towns in the state are fully operational year round. The tour itself and the rest of the commentary was pretty okay, if a bit boring, but I really didn't appreciate false information being shared, and then being argued with about the place I lived for 23 years to top it off was really rude and unnecessary. I will not be recommending your harbor tour to others. I would recommend however, that you have your guides do some actual research, especially when talking about a place whose capital is nowhere near the area where most people actually live and visit regularly (we're closer to Juneau here in Washington than Anchorage).
  • This was a part of the city pass! It was a fantastic hour long cruise and very informative with a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline. Staff was awesome.
  • No complaints. It is a harbor cruise - nothing special or too exciting. Had an excellent guide with good diction. Ended up having to go inside becasue of rainy and cold weather - but still enjoyed the trip. Good snack and beverage selections.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
