Many tourists to Seattle choose for a beautiful cruise or boat trip to see the sights. Seattle is a watery city, located on the Puget Sound’s beaches, with Lake Union in the heart of the city and lengthy Lake Washington on the east side. The Lake Washington Ship Canal runs between the Sound and the lakes, allowing boats to sail between them. Boating and other forms of water recreation are popular pastimes in the area.
It’s a nice and peaceful choice to take in the sights and landscapes of Seattle from the ocean. Here are some of my favourite Seattle scenic cruises and boat tours.
Argosy Cruises Is A Cruise Line Based In The United Kingdom.
Argosy Cruises offers picturesque cruises on a regular basis from Pier 55 (for Puget Sound tours), Lake Union, and Kirkland (for Lake Washington tours). The duration of these narrated sightseeing trips ranges from one to five hours. The Puget Sound’s longest boat trips travel to Blake Island, either for a salmon dinner and Native-themed entertainment at Tillicum Village, or for one of three environmental experiences. The Christmas Ship Festival, dinner and brunch cruises, and mystery dinners are just a few of the seasonal and special event cruises offered by Argosy Cruises.
Cruises On The Waterways
The Seattle scenic cruises offered by Waterways mix breathtaking scenery with delectable cuisine.
