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.

The views from the water were gorgeous. It was listed as a sunset cruise, but the sun didn't set while on the cruise. Maybe should have been just a bit later; however, we still saw an amazing sunset as we were on the waterfront area after the cruise.

Nice views on the water and good commentary make this harbor cruise very enjoyable. A bit expensive for the hour long cruise but fun.

We had a great harbor cruise on a rare sunny day in Seattle. Lots to see and the staff was both informative and helpful. We could even see My Rainier standing tall above the city. We will definitely go again.

Great way to spend and hour and see the harbor and hear about the area. I was happy to see harbor seals in the water near some fishing boats. The ride is only an hour.
