Seattle CityPASS: Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour

After visiting the Pike Place Market, I walked down southwest to Pier 55 to avail my cruise run by Argosy Cruises. It was part of the Seattle CityPASS, which I bought online for $100 (as of December 2019).

If you will purchase two 5x7 boarding photos, you will get the special CityPASS rate of $15. I bought them and gave one to my grandparents.

» My Harbor Cruise Tour Experience «

I presented my mobile ticket in person at the ticket booth located at Pier 55. I selected the 12:05 pm departure time and got my boarding pass afterwards.


The departure times last December 2019 were 12:05 pm1:25 pm and 2:45 pm.

Note: Please arrive at least 1 hour prior the departure time to give ample time for the ticket and boarding procedures. The best time to visit is the first tour of the day because it's usually the least crowded based on my experience.



As I explore the Elliot Bay and Seattle harbour, I enjoyed the spectacular views of mountain ranges, Space Needle and many interesting sites.
