A pleasant way to spend a few hours
, Sep 2021
Good option for something fun without a 4-hour time commitment. Expect A LOT of kids running around without supervision, though. We enjoyed the beautiful Seattle skyline and fun facts about the waterfront - and got a glimpse of Mt Rainier in the distance. The kids were distracting our tour guide so his commentary wasn't the best, but it was a gorgeous day and overall a good experience.
Provides a perfect overview of Seattle

I had fun
, Sep 2021
I got see things that I haven’t seen since I have been here. I didn’t enjoy waiting on the movable dock. I don’t have good balance and I was nervous about it. The dock we had to wait on before we got on the boat. That is what I am talking about. But I enjoyed everything else about the experience. I always enjoy sightseeing on boats. I always feel relax on them. Overall I had fun!
Loved It

The tour was great. The guide was knowledgeable and the views were amazing. You can move around the cruise freely too. An hour was just the right amount of time on the boat.
Must do for first timers
