Argosy Summer Views Cruise

In honor of its 75th anniversary this year, Argosy Cruises has launched a brand new Summer Views Cruise, offering a tranquil ride through the picturesque waters of Puget Sound. The cruise sets sail from Pier 54 in Downtown Seattle and offers beautiful views of the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle skyline.

This 1.5-hour cruise starts at 6:30 p.m. and is the perfect way to enjoy the sunset in Seattle. Passengers can head to the top deck to bask in the summer breeze and enjoy locally sourced beverages and bites while the captain guides the cruise around Puget Sound during golden hour and shares tidbits of the city’s history.

Argosy’s scenic route sails through Elliott Bay and past iconic landmarks like the Space Needle, Alki Point and Harbor Island, providing endless opportunities to capture stunning photos and views you can only get from the water. This cruise is unique in that narration is minimal so that passengers can socialize and take in the sights.


There is a full-service bar on board Argosy Cruises with signature cocktails, local wine and beer, and non-alcoholic beverages. The Golden Hour cocktail is a favorite, made with Copperworks Small Batch Gin, ginger liqueur, peach puree, lemon juice, and sparkling water. Snacks are available for purchase as well, like the cheese and charcuterie plate and the ever-so-popular popcorn.

The Summer Views Cruise will run all summer long (the end date in September is weather dependent), on Thursdays to Sundays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Adult tickets are $39; senior tickets are $35; and youth are $22. Tickets can be purchased online or in person at the Argosy Cruises Reservations Center. There are restrooms onboard and ADA accessibility.
