The Argosy Seattle Locks Cruise really surprised me. I thought it would be a long and tedious trip with a baby and toddler in tow. It wasn't! The staff made it fun and informative, and never underestimate the power of being on a boat. My 3 year old was thrilled to be on the water, but passing through the locks was by far the highlight of the trip for him. He pushed his way to the side of the boat to watch the water drop and the gates open. It was cold and rainy on the day we took our tour, but honestly it was better than going on a warm, sunny day. Why? A whole lot less people and more room to roam on the boat.

My daughters high school rented the Argosy for their Senior Cruise. My daughter is still talking about it. You get to see the sound, eat, drink, dance! A great way to make wonderful memories! They had it decorated, the staff was friendly and they worked well with a boat full of teenagers for hours. A greaet experience!
My husband and I went on one of the brunch cruises. It was great, they had a huge selection of food, and the food was great. Some of the food is actually bought locally. And their docking area is easy to find, it's really close to the Seattle Aquarium and Pike's Place Market.
