Argosy Cruises sightseeing tours and outdoor adventures on Blake Island are packed with the perfect amount of fun, wonder, and adventure for riders of all ages.
Take a trip around Elliott Bay on the 1-hr Harbor Cruise for neat facts like why the Space Needle resembles a UFO and up-close views of longshoremen playing Tetris with shipping containers. Plus, see the expansive skyline and buildings that reach almost 1,000 ft.
The Locks Cruise is a favorite among locals and the only boat tour that takes passengers through the Ballard Locks! This engineering marvel acts like a boat elevator, raising and lowering the water level to match the tides and transport boats between Lake Union and Puget Sound. You will also see the magic of “Tugboat Alley,” boats from Deadliest Catch, seaplanes, and even spot some buoy-resting sea lions.
Head over to Blake Island and choose a cultural or nature tour.
If getting out in nature is your family’s activity of choice, then hop on the Blake Island Fast Ferry and explore the paradise that is Blake Island State Park. Just a quick 27-minute ride from the Seattle Waterfront, the fast ferry is your connection to miles of beaches, trails, and activities. We are offering tandem kayak rentals & SUPs, guided nature walks, cultural presentations, and more! If you need to refuel, the Longhouse Café has lunch, snacks, and treats, and fire table rentals are available to end the adventure with s’mores and a bit of relaxation. Parents, Happy Hour is most definitely a thing on Blake Island!
