Argosy's cruise on Puget Sound and thru the locks is a great water tour. We had a wonderful explanation of everything we passed. The boat was immaculate, the service was top class.

You can also check the timings online in advance to plan accordingly. Exchanging the coupon with ticket is the best way to ensure the timing.
