Argosy Cruises


The waters of Puget Sound offer a unique opportunity for a group retreat, company meeting or incentive trip. Conducting your event on one of fleet of vessels offered by Argosy Cruises adds a special touch to any group activity. Offering panoramic views of Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle cityscape, the Argosy fleet of comfortable, climate-controlled vessels can accommodate large and small groups.

Whether it is a celebratory reception, an afternoon team-building activity or a private business meeting, Argosy can offer custom- designed private charter trips and events tailored to meet the needs of your group. Businesses often find that the scenic setting, away from the constraints of the company conference room, can spur creativity and productivity. An Argosy cruise can also be a special post-conference addition for your convention or conference.

The newest addition to the fleet, the Salish Explorer, is launching in December 2017. Panoramic windows on the fully-enclosed main deck offer scenic views in a comfortable setting. With three decks and two full-service bars, the vessel has a versatile floor plan offering a variety of fixed and configurable seating. It can accommodate up to 240 guests seated and up to 420 reception-style.

With a capacity of 200 seated or 350 for a reception, the 115-foot Spirit of Seattle features two enclosed decks and an open sun deck. The Spirit of Seattle’s second deck even has an area for dancing. The Lady Mary offers elegance and sophistication, featuring designer carpet and rich mahogany trim with bronze accents. The Lady Mary can accommodate 140 seated guests. For a smaller company meeting or board retreat, your guests will be impressed by the Celebrations. The Celebrations offers an intimate setting, reminiscent of an exclusive private yacht, with seating for 50.

Argosy’s large fleet provides groups with a wide variety of options and maximum flexibility for any type of gathering. Your group can choose one of Argosy’s preferred caterers or you can select your own caterer. A variety of bar and refreshment packages featuring local products are available. For entertainment requests, the Argosy staff can connect you with their entertainment partners who can offer music, games and specialized activities.

An excursion to the Tillicum event space on Blake Island will create a memorable group activity. Located between Vashon Island and Bainbridge Island, Blake Island is a 475-acre state park. Argosy’s Blake Island excursion can include a Northwest-inspired meal or a Native American story-telling show and stage performance. Blake Island also offers plenty of space for team building activities or leisurely exploration of the island’s lush forest trails and wide-open beaches.

For more than 60 years, Argosy Cruises has been plying the waters of Puget Sound, Lake Union and Lake Washington giving groups a quintessential Seattle experience. Spectacular views in a unique setting will provide just the right backdrop for a group event. An Argosy cruise will impress meeting attendees from out of town, and it can’t be beat as a special incentive offering for any company.
