most flexible cruise excursions in seattle


Seattle and its surroundings hold nearly too much to see and do!  With just 1 or maybe 2 days in Seattle either before or after your cruise, you've got to make the most of your time.  Even if you’ve just just a half-day before or after your cruise, don’t squander precious time languishing at the airport or in the cruise terminal! We can help you avoid this downfall and make the most of your time in Seattle!  Our regularly scheduled Outdoor Tours and Food Tours are great places to start if you're looking for an easy way to explore the region's most stunning landscapes and incredibly fresh flavors. 

If you've got a small group of up to 14 people, we highly recommend you check out our private tours below. All of these tours can include a complimentary drop-off at Sea-Tac Airport, the cruise terminals or wherever you’re staying in Seattle. If you like where are heads are at but don’t see a tour that fits just what you’re looking for, be sure to inquire about a Custom Tour.  With you Custom Tour service, you're the Captain and we'll steer the boat.  We've been called the "most flexible tour operator in Seattle."  We offer you options to fit your interests and group mix, a reasonable price that fits your budget. Any services you need and none that you don't!
