Visitors to Seattle, especially families, often pay quite a bit of money to take a one hour Argosy cruise around Puget Sound: $30 for adults, $25 for seniors, and $16.50 for kids. You get great views of the city from the harbor. But you don’t have to pay anywhere near that for the great view. All you have to do is book the ferry to Bainbridge and back, $4.25 for adults and $1.00 for seniors if you walk on. If you time the return right, you can see the big cruise ships leaving port to head up to Alaska.
