Are you getting excited and looking for seats for the 4th of July? Well, you can always take it one step further and actually enjoy the show from the lake.

Celebrate America’s birthday in the most PNW way possible – on the water. Thanks to Argosy Cruises, you can avoid the packed crowds and pre and post-show rushes by hopping on board one of their cruises. Argosy is operating cruises departing from both Kirkland and Lake Union.

Best of all both of these cruises are 21+ so you can celebrate all night long with Argosy-crafted cocktails and also local beer and wine. That being said, each cruise is a little different so here’s what to expect.

The first option starts on Lake Washington and has a live DJ, and a full-service bar with spirits, beer, wine, and snacks. It costs $160 per person and departs from Carillon Point in Kirkland at 8 PM and returns at 12 AM.

The second option starts on Lake Union at AGC Marina, departing at 8:30 PM and returning at 11 PM. It also has a full-service bar with spirits, beer, wine, and snacks and costs $135 per person.

Tickets for Argosy Cruises’ 4th of July sailings are on sale now and can be purchased until sold out.
