What You'll Get
Your Seattle locks cruise departs from Pier 56 on the Seattle Central Waterfront. After hopping on the boat, cruise out along the Ballard Locks, formally the Hiram M Chittenden Locks, built in 1911 to provide a link for boats between the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal, which connects to Lake Union and Lake Washington.
Learn about the complex locks system from the live onboard commentary. You'll be treated with views of the stunning Seattle skyline, Elliot Bay, Puget Sound, Lake Union, Lake Washington, the surrounding mountains and a parade of sailboats, motorboats, tugboats, barges and yachts passing through the locks. Watch as the locks' water levels are adjusted to allow their safe passage, and spot the fish ladder, built to allow salmon to pass between the fresh water and salt water.
You'll also cruise past the iconic floating houseboat community that was featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Take advantage of great photo opportunities here. When you disembark the cruise, you'll be taken back to Pier 56 by coach.
