What to expect

Take in stunning views and experience the transition from salt to fresh water on this 2-hour cruise of the Hiram M. Chittenden Ballard Locks! The Locks are one of Seattle's most popular tourist attractions and serve as a barrier between the salt waters of Puget Sound and the freshwater beyond.

The fully narrated cruise will provide knowledge, fun facts and the chance to become the attraction to those onshore as your vessel raises up or lowers from the ever-changing tides of Puget Sound!

Take in views of the Seattle skyline, see the Fremont and Ballard bridges, and enjoy drinks and snacks available for purchase on board.
