Opening Weekend Ballard Locks Tour!
When: Saturday, April 8, 2017 9:00 AM
Where: Shilshole Bay Marina, Seattle, WA W-Dock, Seattle
The Ballard Locks is the second most visited tourist attraction in Seattle. Instead of going TO IT, go THROUGH IT! Our guides will paddle you through Ballard's scenic Shilshole Bay, where you will likely see multiple seals, sea lions, osprey and great herons. You will then enter the historic Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks*. As the 30 ton gates of the "water elevator" shut behind you, you can look up to see that all of the tourists are watching with envy as you gently rise to Lake Union's water level. Then off through the ship canal, home to Seattle's largest mega yachts and the infamous Deadliest Catch boats. We end this trip by heading back downstream to Shilshole Bay Marina. *Please note we do not have control over the locks schedule, and cannot guarantee we get through them. Either way, we will enjoy the wildlife and the company!
