The Seattle Locks Cruise was Fantastic! We enjoyed the 2.5 hour narrated tour and going through the locks. The Seattle Skyline is beautiful and we had a perfect view. I would definitely recommend this tour!

We really did not know what to expect and booked this on a whim to give us something to do the first full day of our trip. It was the perfect way to see Seattle and all the beautiful different districts, not to mention fascinating, to go through Ballard Locks. Our tour guide, Samantha, was fabulous - so friendly, approachable, and informative.

The cruise was terrific. It was well narrated by the host as well as the captain. Informative but also humor added in. Fun way to see so much of Seattle from the water and the Lock was really interesting to see if you haven't seen that before.

Great tour with on a comfortable boat with a friendly and informative crew. The bartender made us tasty cocktails and I appreciated there was kid friendly options and snack for my son. Loved seeing the lock system so close up and the scenery along the entire trip was spectacular. Nice restrooms and well kept. Will do again and recommend to others.
