Event description

Description

Explore the inner workings of the iconic Ballard Locks. VIP Tours are led by highly qualified resident Engineers and Rangers.

Tours are restricted to 18 years and older, no wheelchair access as it requires climbing 55 feet down (and back up) on temporary scaffolding...not for the faint of heart. A liability form must be signed.

This is a unique opportunity to learn how the Locks really work, how they serve Seattle and what it takes to keep them functioning after 100 years of operation. Tours are 2 hours long and available on Nov 13, 16 & 17 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. Tours are limited to groups of 20 people and sell out fast, so book early. It is possible that other tours may open up, so if you miss these dates check back.

All Fees charged for tours are used to improve visitor educational facilities at the Locks.

VIP Tours-Inside the Locks fees will go to the upcoming Fish Ladder Education Center project, starting this fall. The Fish Ladder Viewing area will be closed during the winter season...Stay Tuned to follow the progress.
