For everyone that is reading this article and interested on booking a trip to go on the Locks cruise in Seattle here are some things to keep in mind in order to have a great experience. While preparing to go to the cruise make sure to plan ahead so you can be on time. Please make sure that before you go, see to it that you have everything that you need packed and ready to go. What I am referring to when I say that is, make sure that you plan a schedule to go to your scheduled medical appointments or any other events and get them over with in which ever order you see fit. In order to make sure that you make it on time and to not miss your start time. Whenever you arrive at the designated area in which the cruise will take place, if you’re driving a car or riding a bike, make sure that beforehand you come up with a special budget that fits your specific wants and needs, pack what ever swimming gear you want and give yourself enough time to find a spot to park. While the event starts and you and the company that you bought along with you start to board the boat, make sure that while doing so, you need to watch where you step. And make sure to be friendly to the tourists and greeting staff. While you greet and getting to know different people, and enjoy the sights. Some additional advice that I'd like to give you would be to enjoy the different refreshments available. I hope this helps, have fun.
You don't have to be a shipping enthusiast to be enthralled by the complex workings of the Seattle locks system - originally built to transport coal and timber from the eastern shores of Lake Washington. Along the way you'll be treated to stunning city skylines and mountain views, and a trip to the "Sleepless in Seattle" floating houseboat district.
Since 1963, this cruise has been operating on both salt and fresh water via Seattle's famous Hiram Chittenden Locks. Live narration teaches how the Locks function, all while experiencing fantastic city and mountain views from Elliott Bay, Puget Sound, Lake Union and the Lake Washington Ship Canal.
You will also enjoy seeing the unique "Sleepless in Seattle" floating houseboat community. The return journey back to your original departure point is motorcoach.
