A boat lock system with an underwater view of a fish ladder. A hot spot for mating blue herons and on the way to the beach at Golden Gardens.
Watch the salmon climb the ladder. Watch the boats go from fresh water out to the sound. It’s amazing and one of the oldest parts of Seattle.
Great visit for a first-time visitors. During certain times of the year, you can see salmons migrating via artificial fish ladder.
Visit during Summer and on weekends. It’s free. The locks will have boats line up and water level will go down and up like an elevator for boats.
Amazing to watch the ships pass through the locks. An amazing Fish ladder and beautiful grounds. Free outdoor concerts in the summer.
Ballard locks link the Puget Sound with Lake Union and Lake Washington. Boats as large as 760 feet in length and as small as a kayak can travel through the locks. The locks are also a critical link for salmon and steelhead heading upstream to spawn. A fish ladder with 21 steps or “weirs” allows…
A unique Seattle experience—watching boats transfer between the Sound and the ship canal. Plus you can often catch sights of seals and migrating fish.

Ballard locks is a great location to watch boats and fish make their way from the Puget sound to Lake Washington. Just a 10 minute drive from home
These historic locks have been operating for over 100 years connecting boats between Lake Union/Lake Washington and the Puget Sound. Be sure to check out the salmon elevator while you're there.

“You can't come to Seattle and not visit Pike Place! They have beautiful flowers year round, fresh fish, live music, and lots of vendors. If you want to have a fish thrown over your head, just purchase any fish from the Pike Place Fish Market. ”

“Years ago, the zoo gave up enclosed structures and bars separating the animals from visitors. Now the experience is a green meander from exhibit to exhibit. World class zoo! Bonus...outdoor summer concerts. Our personal fav is Portland's Pink Martini, seen them multiple times there!”
