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.

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.
Cool to see how the locks work, especially for kids. Worth a visit if you’re planning to be nearby. Free.
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
