Transiting the Ballard Locks   NEW!

The Ballard Locks are a 100-year-old engineering marvel that enable boats to go between our freshwater lakes and Puget Sound. They're also the busiest locks in the US, carrying everything from kayaks to barges. Master the required skills to make your next transit through the locks less stressful and more fun. Through step-by-step guidance and hands-on experience, we'll focus on preparation, safety, communication, and more. Session 1 takes place at Seattle Maritime Academy and includes hands-on practice using our recreational teaching vessel. Session 2 takes place on the water and includes a minimum of two transits through the Ballard Locks. In this class you will: Learn the equipment required for transiting the Ballard Locks, learn about the Rules of the Road specific to lock transit, gain hands-on boat-handling and line-handling experience. Transit the Ballard Locks under the guidance of experienced instructors and pick up useful tips to make your transits less stressful.
