Experience Locking Through the Soo Locks
The Soo Locks have been referred to as one of the great wonders of the world and it is still the largest waterway traffic system on earth. On the Soo Locks Tour you'll be in for a two-hour live narrated excursion that will actually
take you through the Locks, right alongside the big freighters. Your tour boat will ride the water as it is raised twenty-one feet, straight up, to
the level of Lake Superior. You will then cruise under the International
Bridge and railroad bridge before crossing into Canadian waters where you'll
see one of Canada's largest steel plants in operation. You will return to the
lower harbor through the historic "newly restored" Canadian Lock and cruise
past the St. Mary's Rapids. Your boat will continue along the international
shoreline of the lower harbor letting you experience all the sights, sounds,
and excitement of Michigan's oldest city, Sault Ste Marie. Soo Locks Boat
Tours is one of Michigan's top attractions and is recognized by AAA as a GEM®
attraction. Many departure times are available.
