Soo Locks Sightseeing Tours
Experience an exciting sightseeing tour through the famous Soo Locks, the world’s largest locking system. You will actually ride through the Soo Locks and cruise alongside giant lake and ocean ships. Inside the Soo Locks your boat will ride the water as it is raised 21' straight up, to the level of Lake Superior. The typical tour route includes an up bound and down bound lockage through both the giant U.S. Locks and historic Canadian Lock. A live narration explains everything you see, including the history and operation of the Locks. Your boat brings you close to all the interesting sights along the shorelines of the twin border cities.
