the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks first opened in 1916, they were considered
an astonishing engineering feat. They still are. This national historic
site is host to 1.5 million visitors a year from all over the world.
And each year, more than 75,000 vessels and two million tons of
cargo pass through the locks.
These visitors line the canal to watch as the locks use as much
as 10 million gallons of water to raise or lower tugboats, pleasure
crafts, and every other imaginable craft up to 26 feet to compensate
for the difference between the levels of Lake Washington and Puget
The Canal, you’ll have a deckside view to all the picturesque
marine traffic on this historic waterway. And you and your guests
will be just a short walk from the famous fish ladder and underwater
viewing windows, where Sockeye, Chinook and Coho salmon can be seen
migrating through the canal to Lake Washington. All while enjoying the delicious catering by Jewel Catering.
