“Very informative tour.”
Review of Soo Locks

Soo Locks
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

It was raining quite hard, but no matter. The tour boat had a warm, enclosed area below deck. The two hour tour took us through the locks while everything was explained to us about what was going on. There was a concession area for snacks and drinks, including beer, hot chocolate, popcorn, etc.

This is must see! For children young and old. The day we visited the locks it was in the low 60's and raining, but we still had fun watching the ships go up and down. The free, glass enclosed observation deck was nice for the rain, but make sure you travel down the stairs toward the park to watch the locks open and the tankers come through (for perspective). Also, for you history buffs out there notice the plaques at bottom of stairs for 1940? something and 1857.

Loved the new viewing stand next to the locks. The visitor center is nice to visit. Great that they give you arrival times of freighters.
