How To Sea Doo Through Locks Properly & Safely

How To Sea Doo Through Locks Properly & Safely

Learn Rules & Boating Etiquette For Locking Thru on PWCs…  Taking your Sea Doo through locks process can be intimidating at first for either experienced riders, beginners or renters on self guided Sea Doo tours. Sea-Doo watercraft riders may encounter locks or other by pass systems on some waterways while going on Sea Doo tour on Sea Doo, Jet Ski or Waverunner watercraft in Ontario and throughout Canada.

Trent Severn Waterway Sea Doo Tour Ride Planner

Ontario’s Trent Severn Waterway From Trenton to Severn Falls… This Trent Severn Waterway Sea Doo Tour is a 400-kilometre, self guided, jet ski adventure from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay. I guesstimated this Ontario journey at five days, barring bad weather. Included was a sightseeing cushion that might be consumed by the other variables beyond my control — such as the 44 various manmade devices for transporting boats through the Waterway’s 183-metre range of elevation (see How To Go Through Locks). Or the time required to cruise the numerous ‘Speed Limit’ zones en route. Or simply getting lost. I had visions of sleeping with the proverbial farmer’s daughter whenever I couldn’t make my intended destination. Hummm … maybe a delay or two …
