“Neat to see at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I was coming out of a nearby restaurant and got to see a big ship coming through. The lights on the bridge in combination with the moonlight made for a nice stop.

“A sight to behold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Watching this aerial lift bridge in operation was very interesting. We were on a harbor tour and our boat went right under it. It gave us an opportunity for some awesome pictures. We also saw it in operation from a walkway right below and that also was very impressive.

Best place to watch for ships coming and going is from Enger tower, or close up eat at grandmas saloon when the outdoor tables are open.

“Cool view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Fun to watch the ships pass under. The ships come about 3-4 hours. A museum and lookout area is located right next to the bridge.
