Tie Up Service at Lock Approach Walls

Mariners are advised that effective opening of navigation, the Seaway entities will again offer, for a continuing trial period, a tie-up service at approach walls and Seaway wharves to vessels which elect not to install or use landing booms. The vessel's crew will be responsible for casting off the vessel on the approach walls and at wharves.

The fee (under review) for this service for each round trip or part thereof, regardless of the number of approach wall tie-ups provided, will be:

Montreal-Lake Ontario Section$750 Cdn.
Welland Canal$750 Cdn.

The service is mandatory for vessels electing not to fit landing booms.

This service must be requested at least 24 hours before the start of each transit using the attached form. The charges for this service will be invoiced separately.

For mooring on approach walls and wharves, vessels are to provide their own synthetic lines that must comply with Part 1, Section 10(3) of the Seaway Handbook. The use of nylon mooring lines will not be permitted.
