Experience “Life in the Past Lane" when you get on board for your cruise on the historic Erie Canal, a 363-mile waterway between the Hudson River with Niagara River and the Great Lakes and an important part of American history.
Your fun and informative cruise will take you past five of the original 1800's locks. Three million gallons of water will fill Locks 34 & 35, the only double set on the Erie Canal, and raise the boat 50 feet. You’ll pass under Lockport's "Upside Down Bridge," Lockport's "Big Bridge" (the widest bridge in the U.S. at 299 feet wide), through the "deep rock cut" and under lift bridges. The lively narration by the Coast Guard Licensed Captains is also accompanied by crowd-pleasing canal music, popular during the 1800's.
Cruises depart daily from May to October aboard Coast Guard inspected vessels that are easily accessible and have clean restroom facilities. Snacks and licensed beverages are available on board. Free parking right outside the door of our beautiful Lockport Canalside.
The Gift Shop offers a wide variety of souvenir memorabilia for young and old alike. We have books dedicated to the construction and history of the Erie Canal; traditional Erie Canal music CDs; Irish novelties, because of the connection of Irish workers on the Canal; Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises Hats, Visors, Knickknacks, Clocks, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Tee Shirts, and Jackets; Children's games and toys; Framed pictures; Post Cards, Pens & Pencils. Feel free to browse!
At the Café our visitors are able to purchase sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, soft drinks, ice cream, candy, bottled water, beer and snacks. They are free to take their purchase on-board for their cruise, eat inside or at the outdoor picnic tables.
