Canal Cruise to Lockport's Famous "Flight of Five" 1840's Locks on Erie Canal
Another unique way to enjoy a cruise to Lockport's famous "Flight of Five" 1840's locks is by boat! Book a fantastic 2-Hour Canal Cruise for as low as $17.50 per person. Discount available to children, senior, students, AAA members and groups. The 2-hour cruise which includes "locking through" and being raised the 49 ft. elevation of the Niagara Escarpment (the same one that creates Niagara Falls) in the only double set of locks on the Erie Canal. You will pass under bridges that raise straight up, see water cascade over Lockport's famous "Flight of Five" 1840's locks, and travel through the solid walls of the "rock cut" as your Coast Guard licensed captain describes the architecture, sights, and folklore along the way. Bring your camera, rain or shine, you'll enjoy your cruise as you wave to the folks watching from the bridges or the joggers and bicyclists on the tow path. You can salute your fellow "canalers"- a family fishing for bass, the crew of a sailboat, passengers on a motor yacht, the captain of a tug, or scouts in canoes heading for camp. Travel is quiet and peaceful on the Erie Canal. For three wonderful seasons you'll see nature at its best: fruit trees in bloom, beautiful wild flowers, the magnificent colors of autumn, and Lockport's Memorial Tree Garden in Lowertown. Our banquet facilities are handicapped accessible. Please contact us in advance if you have any concerns regarding boat accessibility.
