Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises
Amusement and Entertainment
Thirty-two years in business. Began operating with a single 18 passenger pontoon boat. Has grown into a business with three tour boats (one is a Mississippi type dual paddle wheel special events/party boat), with a banquet building, full kitchen, restaurant license, fully licensed bar that is open for events, a gift shop, and 500 feet of Erie Canal frontage.
Come experience the majesty of the Erie Canal a.k.a Clinton's Ditch. Open year round for receptions, banquets and parties. Pavilion and picnic grove for outside events. Group and student tours.
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 399 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.
