Just 30 minutes from Niagara Falls USA, Niagara Falls Canada and Buffalo NY "LOW BRIDGE, EVERYBODY DOWN!" Come aboard for a relaxing & informative ride on the 19th-century engineering marvel which opened the American Frontier. Featured on the History Channel's "Modern Marvels," AAA GEM Attraction, CAA Approved. Experience "Locking Through" - being raised and lowered 49 feet in Locks 34 & 35. See the remaining half of the famous "Flight of Five" locks from the 1800's. Be amazed at the 20-foot high stone walls of the 1800's "Rock Cut" and stone towpath blasted out of solid stone with powder left over from the War of 1812. Travel under the widest bridge in the U.S. Pass under 2 lift bridges that raise straight up while everyone sings "Low Bridge, Everybody Down...."

We look forward to seeing you in the future with your grandchildren. We love the look on the children's faces when the boat enters the Locks and then begins to rise.

It was a long ride but worth the trip. Take water and snacks. Sit up front to see best. The shop is expensive but has really cool Erie Canal stuff.

Hello- Yes you can bring a small stroller on board the boat for your 2 year old if the boat is not near capacity.. He/She would cruise for free.

The trip is only about an hour for the basic tour. You will cycle through 2 locks twice and under a draw bridge. Some of the other tours are longer to other destinations outside of Lockport.
