We planned our event here for months and every inch of the way was a breeze. Mike and his staff were accommodating to our every need. From the moment we entered they wanted to know exactly how we wanted things set up and were there in a flash to move things for us. The food was wonderful and there was... More

My wife and I were seeking a relaxing, informative experience and this delivered both. Wonderful, down to earth folks were charming and friendly. The cruise itself takes you through the Lockport locks which was very interesting to observe as well as under a few pretty neat bridges. Tip: they sell sandwiches, cookies, and snacks in the gift shop - good... More

The boat was a double decker with a restroom and snacks available. The captain gave the history of the canal as we cruised the canal and locks and walked through the boat so that people could ask questions.

As the mother of the bride, I would like to thank Sharon, Mike, and their staff for a fantastic wedding ceremony, boat trip, and reception. From our very first planning meeting to our final minutes at the end of the wedding day, everyone involved in the experience was extremely helpful, professional, and accommodating. The meal was delicious, the wait staff... More

We took our two grandsons on the boat cruise through the locks on the Erie Canal. It was a very informative and relaxing trip. The captain was great and explained everything along the way. The deck hand was very attentive to watching the children on board for safety issues.

I would unequivocally recommend the cruise and here is why... My fiancée and I had a dinner cruise event on board with 50+ people who drove from all over the country to be with us. From the beginning to the end, Mike (owner) was professional, courteous and honest with my family about setting up for the event. (Complete opposite of... More

A fantastic guided tour boat ride thru the Lockport Locks in the Erie Canal. The tour guide was wonderful and gave tons of Historical facts, cute little jokes and stories as well as playing some great folk music that I can't stop singing now. " I got a mule her name is Sal, 15 miles on the Erie Canal......."

We went Sunday afternoon September 21st. It was comfortable and informative. Nice way to spend a couple hours. It cost $32 for two people. The facilities on shore wear beautiful and clean with a nice bathroom. There was lots of free parking. Seemed like a family business.
