We did the three hour cruise and were very impressed with Drew, our tour director. He discussed the history of the canal and pointed out places of interest along the way. The first 90 minutes is the lecture, then the boat turns around in Sandwich...More

The boat does have rest rooms and you can buy refreshments on the boat.....Highly recommend the cruise, especially down to the Sagamore Bridge. Great for young kids also.
