We had a wonderful tour - the crew was very informative and professional. The crew answered any question asked. We had a beautiful morning ....chilly, with warm sun. Our trip was extended by about an hour as the locks were both busy with large ships...even then the crew continued to provide additional detailed information. Also, as we waited in the morning there was coffee and snacks available which was a wonderful touch. The gift store staff were so nice and helpful (offered to hold bags until after tour). I would enjoy this day again.

Nice way to see the locks and the surrounding waterways. Detailed narration thru the whole 2 hr trip. Captain and crew cordially answered all questions about the area, the locks, and shipping. We thighs it was well worth the ticket price. (Unfortunately, it turned cold and rainy late in the tour. There are covered benches but I suggest bringing extra warm clothing)

Oh my gosh! Ha down down BEST experience. If you are choosing between the two boat locations please support this family run small business first. DOCK 1! We watched the other boat tour while next to them on the water and through locks. They didn’t have the nice seating or captain talking about everything around us, like our boat. Choose this tour location first.
