This is a very nice activity to do on the Erie Canal. Lots of one and two person kayaks for rent at reasonable prices. Helpful staff too. It's a lot of fun to kayak around Fairport Village on the canal. Lots to see.

Kayak? Single? Double? Any kind. Just about anytime you want to get out and paddle, enjoy the summer fun on the Erie Canal; they'll be there to assist you.

We took our 4 yr old grand son in a tandem kayak for a canal jaunt - he loved it. They provide all necessary equipment even for handicapped and have volunteers on call to join them and offer help/instructions if needed.
