Fantastic experience. Very easy to book and pay online, which makes it quick to get out on the canal on arrival. Really helpful and friendly staff who are very efficient. Kayaking on the canal is so easy and so relaxing. I would recommend this to anyone. Even on a summer weekend the canal is quiet. First time kayakers would have no problems. With very little current it is not strenuous at all. Looking forward to going again.

My husband and I received a gift card for Erie Canal Boat Company, and decided to take our adult son with autism along too! What a super gift! We had a great time, even though none of us had ever kayaked before. The owner helped us choose the right kayaks - a two- person for my son and husband and a single for me. He gave us the directions for setting off and returning for each boat, and simple instructions on paddling that our son could follow. Even asked if he had any sensory issues. They have adaptive equipment so that folks with physical challenges can get out on the water too!. Friendly and affordable fun for any family.

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.

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.
