Boat Tour Season has started! Public Boat Tours are Wednesdays and Sundays at 1, 2 & 3pm. You purchase your tickets in Sims Store, which is open 12 – 4pm on those days. We do not offer pre-sale at this time. If you are interested in booking a private boat charter for 2024 please contact us!

Boat tours run on Wednesdays and Sundays at 1, 2 and 3pm. Your 45 minute narrated tour will take you over the 1842 Nine Mile Creek Aqueduct, the only rewatered and navigable aqueduct left in the World from the First Enlargement of the Erie Canal! Take a step back in history while enjoying the beautiful sites of our Park, all from the water.

Tickets are family-friendly at $5/adult, $3/children 4 – 12 and a $15 nuclear family maximum (a nuclear family is parents plus children or grandparents plus grandchildren.) Please purchase your tickets before your ride at Sims Store. We are able to accommodate wheelchairs.

While taking in the sights, enjoy learning about life along the canal. Feel free to ask questions and share knowledge of the Erie Canal.

PRIVATE BOAT CHARTERS for groups or special events can be arranged upon request. Please contact Lisa at

All boats are inspected by the State of New York and operated by licensed pilots.

Boat tours will run until early October. Hope to see you on the water!
