One of Longest Underground Boat Tours in the Country is in New York
One of the longest underground boat tours in the country is along the Erie Canal.
Lockport Cave is home to the longest underground boat tour in the county and the boats are back to running for the season. Start your tour walking along the banks of the Erie Canal where you'll see artifacts left by miners over a century ago.
Head Down Into the Cave
You'll head down and tour the Lockport Cave by lantern light to experience one of America’s longest underground boat rides.
Peaceful & Eerie Ride
Walk past cave formations in their early stages of development before enjoying a “peaceful and eerie” ride as the boat glides through the lifeless water, lit only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.
Online reservations are recommended, however, walk-in reservations can be made if spots are available.
Adult (Age 15+): $27.55
Young Adult (Age 6-14): $18.42
Child (Age 5 and Under): $7.35
Lockport Cave is open daily for tours from 10:00 AM to 4 PM. You can schedule your tour and boat ride at Lockportcave.com.
Ghost Hunting Experience
You can also take a ghost-hunting experience during Halloween, investigating one of the most historic and hidden secrets of New York State. Lockport Cave was described as the “tunnels of terror” by the Ghost Hunters in Season 8.
Your ghost-hunting experience will start with an orientation session and a tour of the perimeter provided by the Lockport Caves Staff through the very eerie Holly Company historic site. Learn more at Ghosthuntersexperience.com.
