A splendid trip, right balance of narrative and silence and very scenic. Good way to experience the Erie Canal.

We had a really lovely time on the Sam Patch Tour Boat! The crew was really nice, accommodating and knowledgeable. The boat was small but spacious (I’d recommend sitting up near the bow so you can easily see some of the fun) and the snacks and drink options were good (loved the local beer selections). By far, the best part was going through the Lock! This is something that I never though I’d do, or want to do, but so awesome to be a part of! For the money this tour is totally worth it! I also recommend saving room for gelato after the tour at the spot right where you dock 😎
Fantastic tour! Very informative and relaxing. Highly recommend for every age. Handicap accessible. Would recommend getting there 30 min early to allow for parking which can be a problem sometimes. Alllllllll aboard! Enjoy!
