From May through October you can rent a lovely canal cruiser and chart your own vacation course on the Erie Canal and Finger Lakes. How so? With Erie Canal Cruise Lines!
As their mantra puts it, discover “Life in the Past Lane” as you take your own pace down the historic Erie Canal in one of these 42-foot cruisers. The Fair Dinkum, Fantessy and Freedom were constructed with traditional English barge style tweaked with modern conveniences for a comfortable platform while exploring old villages and nature-rich landscapes. Thanks to wheel steering and a bow thruster, operation is simple as you navigate your way through locks and tighter channels. Four is ideal for sleeping onboard, but up to six can get comfortable for the adventure.
Erie Canal Cruise Lines enable you to create your own vacation, but if you’re unsure where to start, they can also offer a cruising itinerary that includes restaurants and shore-side activities to give you ideas. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed onboard, but your fare includes things such as diesel fuel, propane, canal passes, two bikes.
