Mid-Lakes Canal Boat Business is Now Erie Canal Adventures

We are proud to announce that in August of 2019, the husband and wife team of Allie & Brian Keenan acquired Mid-Lakes Navigation's canal boat operation and homeport in Macedon, NY.

The Keenans are long-time boaters and water enthusiasts.  Allie and Brian Keenan are proud to continue the rich history of Mid-Lakes Navigation and the Wiles Family while also injecting new and exciting enthusiasm into this fine business.

The entire fleet of Lockmaster canal boats will remain as well as the expert staff many of you have come to call friends.

If you were guests of Mid-Lakes in the past we welcome you back and if you are joining us for the first time we look forward to hosting you for the best vacation of your life.

"Our entire team at Mid-Lakes Navigation couldn't be happier with the transition of our beloved canal operation to Brian and Allie Keenan.  As we thought about the next steps, we knew we needed a family that loved water, loved the region, and was as customer-focused as we have been for the last 50+ years.  We look forward to this exciting next chapter of the canal and wish the Keenans much luck and success."  Peter Wiles, Jr.
