Our Special Sauce

We wish we could take credit for what makes us special but the Erie Canal Corridor did most of the heavy lifting.  At Erie Canal Adventures, we provide the means to explore one of the most impressive waterways in North America.  Our purpose-built vessels are designed to make navigation and accommodation comfortable, safe, and fun.

Visit Norman Rockwell inspired towns dotted with restaurants and breweries or use the canal as a launching point to explore all the region has to offer.  Close by you will find the second-largest wine-producing region in the country, access to Niagara Falls, close proximity to the Finger Lakes and much, much more!

At Erie Canal Adventures our team is here to make your adventure the most memorable trip of your life!

Our Story


Our boats are called Lockmaster for a reason.  Along your journey, you will have an opportunity to experience these engineering marvels that make canal travel the most impressive example of human kind's ability to harness nature.  Our purpose-built vessels have specially designed features that will allow you to traverse locks like even the most experienced "canalers".


Our entire fleet of Lockmaster boats was built by Midlakes Navigation out of Skaneateles NY.  The Wiles Family develop the canal boat rental business reminiscent of a trip they took as a family to explore the canals of the UK on a narrowboat. Erie Canal Adventures acquired the business from the Wiles Family and we look forward to continuing their legacy of providing exceptional vacation opportunities in this region.

Allie Keenan

I grew up in this region.  I absolutely love the charming towns and unique foods that make upstate NY home.  We can't wait to share it with you.


Brian Keenan

I didn't grow up here, I think that makes me love it even more.  Upstate NY is overlooked by many, I am blown away every day about how great this area is.
