Take a Underground Cave Tour on the Erie Canal
Lockport Cave is finally offering underground boat tours for the 2021 season on the Erie Canal.
The tours have been canceled since the coronavirus pandemic. But the boats are back to running at Lockport Cave with a few new modifications and safety guidelines. Social distancing and mask wearing is optional and at your discretion.
You'll start your tour walking along the banks of the Erie Canal, tour the cave by lantern light and experience one of America’s longest underground boat rides. You'll see artifacts left by miners on the Erie Canal over a century ago, cave formations in their early stages of development and enjoy a “peaceful and eerie” ride as a boat glides through the lifeless water, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.
Online reservations are recommended, however credit card only walk-in reservations can be made if spots are available.
Adult (Age 15+): $23.95 + tax
Young Adult (Age 6-14): $15.95 + tax
Child (Age 5 and Under): $6.00 + tax
Lockport Cave is open daily for tours from 10:00AM to 4PM. You can schedule your tour and boat ride at Lockportcave.com.
You can also experience four hours exclusively investigating one of most historic and hidden secrets of New York State. Your experience starts with an orientation session and tour of the perimeter provided by the Lockport Caves Staff through the very eerie Holly Company historic site. An experience like no other, personally encounter the pure isolation from humanity. The Cave was described as the “tunnels of terror” by the Ghost Hunters on Season 8.
