This AAA Gem Attraction is a real journey through history, so much so that it was even featured on the History Channel. Starting in Lockport, passengers will sail through many worthy sights including the historical "Flight of Five", though the main attraction is when the vessel is actually raised 50 feet through Erie's only double set of locks. The ship passes beneath bridges and along the canal's cut-rock walls—accompanied by a narrated description of historical sites and Erie Canal folklore. Afterwards, you can enjoy a tour of the Canalside Emporium, with its Canal Interpretive Center and gift shop.
