We did the three hour cruise and were very impressed with Drew, our tour director. He discussed the history of the canal and pointed out places of interest along the way. The first 90 minutes is the lecture, then the boat turns around in Sandwich...More

Be aware. Summer parking is challenging. Booked a 1:30 canal cruise for 4 and upon arrival at 12:30 found no parking spaces available. Drove around for 1/2 hr to all the area lots and found none. Had to cancel. They wanted to charge me $3.00...More

For just $17 you can take a narrated 3 hr canal cruise which leaves at 10AM. The afternoon music cruise is not narrated. There are other dropdown options so be careful of which one you chose on the website as it automatically has the 2...More

The boat does have rest rooms and you can buy refreshments on the boat.....Highly recommend the cruise, especially down to the Sagamore Bridge. Great for young kids also.
