Very informative Erie Canal cruise. Pass through one of the many locks. Refreshments available. Need to sit upfront to hear narrator better. If back by motors, kind of hard to hear him.

The cruise was great. Learned a lot Jerry was very interesting and informative. What an experience going through Lock 18. Wow. Had no clue. This was like being back in time to early time on the Erie Canal. It is something you should not miss.
