The best part of the cave is the under ground boat ride by far. Overall it was a lot of walking but it was fun to do. I would do this tour at least once in your life. You wouldn’t be disappointed!!

Who knew something in my backyard would be so amazing? My 4&7 yr old boys loved exploring. The guide was so knowledgeable. It is worth every penny and made me very proud to be from Lockport!

This was a fun tour and history lesson. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. There is quite a bit of walking and stairs, so it might not be for everybody, but it was worth the time and expense.

This cave was different as it was full of history. The guide did very good job with explaining the history of the locks and the cave and how it was constructed. Overall a good time.

We stopped in Lockport to get a better sense of the Erie Canal and its history. While there, we heard about this cave and boat ride, so gave them a try as well. The Lockport Cave is a manmade tunnel, roughly paralleling the canal, that...More

No, pets are not allowed. If it is a service animal I would call and double check with them to see if accommodations can be made.
