Experience an underground boat ride that is both unique and mysterious. On this 70-minute journey you will embark on one of America’s longest underground boats and ride along the Erie Canal. Marvel at artifacts left by miners over a century ago and view cave formations in their early stages of development. You will be awestruck as you make your way through the cave. After the walking portion of your tour, take a boat ride that is often described as both peaceful and eerie as it glides through the lifeless water, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.

What You'll Do

Just a 30-minute drive from Niagara Falls, experience history come to life on the Erie Canal. The first part of your journey is a guided walking tour at a leisurely stop and go pace.

Walk through a 1600 foot water power tunnel blasted out of solid rock, see ruins from the industrial revolution, view stalactites, flow stone, various geological formations and artifacts left behind in the underground caves by the men who built the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal.

After the walking portion of your tour, experience America’s past through a captivating underground boat ride. You'll explore the historic engineering marvels on the Erie Canal from the 1800’s!
