The Colonial Belle (Fairport, NY)

The Erie Canal can be experienced via walking, jogging or biking, as well as by boat!  The Colonial Belle is a 149-passenger boat that cruises the Erie Canal Tuesdays through Sundays, departing from Fairport.  The boat includes an enclosed lower deck and an upper open-air deck, has a full-service bar and two restrooms.  A typical trip on the Colonial Belle will last 2 or 3 hours, traveling between Fairport and Pittsford, and could include lock passage at Canal Park in Pittsford (3-hour cruise).

Summer or Fall is a great time to explore the Erie Canal, one of the very unique aspects of the region.
