Lyons "Fun On The Erie Canal" Weekend Cruises

OVERVIEW: 35 miles or 12 miles of cruising the historic Erie Canal - the longest cruise around!
NEW THIS YEAR - internet booking. All tickets must be booked by web through Finger Lakes Water Adventures (Select "Book an adventure") 

Another New Option: 315-789-5520 is the phone number for Stivers Seneca Marina. If for some reason you cannot book by Internet, call that number and you will be assisted by a staff member. 
Thank you for helping to promote all of Lyons.  In the previous 5 years, all tours were sold out a few weeks before the actual cruises! Ninety (90) percent of those tourists were always from beyond the confines of Lyons. Then all of a sudden, the week of the cruises, Lyons residents wanted tickets - always too late!
Thank you!
Robert Stopper, Lyons Greeter & Erie Canal Ambassador
