Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride

The Lockport Cave & Underground Boat Ride in Lockport, NY, on the Erie Canal, is just a 20 minute drive from Niagara Falls (via Route 31 East), offers the public an exciting 70-minute guided tour through America’s past. You will explore the historic Erie Canal Locks 67-71, constructed in 1838. You will also view ruins from an earlier industrial age, walk safely through a water tunnel that was blasted out of solid rock in the 1850s, viewing stalactites, flow stone, various geological formations and artifacts left behind by the men who built the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal. If you are lucky you may even find a fossil or two.
Ride an underground Boat ride that is Unique and Mysterious:
The next part of your journey is a one-of-a-kind underground boat ride. Embark on America’s longest underground boat ride through a trip of wonders. Marvel at artifacts left by miners on the Erie Canal over a century ago. And view cave formations in their early stages of development. Visitors are awestruck as they take a ride that has been described as both “peaceful and eerie” as the boat glides through the lifeless water, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.
