Erie Canal Cruises


Imagine yourself in the early 1800's traveling the Erie Canal, being raised and lowered in the lock and listening to tales being spun by the captain. This experience can be yours aboard Lil' Diamond II. Hear the history of the canal, from it's origin in Rome, to it's current role. Experience the thrill of being raised and lowered 20 feet inside the lock - the smoothest elevator you've ever ridden. All this and more on a calm and relaxing 90 minute cruise. We have two vessels both U.S. Coast Guard certified. Lil'Diamond II can take a maximum of 52 passengers and Lil' Diamond III can take up to 130 passengers. We now offer much more than just our fully narrated Daily Cruises at 1:00pm and 3:00pm. The Living History Cruise which includes the historic Herkimer Home an 18th century chocolate making demonstration and lunch is becoming a fast favorite. This season we will have Friday Night Party Cruises each week in July and August. Each FNPC will have a DJ on board and has a different theme to keep the parties fun and interesting. Our latest addition is the Comedy Cruise of which we will have three this season. The Comedy Works will be booking comedians to have on board during our 2-hour evening cruise. Group rates apply to groups of 30+ on the DAILY CRUISES. RESERVATIONS ARE STRONGLY RECCOMMENDED and the number to call is (315) 717-0350. Private Charter information available by calling (315) 866-5989
