What is there to do?

There is SO much history in New York State, and not all of it is ABOVE ground!

Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Tour takes you on an exciting 70 minute historical adventure through America's past.

The historic Erie Canal has many stories to tell, and everyone who visits gets to hear all about them! Locks 67-71 were constructed all the way back in 1838, and it's from these you can also explore other historic features, such as ruins from the industrial revolution, and a water tunnel that was blasted out of one piece of solid rock!

Of course, you're underground, so there are those incredible geological formations such as stalactites and flow stones to admire.

Kids - keep an eye out for artifacts left behind within the cave by all the men who actually built the tunnel over 150 years ago!

Then, you have that fun underground boat ride! This unique and mysterious experience is a one of a kind adventure. You will take on the USA's longest underground boat ride, and really get a sense of history from the canal's building, and also how incredible nature is. 

It's not just the boat tour that is popular with Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Tour. You can experience the cave in a whole new "light" with the Evening Lantern Tour, and if you are feeling REALLY brave, you can take on the caves with the Ghost Hunters Experience!

Suitable for older members of the family, you can spend 4 hours investigating one of the most historic and hidden secrets that New York State has to offer.

You might meet some of the men who built the tunnel too...BOO!

Great fun in New York State with Lockport Cave!
