Lockport Caves - Boat Ride

These were interesting caves that were actually water tunnels dug under the city in the 1800s. The tour was surprisingly long (over an hour) and interesting. It's in an unusual location -- on a spit of land in the middle of a river.

[Cathy Kant, 03/21/2005]

Lockport Cave tours include a walk through a 1,600-fot-long underground tunnel and an underground boat ride, claimed to be "America's Longest." The tunnels were created in the mid- to late 19th century to move surplus water from the the Erie Canal to local factories.
