greet you at Cross Lake as you cruise on toward Baldwinsville.
At Three Rivers, turn north on the Oswego Canal to the

museums, and a lively city.
Half-Week Cruises on the Erie Canal
Some of our canallers have limited vacation time
and require a shorter cruise schedule. For this reason,
we offer special half-week packages.
