The Erie Canal Experience begins at Gems Along the Mohawk, and traveling to Lock 18 in Jacksonburg for a guided land tour of the lock.

The guided land tour would observe the operational components of Lock 18 with an overview regarding the 100+ year old Motor Boxes with DC current. The tour would then visit the historic power house featuring the original equipment used to generate power to operate the lock in 1918, one of very few remaining on the Erie Canal.

The land tour will then take short walk on the Canalway Trail to the original Erie Canal prism that is still visible. After a discussion on the original Erie Canal, board the bus and return to Gems Along the Mohawk for cruise on the Erie Canal.

Upon boarding the vessel, everyone will receive a ‘Taste of NY Snack Pack’ to enjoy on the cruise to Lock 18. You will have a specialized narration about the electrical components of the lock, a trip through Lock 18 and then return to Gems Along the Mohawk for lunch at the Waterfront Grille!
