Great Lakes cruise

Two other ports worth going to are Put in Bay off Sandusky, Ohio and Port Colborne, Ontario at the mouth of the Welland Canal. I''ve made the trip thru the canal every fall for the last 5 years, bringing a boat from lake ontario to lake erie on to Buffalo and then to Tonawanda which is the start of the erie canal. Freighter traffic varies, we''ve made the trip thru the canal(27 miles) in 4 hours and then again it took us 26 hours on another trip. You can''t tie up at anytime, unless the lock master tells you to. I have a lot of Info about the trip you want to take but it would clog up this site. Send me your E mail to and I''ll send you pics and all kinds of information and some options.
