Re: St. Lawrence ?

The Erie Canal is currently closed anyway.

You will need a passport for Canadian customs.

Re: St. Lawrence ?

Did the passage in 2006, there was a passport control at entrance to Welland Canal. We had to rouse the guards from a Pub. 6 of us on board, gave a stack of 5 passports - ( one crew was non-US citizen ) - low key, friendly. US s/v

I'd be more concerned about getting back into the US without a US passport.
