Boat Oneida’s pontoons, fishing boats, and sport-fishing boats cast off onto shimmery Oneida Lake, a body of water formed more than 12,000 years ago when glaciers blocked the flow of the St. Lawrence River. Today, the lake stretches 22 miles long and 5 miles wide with an average depth of 22 feet, letting boaters cast their lines to lure walleye, perch, and bass. Boat Oneida’s vessels allow groups of up to 14 to skirt the gently rippling surface as they angle, and swim. Sunchaser pontoon boats outfitted with Yamaha motors find prime fishing spots with onboard fish and depth finders, whereas sport-fishing boats seat up to six, and double as speedy tubing and cruising vessels.

Q&A with a Member on the Board of Trustees

What is the experience like?
“The best field trip ever”—school children from all over Central New York share this sentiment when they visit Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum. Last year, over 1,800 school children learned about the Erie Canal, boat building, [and] life on a canal boat, and they experienced what it is like to be a real archaeologist searching for historic artifacts while enjoying our top-notch education program. An award-winning historic site, the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum preserves the history of the only restored historic dry dock on the canal and shares the story of the Erie Canal’s role in making New York the Empire State.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Walk along the Erie Canal to the stone aqueduct. Bring or rent a bike and explore along the path where Sal the mule walked from Buffalo to Albany pulling the canal boats loaded with New York state agricultural products, and see the sites that thousands of immigrants from Ireland and all of Europe first saw as they traveled on the Erie Canal to settle western New York and the states west [of there].
