Welland Canal Tour 1 Hour

The Welland Ship Canal is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway, that connects the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. It was created to bypass the might Niagara Falls. The canal is 43 km (23.5 nautical miles) and has more locks than the famous Panama Canal!

Take a Segway Tour of the Welland Canal and learn about its history and latest engineering advances. This 1-hour tour begins with a Segway training course and then we travel from Lock 3 in St. Catharines and continues for approximately 5 kilometers towards the Niagara Escarpment.

This tour is perfect for small groups, looking to have a relaxing adventure and learn about the engineering marvel that is the Welland Canal.
