PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WHEC) — The popular Sam Patch Tour Boat was lowered into the Erie Canal Thursday for the official launch of the 2020 boating season.

A new program called Reconnect on the Canal will offer affordable charters for groups of friends, family and co-workers after spending time apart during the coronavirus pandemic at the beginning of the season.


A limited number of special public cruises will be held over the Fourth of July weekend and regular public cruises will resume on July 10.

The cruises will all depart from Schoen Place in Pittsford.

Tickets can be reserved online or by phone at 585-662-5748 or by email at
