Corn Hill Navigation announces the return of Sam Patch to our Community’s Waterways. After the downtown fireworks celebration, the Sam Patch met an unfortunate incident where upon backing the vessel up to free the anchor, the line became fouled by the prop.
  We are happy to report that after removing the anchor line, hauling Sam out of the water and inspecting the engine and propeller, all were intact. Corn Hill Navigation has had the pleasure of providing access to our beloved waterways for 24 years. Over this time nearly 300,000 passengers made up of schoolchildren and folks from literally all over the world have enjoyed the beauty of the Erie Canal. It is worthy noted that over this long tenure, our safety record is impeccable – no major incidents have occurred thanks to the commitment of care and safety of our passengers.
  Sam will resume the regularly scheduled cruise schedule beginning tomorrow, July 8th  Come on down!

Our student group really enjoyed the trip on the canal today. It was a great experience for them to see the Erie canal locks rise and fall and to better understand the history of our region. Mrs. Anderson
Our group really liked hearing about the history of the canal. Our guide was very knowledgeable  and was able to answer all of our questions. Thank you again. Melisa Beauchesne
