Corn Hill Navigation
Corn Hill Navigation offers cruises on the packet boat Sam Patch and the wooden double-decker the Mary Jemisonalong the Erie Canal May through October. The Sam Patch passes through a canal lock, leaving from 12 Schoen Place, in Pittsford. The boat was named for a 19th-century Evel Knievel who, after successfully leaping into Niagara Falls and into Rochester's High Falls (with a pet bear), met his maker upon his second plunge into High Falls in 1829. The Mary Jemison cruises past historic sights in downtown Rochester as the captain narrates. It leaves from Corn Hill Landing, at Exchange Boulevard and Plymouth Avenue South. 585/262–5661. www.samandmary.org. $13. May–Oct.; schedules vary.
