Navigate our Waterways

Whether paddling down the meandering gorge of the Oak Orchard River or navigating the calm waters of the grand Erie Canal, you’ll find good times around every bend. Our canal port villages of Albion, Holley and Medina offer docking right along side the downtown historic districts and within an easy walk to restaurants, shops and museums. If sailing is your passion, the Lake Ontario shoreline and our sheltered Oak Orchard Harbor shouldn’t be missed for a moonlit cruise.
