Canal boat to cruise Rochester-area river

A boat that has cruised the Erie Canal, the Finger Lakes and Chesapeake Bay is returning to the Genesee River at Rochester for the first time in six years. The Corn Hill Navigation Company plans to launch the 104-passenger “Mary Jemison” in May. The cruise boat will be based at the Corn Hill docks in Rochester. The company’s first boat the “Sam Patch” will move to the suburban village of Pittsford and offer tours of the Erie Canal.
