Itinerary

The Welland Canal Tours begin at the St Catharines Museum located at 1932 Welland Canal Parkways L2R 7K6. It is only a 15 minutes drive from the busy Niagara Falls and about 20 minutes from Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Each Tour starts with a 10/15 minutes training during which you learn the basics of how to ride a Segway. We then let you practice a few minutes at your pace in slow speed. Once your confidence builds up, we switch to the regular speed and let you practice again. We go on the Tour only once each participant is comfortable.

The Twin-Flight Locks Tour is our most popular option. We stop 6 times on our way up to the Niagara Escarpment to learn the rich history of the Welland Canal and its installations. The path that we use is smooth and fairly straight which makes it perfect for beginners. It is only shared with pedestrians and cyclists so traffic is limited.

After a break at Lock 4, we move forward to Lock 5 and 6 for a few pictures and more explanation. Then we come back using the same path we used earlier but without stopping so you can enjoy the Segway for longer period of times.  

Overview
Come and enjoy a Segway Tour only 15 minutes from Niagara Falls! The Welland Canal Tours start at the St Catharines Museum located at Lock 3. We offer a 1 hour and 2 hours option.
The Twin-Flight Locks is about 5 kilometers long (3 miles) and takes you all the way to Lock 5. Along the way you learn the history of the Welland Canal along with its latest Technological Advances.
The Lock 7 Tour is about 9 kilometers long (5.5 miles) and goes further, all the way to Lock 7 and its observation deck. On the way, you admire the Murals painted in 2006 which testify the rich history of the town.

The Port Dalhousie Tour starts at Jaycee Gardens. It is about 7 kilometers long (4 miles) and crosses the Rennie Park along the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta Rowing Facility. Then we travel around the old Port and its Marina, and visit Lakeside Park.

Amazing and Informative

Guillame was a wonderful and patient instructor and guide. I am a 75 year old fraidy-cat but with William’s guidance, I did it and loved it!

We had a tour between locks 3 and 4 along the Welland Canal pathway.

A great outing with my sons. Guillaume was a great instructor. We were up and running on the Segways in minutes. Guillaume provided an interesting tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would highly recommend the experience.
