Please note that all on-water programs are weather-dependent.
Row a St. Lawrence Skiff
Those seeking a more tranquil experience on the water can take a quiet row in a traditional St. Lawrence Skiff on the protected waters of French Creek Bay. From June 27-August 30 (limited availability in June & late August, call ahead), attendants are on hand 12PM-4PM on weekdays, and 10AM-4PM on weekends in the Skiff Livery to help you get on the water. Use of the skiffs is included with Museum admission, but donations to help with the upkeep of the boats are gratefully accepted.
Our skiffs vary in size, but 1-3 people is a comfortable crew for one boat.
Community Rowing & Sailing

If you are not yet a rower or sailor, we will have plenty of experienced staff and volunteers onsite to take you out on the water. Note: In the event of inclement weather Tuesday night, Community Rowing & Sailing will take place on Wednesdays. Postponement decisions will be made at 12pm day of and notice will be posted on our social media accounts or call 315.686.4104 to confirm whether Community Rowing & Sailing has been postponed.
