Will it cost me anything to travel along the New York State Canal System?
Seasonal permits or two - day passes are required for all motorized vessels using the Canal System's locks and lift bridges. The cost of the passes and permits are determined by the size of the vessel. For pleasure craft, seasonal permits range from $25 to $100; two - day passes range from $5 to $20.
