Canandaigua Lake

The name Canandaigua is derived from a Native American word which means “chosen spot”. It was the site of the principal village of the Seneca Indians and is the legendary birthplace of these “People of the Hills”.

We have several possible launch sites in Canandaigua, all of which offer an impressive view straight down Canandaigua Lake. We typically meet at the Mercy Flight station, located at the Canandaigua Airport, on Brickyard Rd.

Centrally located in the heart of the Finger Lakes, Canandaigua is home to CMAC, Roseland Water Park, the New York State Wine and Culinary Center, and great B&B’s, including the Chalet of Canandaigua.
