Riverfront Canal Cruises

Riverfront Canal Cruises traces Richmond's roots back to George Washington, who first lobbied the Virginia General Assembly to create the city's canal system as a means of linking the coast to trade opportunities in the west. In 40-minute tours, covered boats glide down the James River and Kanawha Canal, granting passengers an up-close view of the waterways without having to mount a webcam on a duck. Throughout the trip, guides share old stories about the canal and the Canal Walk, broadening guests' knowledge of the area's rich heritage.

    “I loved this, but I would suggest that you need to check in before you board the ship. That was not on the groupon, and because of that we almost didn't make it on, being there were other people before us, but their party was too large to accommodate.”
