  • The cruise was rescheduled 3 times because if it starts to rain they dont have the boat leave the dock. Never got a chance to get to experience the cruise. Hopefully your experience will be better than mine. The staff is very accommodating and friendly and it seemed like it would be great to experience. I'll definitely try again sometime in the future.
  • The boat operator did a terrific job explaining the history of the canal and its construction. Also, I learned a lot about the history of Richmond, Virginia during the boat operator's talk. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves learning about history, and especially for kids who are learning about American history in school. Canal tour is 40 minutes and it is in located downtown on the Canal Walk. Perfect location to include it in a day of sightseeing of Richmond's numerous attractions.
