Georgetown Heritage

Washington DC's Only Canal Boat Tour

The new canal boat is available for programs and events in 2023. In partnership with the National Park Service, the boat experience educates and engages DC residents and visitors. Each one-hour tour covers the fascinating history, technology and culture of the Canal and its diverse people over the past two centuries, and includes plenty of time to relax on calm waters. Modeled on designs for historic packet boats once used on the C&O Canal, the new build includes modem amenities and materials such as electric motors and an onboard restroom.

Our boat was featured in CBS Saturday Morning, and was a finalist for WorkBoat Magazine's Boat of the Year!
