Our three venues provide a whimsical experience for guests

The I&M Canal Boat provides a whimsical experience for guests and is the ideal venue for capturing the moment. It features an open-air upper deck that seats 45 passengers, an enclosed cabin that comfortably seats 67, plus a restroom and electric motors for as-needed use. Your guests will enjoy a leisurely ride on the historic Illinois & Michigan Canal May through October.
