Chartering the Josiah White II offers a truly unique experience for your event


As one of the last mule-drawn canal boats in the country, the Josiah White II is a unique venue to celebrate a special occasion, host an outing for employees or clients, or simply treat your group to an after-hours cruise along the beautiful Lehigh Canal.  The Josiah White II is not just a venue, but a historical experience that your guests will remember.

The Josiah White II is available for charters from May through October during daylight hours at times that do not conflict with its regular operations.  It can comfortably hold 65 adults (larger groups may be accommodated depending on the type of event and group composition).  There are two charter cruise lengths available:

One-hour: $450

Two-hour: $725

If you are interested in chartering the Josiah White II, please read our Charter Policies for additional information and fill out the Canal Boat Charter Application Form below.
