Dinner and a Cruise

Dinner cruises aboard the Josiah White II are unique not only in the Lehigh Valley, but to the state of Pennsylvania. Each of our scheduled cruises has a different theme, with dinner and music reflecting an aspect of the theme. There is always an introduction to Lehigh Canal history before our main program gets underway.

The two-level, 20’x50′ Josiah White II has room for up to 60 Dinner Cruise passengers. The boat is equipped with modern electric and sound systems as well as two bathrooms on the lower level, one being handicapped equipped. There is a lift for physically impaired people to access the lower level where the bathrooms are located.

We’ve added two Sunset Cruises this year.  Take a leisurely 1-hr cruise amidst the golden light of sunset.  Sip sangria and savor delightful tapas.
