Ride the Canal Boat

National Canal Museum - Ride the Canal Boat


Travel Back In Time

The 48-ton Josiah White II canal boat plies the waters of old Section 8 of the Lehigh Canal in Hugh Moore Park. Our trained and authentically-dressed crew interprets the story of the anthracite canals and the people who worked and lived on them. Our two mules – Hank and George – tow the boat on a 45-minute trip from the National Canal Museum to the Locktender’s House and back.

The National Canal Museum is open for tours from 11:30 am until 4:30 pm. Canal boat tours are 45 minutes long and leave the dock at 12, 1, 2 and 3PM, Weekends: June 3 to June 11; Wednesday through Sunday: June 14 until October 1; Weekends: October 6 to October 29. The boat does not sail on Mondays and Tuesdays.
