For the first time in more than a decade, Georgetown Heritage is welcoming a new C+O Canal boat to Georgetown!
Boat rides are available Wednesday - Sunday, 10 am - 4 pm, through October 2022, offering one-hour guided historical tours along the first mile of the C+O Canal National Historical Park (NHP). Visitors will learn about the fascinating history, technology and culture of the Canal, and the surprising stories of the people who lived, worked and played here over the past two centuries. The docked boat is also available for private event rentals in the evening.
The new Canal boat program is part of Georgetown Heritage's multi-year restoration and revitalization efforts in partnership with National Park Service, the District of Columbia Government and the Georgetown Business Improvement District.
