Canal vs Seine River cruise

Is there another cruise to take in Paris besides the one on the Seine? Thought I heard something, but cannot remember the name. Any thoughts?

The Canauxrama tour on the Canal St Martin takes about two and a half hours. You see a really different part of Paris, from the Basin de la Villette, passing through four double locks to the Arsenal Marina or vice versa. It's a great way to give your feet a rest!! Being on a canal, you are higher than the river and you can see more either side.

The canal Saint-Martin, either on its way down the Canal towards the Seine (departs at Bassin de la Villette) or on its way up from the Seine (departs close to Musée d'Orsay) along the Canal Saint-Martin up to Bassin de la Villette.

Canauxrama offers these cruises, Paris Canal also has similar cruises.
