“A mellow outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Took our Seniors group to Canal Fulton for the day.The half-hour video before the boat ride was just full of interesting historical facts. The boat ride was quiet and relaxing and easily accommodated the 20+ of us. The narrator was very informative and added to the enjoyment. Almost everything worth seeing in the town is within easy walk. Stopped for Oser's ice cream after the boat ride and it was the perfect end to really pleasant outing. Highly recommend.

“A worthwhile visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

We rode the Helena III on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was an enjoyable outing. A interesting commentary was provided along the way. Saw a great blue heron! There was an informative video in the visitor's center. Tickets were $8 each for an adult.

“Quiet ride back into history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

If you like history and a relaxing time this is something that is worth the time to do. A short movie was shown about the history of the town before getting onto the canal boat. The ride took an hour. The gentleman talking about the history of the canal and boat was great. He knew his stuff and when he broke out his banjo and harmonica and played the old songs I knew I had made the right choice by going there.
