Booked this sunset cruise for my husband's Father's Day gift. It was a pleasant 3 hour cruise down Memory Lane. We used to live in Augusta and fished in the canal when we were newly married. We will celebrate our Golden Anniversary in August so it was great fun to see how it's changed and all the improvements which have... More

The boat tour of the canal that provided the water to power the mill is very enjoyable and informative. Very worthwhile for... More

Went with a group from my church and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The background of the canal and the worker's lives was fascinating. Loved the boat ride and took lots of pictures.

This tour is great. Very informative in a casual setting and gives history of area. The basic two hour tour costs $12.50. They also offer tours with different musical venues.The museum there is also interesting.

A great little tour in an open boat traveling up and down the canal with the tour guide giving details on the history and pointing out sites and wildlife along the way. It was very informative but, not so sure how smaller kids would do except for the fun of being on an open boat. The museum was a very... More

Anytime is good for the museum and the canal boat ride. Some of the best rides are the moonlight music cruises. Check the schedule for spring and fall dates. Bring your own snacks and drinks welcome on the boat. The music cruise is mostly for adults. The daytime trips are great for kids. There are lots of ducks and wildlife... More

This was a great field trip for the children, the museum has lots of cool stuff and even some interactive displays, we got to watch a sort film about Augusta and the mills before going on the boat. The boat tour (and guide) was very informative on the civil war history and the boat itself is very large with plenty... More
