It's enjoyable to ride across the big river and catch a breeze on a warm evening, but unless you are going to the riverboat gambling place there isn't really a destination, though there are 2 stops. One is just a big gift shop for the riverboat people, mostly junky stuff in there. And the other is a landing for an... More

This is a great way to get across the mighty Mississippi and ride your bike up and down the bike path. There are several places to drop off and pick-up the Channel Cat Taxi in Davenport or Moline so go for a walk to the next pick-up. It's nice to be on the river and see the city from a... More

What a Deal - only $6 for an all day ride! And the boats run about every 15 - 30 minutes making 4 stops. I had not been to the Village of East Davenport for a while - where are all the shops? Seems there were several more ~ 8 years ago? It was a fun ride anyway!

I have been on the Channel Cat Taxi and can tell you it is ery enjoyable when the summer weather is sweltering in the Quad Cities. You can stop and walk around each of the places the Channel Cat goes too and then get on the next one when you are ready to go to the next stop.

The Channel Cat makes such a tremendous accent to the riverfront and the Missisippi. The viewing lessons taught to children (and adults as well) are outstanding. The staff helpful and caring. The Cat is a restful trip and a must do for all.

We can't wait until the Channel Cat runs again. It is so fun to go out into the Mississippi to travel across to Iowa. If you plan it just right, you can have lunch or shop and then enjoy the trip across the river. The folks on the water taxi are so very nice. What a beautiful way to enjoy... More

The Channel Cat Taxi is a great way to see the section of the Mississippi River that travels through the Quad Cities. If you visit the John Deere Pavillion you can walk across the street and behind TGI Friday's and catch a ride. It stops at a number of different places, but my favorite is the Village of East Davenport.... More

The public transit system in the QC area has a lot of room for improvement... CHANNEL CAT TAXI to the rescue!!! This is a great way to view the river along the QC and a great way to travel up/down the river.

The cool thing about the Channel Cat is you can take your bikes on board. There are really nice bike paths on both sides of the river so you can go from one area to the next. The price is an all day cost so you can come and go whenever. This is a great way to see the river... More
