The Channel Cat Water Taxi is a fun trip on the Mississippi River any day of the week. The views of the Quad Cities from the river instead of only from land or a bridge are totally different and surprising. The boats are safe and the crews are polite and informative.

This past weekend I took visiting family on the Channel Cat. My first adventure and I was impressed! Great value and courteous staff. Beautiful views one can only see from the river. I would go again.

What a fun way to spend a morning, afternoon, or all day on and near the river. Affordable and well run, the crew of each craft are professional and cheerful. There are interesting destinations to discover at each stop, or just stay on for the river ride.

Don't miss the opportunity to go on the Channel Cat during the summer for a leisurely ride on the Mississippi. You can have lunch across the river at TGIF or make a visit to John Deere Commons. A must for visitors of the Quad Cities!

The Channel Cat makes for a fun day. Hop on and off at different locations to shop, eat, or walk around. Give it a try.

This is a water taxi, that I caught at the pier right below our hotel. Nothing special, but it was only $6 for the day, and it was great to get out on the water and see a bit more of the area.

This was very enjoyable. I liked the fact that you could get off at different stops and get back on the next one. Everyone was very courteous. Great family fun.

We took the recommendation from a person at the Buffalo Bill museum in LeClaire and it was perfect on this warm summer day. Liked the idea that you can stop at any of the 4 stops and get back on,your $6.00 ticket is good all day and they were right on schedule. Great

wanted to take a boat ride to see qc from the river, didn't want to spend a fortune. these boats have large boarding ramps that make it easy for handicap people to board with walkers or wheel chairs, you can bring a bike also. There is the boat captain and a deck hand who sells tickets, helps people on and... More
