Augusata Canal Boat Tour and Picnic

Need something unique to do while in town? Take a tour of the Augusta Canal on a Petersburg boat. You can learn about some of Augusta’s history along the canal while observing birds and wildlife. My favorite thing about this tour is that you can bring along your own picnic basket and beverages to enjoy on the boat. This is an attraction you do not want to miss while you are in Augusta.  Call the Canal Interpretive Center at (706)823-0440 to make your reservations today!

Augusta Canal Boat Tour

It was a foggy October morning in Augusta, Georgia when we decided to take the kids on their first Petersburg Boat Tour along the Augusta Canal. They loved it!

Jake loves the water – although at 1½ years old everything that is water is “boat.” And William the 3 ½ year old got to be the Captain. The tour guide gave plenty of history that was lost on my two kids, but I enjoyed the stories. The boys were entertained with wildlife we saw – birds and turtles. But of course we kept an eye out for alligators.

There are several different types of tours besides the one hour tour we took – like moonlight tour and a music tour. I know groups have even rented the boats for family reunions and office outings. For more info on the boat tours, history and museum visit the Augusta Canal’s website. Because I know I am missing all sorts of important stuff.

But I have to say our tour was just long enough and the photo of Captain William will last forever!
