Canal Tours Resume From Different Location
The lower part of the Augusta Canal is still empty of water as work continues on two bridges, but the Petersburg Boat tours will continue operation starting in September from the top part of the canal.
Tours depart from the dock at Savannah Rapids Park on Evans-to-Lock Road. Tickets include a voucher for free visit to the Augusta Canal Discovery Center at Enterprise Mill in downtown Augusta.
Tours are available Tuesday through Saturday mornings, Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
Augusta Canal’s Friday evening music cruises return in September as well with departures from the Savannah Rapids Park at 6:30 p.m. Cruises offer an array of live music on a relaxing one and a half hour scenic tour.
The tours are expected to resume normal seven-day-a-week tour operations October 1.
