We make a point of riding the Channel Cat atleast once every summer! Great way to see different parts of the QCA without having to drive to each stop! Give yourself plenty of timeto enjoy the various stops!

There are several joining points on both sides of the Mississippi River which allow you to get on and off without difficulty. Easy access to landing areas. Plenty of places to walk, sit or eat on both sides.Very affordable for families.
