Charter and Rental Rates

Rates are $300 per boat for a one-hour outing, $500 per boat for a full-length, three-hour trip to the Headgates and back. Charters may bring aboard refreshments of their choice. The staff of the Augusta Canal can help you customize other packages and itineraries for your group's needs.
