To mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, we have closed the National Canal Museum and offices of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Our staff continues our mission-driven work from home. We hope you and yours will stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails!×
Ahoy there mateys!
It’s time for all ye land lubbers to step foot upon me canal boat to get ye sea legs on the Lehigh Canal.
The Josiah White II canal boat sure is a beauty. Take a voyage and learn about the history of the regional canals. But if ye don’t follow me code of conduct, ye walk the plank and end up in Davey Jones’ Locker.
On Saturday September 19, in honor of International Talk like a Pirate Day, we will be offering pirate themed canal boat rides at Noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Free mango ice cream will be served and scavenger hunts for lost treasure will be held throughout the afternoon.
Come dressed and talking like a pirate and you’ll receive a $2 discount off the normal cost of a boat ride. Pirate families receive a $2 discount for adults and $1 discount for each little marauder over the age of three. Boat tickets also allow entry into the National Canal Museum, a treasure-trove of 19th century canal and industrial exhibits and a subsidiary of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
All aboard the Josiah White II for a ride into ye yonder!
