Historic Boat Tours

Riverfront Fort Wayne Historic Boat Tours are your chance to learn more about our city’s heritage through its riverfront. Every other Sunday and Thursday, your guide Matt Jones, will lead you through a different riverfront history lesson by boat. Take the opportunity to sit back, relax and hear stories of yesteryear while being surrounded by our urban waters. Boat tours depart from the dock at Headwaters Park West with parking behind 301 Harrison St. No food or beverages are permitted on the tours. Ages 10+. Fee: $12 per person.
