Riverfront Canal Cruises is doing Halloween bigger and better than ever by bringing you two nights of haunted boat tours on Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26, combined with a new daytime, family-friendly cruise option on Saturday.
“Camp Kanawha” is a special, two-night only, thrills-filled boat ride geared toward those 12 and older. The event, on the historic Kanawha Canal, features haunting tales from Richmond’s past along with frightening scenes of a summer camping trip gone wrong! This haunted campsite turned gruesome graveyard will be a nightmare come to life in our 20-minute tours.
Canal boats leave every half hour (on the hour and the half hour) from 5-9 p.m., with the last boats departing at 8:30 p.m. both nights. Recommended ages for the Camp Kanawha Halloween cruises are 12 and up.
Tickets for the evening Camp Kanawha cruises are $8, and we recommend that tickets are purchased online, in advance.
Children under the age of 12 will enjoy our family-friendly cruise option on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m., suitable for all ages.
