Channel Cat Water Taxi


Explore the majestic Mississippi river aboard the Channel Cat Water Taxi. Experience the power and mystique of the river as it flows east to west for one of only a few times over its length. Get a taste of the area once known as the Rock Island Rapids – considered the most dangerous section of the upper Mississippi. View the brochure.

 

Today, with the help of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the river has been dredged and a channel created to slow the flow of water. So, sit back and enjoy your journey on the river that once captivated young Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.
