Channel Cat Water Taxi

Channel Cat 2019 Season

Welcome aboard! 

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.

The Channel Cat Water Taxi provides three (3) open-air passenger ferryboats on the Mississippi River. Service is generally provided from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, with additional weekend service through October (weather permitting).
