Augusta Canal Tour - National Heritage Area

Paddling is a popular pursuit on the Augusta Canal - Woof Woof!!
Revitalized Mills are a growing part of the canal tour
Kingfisher flying by - woosh!
Tourism is booming in Augusta these days, and going for a boat ride during an Augusta Canal Tour offers a close-up view of not only the old mill area, but the sprawling greenway and bike trail options. While the canal is not very wide, it is a wildlife magnet and I can report sightings of an otter, kingfisher, and turtle along with many kayakers on the water enjoying the gentle flow found in the Augusta Canal. I was surprised to learn that the technology revolution is now driving renovation at some of the old mills along the canal route, bringing economic revitalization.

Tour boats are low-rise to fit under the canal bridges!
