2020 St. Helena III Public Rides Schedule:


(updates for the 2021 season will be posted as they are available)


The St. Helena III Canal Boat is pulled by two draft horses, and departs from the Port of Canal Fulton in St. Helena Heritage Park for a one-hour ride down the Ohio & Erie Canal.   A historian on board provides information on the history of the canal, the boat and the area.

Weather-Permitting: Canal boat rides can be cancelled during dry season due to low water levels or during heavy storms.

The City of Canal Fulton is pleased to announce that we now own and operate the St. Helena III Canal Boat.  The Canal Fulton Heritage Society transferred ownership of the canal boat, horses, and related equipment to the City in February 2015.  The City had been operating the canal boat for the Heritage Society since 2009.

The Canal Fulton Canalway Center is a seasonal visitor center and home to the St. Helena III Canal Boat.  At the center, you’ll find background and orientation to the city, along with plenty of parking.  There is also a playground at St. Helena Park as well as a pavilion that is available for rental (see Parks & Rec Page).
