 ……….

River Tyme – De Pere is a 1953 Riverboat, 2 Levels, Full Bar & Restroom onboard. Minimum 30 Passengers, Maximum 49 Passengers.

Group Tour Options in De Pere:

Love Your River Group Tour:  A laid-back tour, with heavy narration focused on the history, environment, area geology, or a combination – hopefully close to reality, or at least made to sound so. Leaving from our home port in De Pere. Nice scenery to include wooded banks and nice homes & includes the closest thing we have to a castle in these parts! Options: Add in passage thru a hand-operated historic lock  — Option: Heavy narration done by professional tour guide, if your group wants to forgo narration – subtract $2 per person

$26  – 1.5 Hours
$31  – 2.0 Hours to include lock passage thru De Pere Lock 
$37 –  3.0 Hours to include lock passage thru Little Rapids Lock

$13 – per person to add in a Box Lunch on the boat includes a choice of sandwich plus chips, cookie and bottle of water

 

Fox River Canal and Lock System Package: Travel the waterway built at the turn of the century to create passage from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi. Lock through at the hands of the tender, just as you would have in the early 1900s. This is possible because we are fortunate to have one of the last two hand operated locks remaining in the U.S. Learn why it was built, how it was built, tour the home of the man who made it happen, learn why it failed to be the greatest water highway, and how the locals saved this piece of history.

This is the perfect choice for day and bus tour groups. The package includes a guided tour of Hazelwood Historic Home, a 2-hour cruise onboard River Tyme to include passage through the Lock in De Pere, and narration focused on the history of the Fox Locks System, and a very tasty box lunch. Minimum Guests – 31, Maximum Guests – 49. If you have less than 31, we will need to open the river cruise portion up to the public to help fill the boat, otherwise all will be the same.
