Public Cruises on River Tyme Too – Appleton:
We found her along the side of the road in Athelstane, with a For Sale Sign on her, waiting for us. She is also a wonderfully built, one-of-a-kind ….. canal boat. She was created in 1981 right here in Wisconsin, in La Crosse. Her entire life was spent in the Peshtigo River System giving public cruises, or the fields of Peshtigo when her owners needed a break. That is, until we found her in Spring of 2017. She might be shy about having big city folk onboard – please visit and reassure her we are plenty friendly! Your questions are hopefully mostly answered here.
Location & Route:
181 RiverHeath Way in Appleton. That’s the boat’s location, home dock and pick up and drop-off point!
Located in Appleton, just north of Lake Winnebago, is River Tyme Too’s home port. She is docked just below the College Avenue Bridge, at RiverHeath – a redeveloped paper mill site now housing condos, coffee shops, restaurants, retail shops and a new hotel. Most of the time, our captains will be traveling downriver to Kimberly/Little Chute and back. Every once in a while we will head thru the Cedars Lock and go all the way to Little Chute, or go thru the 4 Appleton Locks. See this pretty stretch of the Fox River, with all of its varied landscape.
We offer many different tours to match a variety of interests.
When it is time to get down to the boat, the easiest way to find us is to head to the Banta Bowl, go down the hill and turn right, go past two of the three RiverHeath complexes and head toward the river. It is difficult to see us because our roof barely peaks up above the grass on the high shoreline. Parking is a challenge at times – keep hunting for the spots, they will show up in one of the 3 or 4 lots around the buildings.
