If you have been on the Belle over the last 15 years you have likely heard the story of how Captain Mat and his grandfather saved the Belle, sadly, Grandpa passed away on Thursday July 7th, 2022.  We may play a few special segments of our historical tour in his memory throughout the balance of the 2022 season 

The Belle Goes to McCrae Point Park, (14 Jones and Gifford Ave) Jamestown, NY

for the Fall Season!!!

 Saturday Sept 24th

Historical Tour on the Chadakoin River at 3 pm only today. (1 pm trip is pushed into the 3 pm due to low passenger count)

CB weather forecast… nice, warm and sunny for Saturday…highs in the mid 60’s will make this a great day for a river tour!  Part ecology, part history, part music makes this river tour lots of fun!!!  The Chadakoin River is a step back in time, you will see mother nature at her finest, largely unspoiled by man.

As the Chautauqua Season winds down (Cleveland schools and Pa schools are back in session), our ridership is greatly reduced.  The tours which are listed going forward in our fall schedule are built around preformed groups of 20 or 30, we then open the tour to the public.  It is our goal to run each and every trip which is listed as available, we would apologize if you are here for a few days and there is not a trip which you can get out on.  As always, should you absolutely have to go, we are more than willing to set up a private charter at the rate of $1500 for a 2-hour tour.  Thanks for your understanding!!!
