Discover Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park Aboard the Blackstone Valley Explorer Riverboat!

Join us as our 40-passenger tour boat brings you along for an intriguing and relaxing 45 minute long nature cruise down the Blackstone River. Come see the beauty of our nation’s hardest working river and learn its ecology and rich history. You will hear stories of the people from the entire Blackstone Valley, and may even get a chance to see the swan, heron, hawks, and turtles that live along this renewed waterway.

We're ready to launch the Explorer for the 24th season on the Blackstone River. Over the last 23 years, the Blackstone Valley Explorer riverboat has brought hundreds of thousands of people on board, both young and old, to see the Blackstone River from a fresh perspective…to learn and discover a place that was once forgotten.

Each trip is a one-of-a-kind experience for you and your family to enjoy!

Great for private charters too!
