Lock # 10 & Y Bridge Kayak History Tour

Calling all history buffs, outdoor adventurers, and anyone who loves a unique experience! Dive into Zanesville's rich past with Pea Ohana Watersports' and Riverdog Adventure's exciting Lock # 10 & Y-Bridge History Tour series! This summer, we're offering a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore the legendary Y-Bridge and witness the marvel of Lock # 10, a double lock system that's still in operation over 170 years after it was built! This event was a fan favorite in 2022 and now with the recent reopening of the lock after a YEAR LONG repair by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources we are excited for the tours return.

That's right, history comes alive as you kayak along the scenic Muskingum River canal, paddling right under the world-famous Y-Bridge and through Lock # 10. Our knowledgeable guides will share fascinating stories about the bridge's unique design and construction, as well as the importance of Lock # 10 in Zanesville's industrial past. Witness firsthand how this engineering marvel continues to function today, allowing boats to navigate the change in water level.
