I am posting this here as well so I can start getting the word out.

In conjunction with the Gateway Clipper Fleet, Anthrocon is once again offering two Fursuit-Friendly Cruises. 

  • An Afternoon cruise will be offered on Thursday, July 5th. 
  • A Sunset cruise will be offered on Friday, July 6th.
  • Boarding will take place at the Convention Center Riverfront Plaza.
  • Ticket prices will be $19.99 each and space will be limited. 
  • A complimentary bottle of water will be offered to all passengers and long straws will be supplied for use by fursuiters.
  • The boats have both open decks and closed air conditioned decks so the cruises will be sailing rain or shine.
  • You do not need a con badge to board the cruise. However, you will need your cruise tickets for boarding, whether it be in hard copy or electronic format.

They do not include dinner.  They are sightseeing cruises that will last for 1 hour.

Nicona's map shows you the Riverfront Plaza if you close in very tight with street view (the snow and ice shown in the photo should not be a problem during Anthrocon).  Unfortunately, it doesn't really show you how to get there.

Easiest: As you approach the Convention Center from the direction of the Westin, follow the curvy path leading down through the water feature (waterfalls).  The docking area will be directly in front of you when you exit.

Harder:  Walk like you're going to the Convention Center, but don't enter.  Cross the street continuing toward the river (WAIT FOR THE LIGHT!  IT'S A BUSY ROAD!).  The pavement on the other side of the road will only go to the right.  That path will turn to the left to intersect the Riverwalk,  Turn left and go down the ramp.  You will end up in the same place as the curvy path, which will be to your left.

Both ways are handicap-accessible: I make no claims for the boarding of the cruise ship.
