Captain Dick & Fancy Nancy regret to inform friends and customers that they have sold the Spirit of West Virginia to a gentleman in Louisiana. After four seasons in the charter boat business we had to make the painful decision to sell our beloved sternwheeler because we both have full time jobs and kids and grandkids that live out of town. Owning a sternwheel boat fulfilled a life time dream and we were proud to play a small part in the river history of West Virginia especially during the Sesquicentennial, our 150th birthday!
Many thanks to all the loyal customers and volunteers who helped us achieve this dream. We both hope to see you all again somewhere on the Great Kanawha!

Located at the foot of the Dunbar toll bridge just off 10th street in Dunbar WV is an all new landing area for the Spirit of West Virginia. It boasts easy access an free lighted parking. Private charters are discounted for using this local facility. Dunbar was recently awarded a Federal Mainstreet Grant to improve the apperance of and develop the theme “City of Sternwheelers” designation. There are more authentic Sternwheel boats within the city limits than any other city in the world!
Due to the Thunderstorms we will need to reschedule the Bluegrass cruise!
