Steam-boating on Canyon Lake
The Dolly Steamboat has been managed by the Grimh family for 25 years. The boat was named after its initial proprietors, Dolly and Paul Kennedy. They began doing tours in 1983 until 1987 when the Grimh’s bought the steamboat. Even though the Dolly didn’t reach the waters until the 1980’s, people were enjoying boating on the lake since 1925. The first boat to hit the waters that year was the 35 foot long S.S. Geronimo. With its 35 horsepower engine, it traveled at a rate of 15 miles an hour. This boat carried around 50 commuters with the 5 man crew aboard. The Dolly is much larger and can handle 142 people along for the ride and moves at a faster pace.
