Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Water Bus Service did not operate during the 2021 season. We hope to resume service and we look forward to seeing you in 2022.

Enjoy convenient river transportation to 5 city docks provided by Splash Dash Water Bus. Servicing each dock about every 15 minutes, The River Spirit navigates through the centre of Winnipeg along the historic Red and Assiniboine Rivers.


The River Spirit operates throughout July and August on a regular schedule with service to The Corydon Avenue Village, The Manitoba Legislative Building, The Forks, Norwood, The French Quarter and The Exchange District.

Fare is to be paid on the boat. Waterbuses do not have change onboard.
Please bring exact change for the waterbus.

One way fare from any dock to any other dock is $4.00.
Day passes are available for $20.00 per person. This allows passengers using the day pass to travel by water bus as many times as they like during that day
