Wheel Fun Rentals Introduces Swan Boat Rentals at Canal Walk in Indianapolis

For Immediate Release:
May 11, 2022

Indianapolis, IN – Wheel Fun Rentals is excited to announce the addition of their iconic Swan Pedal Boats at Indy’s Downtown Canal Walk. Conveniently located in the heart of Downton Indianapolis, visitors and locals will now have the opportunity to enjoy the water by swan boat! Swan Boats have launched and are now available to rent!

Swan boats are a classic, iconic piece of American history dating back to 1877 when they were first established in the Boston Commons, and then later spread to neighborhood lakes around the U.S by the early-to-mid 1900’s.  Swan boats are one of few experiences that have changed so little over time, and now a whole new generation can practically replicate the experience of these iconic boats. Sharing those memories with the young ones makes for an even more special voyage.

Each swan pedal boat seats up to five guests, making them perfect for family outings, birthday parties, group activities and more. All boats come equipped with a Bimini top for sun shade (not pictured). Guests are also welcome to bring food and drinks aboard the swan boats (No alcohol or large coolers allowed.) Plus, life jackets are included with every rental to ensure you’ll have a safe, smooth ride.

“We’re thrilled to be able to refresh our fleet of boats on the Canal Walk,” said Marc Dixon, Wheel Fun Rentals’ General Manager. “We have offered pedal boat rentals for years and decided it was time to upgrade to something a bit more unique – we’re so excited to offer Indianapolis residents and visitors a bit of nostalgia with our new swan boat fleet.”

Swan boat rentals at Wheel Fun Rentals at Canal Walk are $42 per hour, per boat and are open 7 days-a-week through Labor Day, for complete hours of operation and information on kayak rentals also available on the Canal Walk, visit

Specialty cycle and bike rentals are also available right around the corner at Wheel Fun Rentals in White River State Park, which offers specialty cycles, including the flagship 4-wheel Surrey, 2-wheel bikes and kids’ bikes! For more information about Wheel Fun Rentals in Indianapolis, visit
