Status: in use

A boat ride is a type of attraction=* where people board a boat, are taken for a short trip and returned to their startpoint, often faring via nice views with a guide giving some historical background. The boat trips are never functional.

These boat rides are typically found in historical city centers, near natural features such as fords or in theme parks. When used in a theme park, this tag should only be used for the gentle attractions.

How to map

Draw a line along the course of the boat trip. This line receives the tags attraction=boat_ride.

Other interesting tags that might be useful are name=*, bicycle=*, fee=* with charge=*, duration=*, roundtrip=* and contact information such as website=*, phone=* and email=*

Add roundtrip=no if people can get off on other locations then their departure location.

To the places to get on or to get of, amenity=ferry_terminal with tourism=attraction is used.
