We are 20 minutes away from the French Quarter.
The easiest way to find the boat dock, is to go to google maps and look for the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA. (If you zoom in on the lake, you can see the gondola dock) Facing the museum, the dock is to the right, on the lake.
Look for sign on Friedrich’s Ave. that says Boat Rentals
From downtown, (Canal St.) take the City Park Streetcar to the end of the line. Allow an hour. There is much construction going on downtown and the streetcar schedule has slowed.
Facing the New Orleans Museum of Art, we are over to your right, across the lake, at the boat dock. There is a walking trail around the lake.
