Good value for a short ride on the Susquehanna River. Trip narration is intetesting and provides historic context. Worth spending time around City Island and even walking over the foot bridge to/from the city.

This was the perfect excursion for a weather-perfect day. (Not saying that it wouldn't also be enjoyable in rain or nippy temps, for there's plenty of opportunity for viewing through windows.) Two of our young grands had a ball. The staff was cordial and welcoming as they mingled with their guests. There was plenty of room to move around and the crowd was so friendly. It's always relaxing to glide on placid water. The boat is well maintained and clean. Prices are more than reasonable. Since it docks on City Island, we took advantage of other activities there. Nothing exciting, but informative, enjoyable, laid back. My only complaint is that the trip is so short. I wish there was an option for a longer cruise that would go upriver a bit.

It was a beautiful summer day, and we really enjoyed the fairly short (45 minutes) boat ride. Due to my mobility issues we stayed on the deck below, and we were able to see very well from there and to hear the audio clearly.
Getting to the boat was a nightmare though. We had never been to City Island before, and we didn't realize that we had to pass so many other attractions before we would reach the landing.
Our cruise left on a Sunday at 1 p.m., and at the same time there was a Pow Wow going on and a baseball game. By the time we got past all of that our boat was about to leave without us. We couldn't find any handicapped parking, and so I had to walk quite a lengthy distance to reach the boat.
We would still take another cruise and maybe even visit City Island for a ball game, but we would definitely get more information about what's going on there beforehand, and we would allow for more time to get to our destination.

We decided to go on this river ride as it said beautiful views of Harrisburg from the water. Location has free parking , pretty handicapped accessible if you stay on first level which is Air-conditioned. Upper deck is reachable by two side stair cases but is rather small in size. Boat ride is narrated but you can only hear it inside the downstairs. It is one of the last steam propelled paddle boats. You may take food and drink on board. The views were not that great but we enjoyed the ride.

The river boat is about 30 years old but does not show it’s age. The speaker system was a little hard to hear and the narrative was less than adequate.

The address mentioned is correct however when you click on “directions” on this app it takes you to the wrong destination. So just type in your navigation system / phone the address mentioned.

My husband and I have now taken two murder mystery dinner cruises on the boat. What an enjoyable time of food and entertainment! The boat is cozy, comfortable and clean. Staff is helpful, pleasant and friendly. The cast is delightful, enegetic and funny. Both times we also had interesting conversations with fellow "travelers!" Unfortuantely, we were unable to leave the dock due to high winds. However, we were given complimentary tickets to take a free 45 minute boat ride at a later time. We will happily visit again!
