Took the 1 1/2 hour tour. Good tour guide. Learned some history along the way. We saw several eagles and one great blue heron. Nice cruise for the price.

The 90-minute ride was just the right length. Our tour guide was fairly well informed and the boat was comfortable. We've taken similar trips like this along the Mississippi, and this ride was comparable. The $14.50-ish senior fare was appropriate. This wasn't a busy time...More

Looking for some info on the Saturday 3:30pm pizza cruise....is the pizza served in the dining area (similar style to the dinner cruise) or are guests free to roam between decks throughout the cruise and eat at their leisure?

Pizza is brought up on top for you if you choose to stay there. You get a couple pieces each. As for the price difference I would go get pizza after the trip. Cheaper.
