Two hour paddlewheel cruise down or up the Halifax river but a different view if familiar landmarks. $19.95 includes your choice of prime rib, sautéed shrimp, turkey and dressing, or Virginia ham.....and it's all good! A great outing if company is visiting!,

I loved the food and service! Most of all I enjoyed the lady that checked us in! My future son-in -law had an allergic reaction to something, and the lady had cortisone cream to help him! She didn't have to do that! She went above and beyond just to help! I couldn't have more pleased! It was just perfect all... More

We didn't even take the trip. We arrived :45 minutes early as recommended. We boarded and there was no where for the three of us to sit together. Finally squeezed into a table inside downstairs next to soda fountain. No where to enjoy the sights if there were to be any. We felt claustrophobic. We left before the ship departed.... More

The boat looks appealing with its fake paddlewheel. However, guests are jammed in all together. Alcohol is pushed and served abundantly. It gets loud. Smoking is permitted. The boat ride up the middle of the Halifax is BORING. An effort is made around the food. You have to serve yourself and walk down and up stairs. The bathrooms are clean.... More

Last minute decision to do this-and it was a good one. The dinner cruise was sold out-seems the boat show is starting. We opted to do the lunch cruise. There's a choice of meals-we had both the turkey and prime rib selections. Lynn liked her turkey, and the Prime rib was excellent!. Overall good meal-boat was very nice. Open bar.

The first time we went;the food was good although cold. The second trip,with our club, the food was awful. The prime rib was fatty and the turkey,I had was one small slice smothered in gravy. The only thing that was hot on the plate were the string beans. We will never do it again or bring out of town guest... More

My girlfriend and I were shown this deal by the hotel we were staying at. $20 seemed very reasonable for a 2 hour boat ride. We were very satisfied by everything. The food was good, they had a person who was pointing out all of the landmarks as we went by, and overall it was a very good time for... More

This is only 19.95 per person and that includes the ride/meal! This is a wonderful idea for any couple who wants a great time! Remember to purchase the two dollar cup before you board! Mixed drinks are offered for a fair price! They also have prize giveaways!
