This was my first trip on the riverboat to Riverbend. And by far the best way to get there. You don’t have to worry about sitting in traffic there and home. There’s a full bar and the service was great! My friends and I are...More

My husband and I took one of the riverboats to the Riverbend venue for a concert. It was a fun atmosphere. Pretty views on the way there and back. Bar service available. We'd definitely do it again and avoid concert traffic!

Took the riverboat over to Paul Brown Stadium the staff was very pleasant and polite. Communication on the boat regarding safety was A+. Cost was affordable. I would highly recommend this transportation vessel to attend and Red's or Bengals game.
