Just sit back and relax

We go there every summer or fall to enjoy the ride. We especially enjoy the dinner cruises or mystery night cruises. They are a lot of fun and you get to meet some great people.

It's fun to... More

The tour was informative about Harrisburg but seemed a bit short. Would have liked to hear more about the history of the river.

We visited island many times. We came to see baseball and soccer games a lot of times. And this with visiting friends we got on the Pride. So pleasant and interesting on the hot summer evening.

Traveled with my husband. Totally loved this riverboat. Snacks and beverages are available on board or you can pack a light lunch. There is space to sit inside and outside. Bring along a light jacket since it can be cooler on the water.

Like traveling on the water? Well, you just might like the idea of jumping aboard the Susquehanna river boat. There are daily tours in the summer, and the ride is very relaxing. You can see a great view of the city as you travel slowing up the river. There are also reservations you can make, if you're hosting special festivities... More

Let's face it, Harrisburg is not a major US city but it is the capitol of PA. You could walk across the Susquahanna River in certain spots but you would miss the big picture. Harrisburg is a part of history and it will be described to you onboard this trip.

It is a nice narrated cruise on the River. It is very busy. Get tickets early dont wait til last minute you may not get on board. The City Island is an experiance. It is a day killer. If you are in town with not much to do this is it. Take the boat ride and then the Train Ride... More
