My family loved riding on the Pride - the staff was all really kind (especially to the kids) and we enjoyed a relaxing ride and a beautiful view of the city from the water.

The Pride of the Susquehanna leaves from City Island and offers a cruise on the Susquehanna River. The views of Harrisburg are great!

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner cruise with good food. The fireworks from this view were awesome. The only negative is I didn't realize we wouldn't get the full river tour along with dinner and fireworks. I will have to go back for that!

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the basic ride is only about 45 minutes but during that time they tell you the history of the paddle-boat, the river and surrounding areas.

It starts with a review of the wines to be tasted followed by snacks of cheese and crackers and fruit. But the best part is the calm and soothing churn of the paddle wheels as it it plies it's way up and down the Susquehanna...More

This is a wonderful way to see a different view of Harrisburg. The complete tour is 45 minutes. While on the tour, through the PA system, you are treated with a brief history of Harrisburg. You can park on City Island for free. When parking,...More

During a business trip, several of my co-workers and I decided to explore the Harrisburg Riverfront by taking this trip. It was a beautiful day and we did enjoy the views of front street.
