We have been to Williamsport to see the Little League World Series since 2011 but have never ridden the Hiawatha. It was a nice ride on the river for about an hour. Two of the Little League teams were on the boat with us. They...More

This was a church outing. Despite the rainy weather, the boat was full, the crew was very friendly and hospitable, the ice cream sundaes were ample and it was an enjoyable evening.

The boat is very nice with seating for about a 100. Snack bar with adult beverages for sale. Our ride was an hour and that's was enough. Got to see some beautiful scenery and enjoy the nice weather.

The Hiawatha River Boat Cruise is well worth the price. The hour long narrated boat ride is both relaxing and interesting. When you add a friendly and knowledgeable crew into the experience, the result is a trip that will be enjoyed by everyone.

I took my three granddaughters-aged 9, 5, and 3- on the family cruise and had the best time. There were coloring and bingo with prizes for the kids and make your own sundaes. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We will be back.
