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.

Their grounds are nice and you can take a walk along the water while you wait for the boat. We were on a trip with 40 girl scouts which they did tell us while purchasing tickets. Unfortunately, they showed up late and we had to wait for them to eat before we could all get on the boat and leave. (They did not tell us they would be eating before we left). While on the boat they played some informational soundtrack. The sites were great but the trip was very short compared to other boat tours similar to this we had been on. I would probably go again to give them the benefit of the doubt without a large group.

The paddlewheel riverboat was a very unique looking boat with an upper and lower deck, and a huge red paddlewheel that the kids will love. The upper deck is open to the outside with guard rails all around, while the lower deck is enclosed and has tables set up for meals. Nothing fancy, but pleasant. There are restrooms on the lower level as well. The captain and staff are all very friendly, especially with the kids, and the ride is smooth and breezy.

The family fun night is advertised for kids of all ages, but be advised that it might not be the best setting for ages 3 and under. There is not a lot of room to move around, everything is adult sized, and the narrow flights of metal stairs to the upper deck are not gated off. There is no privacy for nursing infants. If a child has a meltdown there is no place to escape for a moment and no option of deciding to go home when you are out in the middle of the river. Additionally, consumption of alcoholic beverages purchased on board is advertised and encouraged, even during the family night. Just some things to consider if you are looking for a safe family outing.

It was a fun ride on the river on the Paddlewheel Riverboat. Family friendly and the price is right. I would do it again when we are in Williamsport. Beautiful scenery.
