If you have never checked off a ride on the "big river" from your bucket list, here is your chance. This is a one hour trip up and down the river in front of Hannibal on a paddle boat with some interesting facts about the area presented by the Skipper. You can sit inside or out and there are some... More

We certainly enjoyed the afternoon riverboat cruise (not the dinner cruise) this past weekend. The weather was chilly, but we soon went inside, even though we had our winter coats on! The scenery was interesting and good to see from the river, but we wish the time on the river could have been longer. The captain's information imparted over the... More

We signed up for the evening cruise. When I went to order tickets on line, I noticed there was a cruise only on deck without dinner for $25. Since we know what food on these boats tend to be like, we opted for the cruise only. We were happy we did, as we got to sit topside and watch the... More

We did the 90 minute sightseeing cruise in the early afternoon. Staff was pleasant. Took awhile to get going. Wish it would have been longer-maybe 2 hours?- to cover a bit more of the River. We didn't get to go very far. Captain gave some interesting points. Splurge for the flashy glasses and specialty drinks-pricey but fun and tasty on... More

The weather was just perfect for our cruise and dinner- that made it worth reviewing. There really isn't much to see on the river in this area- they pointed out one site and that was it. Perhaps if we weren't doing the dinner cruise- they would give more local history. But we were to busy eating. The food was ok-... More

Food was good. Entertainment was a wonderful jazz band. Very relaxing trip. We went outside after dinner. The weather was great and fun sailing down the river. Service was friendly and alcohol isn't cheap but good variety.

Parents and kids both had fun. We saw a bald eagle in the tree down the river. Loved the scenery and the narration. The crew was wonderful. Had a good seat. It would be really hard not to get a good seat. You set on the upper deck in plastic chairs. We did not do the dinner cruise. I would... More

We took the one hour scenic cruise at 4 p.m. We had a little excitement because a storm came through and we had to nestle in to the shore till it blew over. The dark clouds were awesome and the rain was of short duration.......but I got some fabulous photos! The captain was entertaining and the beer was cold. It... More

OMG =] our family had so much fun sitting inside the airconditioned riverboat and relaxing. We ordered 2 sodie pops, a beer and a water. Then we all headed outside to take in the great weather, take some photos, walk around the deck, people watch, sight see, etc. We had so much fun learning about "Falling Rock" and the legend... More

We took an 11:00 a.m. cruise (not the dinner cruise). This was a very relaxing cruise on a hot late morning. It wasn't an especially information filled cruise, but the captain was knowledgeable about the things he talked about. He was very professional along with his crew. If you are looking for a quiet activity to relax, you can definitely... More
