Everyone is greeted by the actors and taken to their seats. Meal begins quickly and act begins prior to even leaving dock. A great evening of relaxation and good food.

We live in the UK and following an organised Heritage tour we travelled to Harrisburg to visit our niece. I'd seen the Pride listed in TA and thought an evening cruise with a meal sounded like fun. The four of us were shown to our table by friendly staff, The boat was full as there was a large party, a... More

The total cruise time was two hours. Everyone had assigned seats and my grandson and I had some of the best seats on the boat. We were on the side at the front of the boat and there was a long bench seat on the back. When the play was being acted, I sat beside him on the bench and... More

They're doing more of the wine and cheese cruises than in past years. The speaker gives a 5-10 minute overview of your 4 wines for that night then you are free to roam the boat and snack on cheese, crackers and fruit. They're no longer running out of snacks like in the past and this year they have a few... More

Storms cooperated and held off until after the cruise even had a few stars peak thru. Definitely enjoyed the night cruise over hot sunny cruise. The Harrisburg City lights and the decorated bridge were very pretty. It is a paddle boat so if you are looking for a slow leisure ride this is for you.

This was our 2nd trip on the Pride and we've really enjoyed it both times. As far as taking a boat ride goes, this is one of the best values I've found so far. Don't forget to get a $2 coupon from their website! One of the best parts was the captain speaking about 20 minutes before the boat ride.... More

It was a beautiful day for taking this 45-minute paddleboat cruise on the Susquehanna from City Island in Harrisburg. There were only seven passengers on our tour. The captain gave a talk prior to the tour about the history of the Susquehanna and the boat. During the tour, the information was only taped, and did not include specific information about... More

Cheap 45 minute trip around City Island. We went on a sunny Saturday, had a few beers (for purchase on the boat), and enjoyed the views. Look online, there's usually discounted ticket coupons floating around out there (try the Harrisburg/Hershey Tourism website).
