We had a Groupon coupon--$12 for two persons--normally adults $10, seniors $8 for this pleasant paddle boat tour. During the summer there appear to be 4 tours a day, at different times. After September 1, they only operate on weekends. We took the 12 noon tour from City Island in the middle of the river which has free parking. The... More

We had a beautiful day to go on the Pride of the Susquehanna for a 45 min river paddleboat cruise. Enjoyed the information about the history and the area (but the commercial for cruises was too long). Lots of families enjoying the day. Not enough seating up top for everyone, but they let us bring chairs from inside on the... More

The cruise was a great! The staff was friendly and extremely helpful -- once you located them on the island! There are no signs once you arrive on City Island to help you locate the boat and the ticket stand. There is a way to drop off handicapped visitors, however, we didn't know that until we walked halfway around the... More

Rode the pride with our grandsons and had a great day. We rode on the top deck since it was a cool day. Food and drinks available. Intercom system could be a little louder for those riding to learn the history of the area.

We were on a chartered event, so I'm not sure if all the wonderful things we experienced are available for every cruise. Arriving at City Island, parking is plentiful but may involve a very long walk with some stairs to get to the departure point. The excitement starts before the cruise begins, as a staff member came out to meet... More

Not particularly good for handicap challenged people. Getting to this venue was a challenge for people on walkers or who had mobility problems. Hilly! If you have a scooter ...ok....otherwise be advised that it will be challenging. They would be wise to have golf carts to escort passengers to and from their vehicles. A wise investment for them! I could... More

I have been on the Pride for approximately 4-5 cruises and have always found the staff pleasant, the cruise entertaining, and the overall activity well worth my time and money. The schedule can be found at the following location: http://harrisburgriverboat.com/ As a parent with a young child, the 45minute cruises provide a safe environment, which serves alcohol, and provides a...

I saw a previous review about the cruise that didn't happen and was hoping it was just a one off, but my 3 pm cruise on the 4th of July was canceled. It was a sunny day and weather was nice, but I arrived at the dock to find a sign that the cruises for the day were canceled due... More

While the band was excellent and the surroundings were pleasant, the cruise did not take place because the engine was not operational. This was announced by the Captain. Instead of offering a rain check for another cruise, two drink coupons for a maximum of $10 were supplied. Attendees had already been drinking for a couple of hours! When asked if... More

We spotted this cruise on one of the informational websites and thought it would be nice and something different. We had our grand children with us so we always need something to keep them occupied. We arrived in plenty of time before departure but one thing I found was the lack of signs directing you to the boat dock. I... More
