Whether you live in the area or are visiting this is a must do at least once. They have special things going on like dinner cruises that you can take advantage of if you wish. It is seasonal but you can take a cruise and catch a ballgame went the Senators (a double A team for the Nationals) are in... More

The boat boarded at 4:45 for the 5pm sailing. The main area has tables preset with salads and bread. Spaces are tight & some groups may be seated with other guests. They had service for about 68. Tables of 2 lined both sides and tables of 8 were in the center. We had pre-chosen our dinners of beaf tips or... More

We did the Murder Mystery Dinner Tour on the Pride on Friday Oct. 24th they titled it Hollow Weenie. We had never done anything like this before and had a great time, the food was good (my hubby wants me to try to make the dish at home) and the actors were entertaining. You need to make reservations early for... More

We recently did one of the pride of the Susquehanna's murder mystery dinner cruises. We had a wonderful time. The cast was entertaining and great to interact with. The first act was a little slow but they laid the ground work and it was entertaining in the end. The food was surprisingly yummy. I usually don't expect much out of... More

Had a beautiful evening cruise and informative wine tasting on a Sunday night. They have plenty of theme cruises including wine tastings, beer tastings, party rentals ... Look them up.

Ride an authentic diesel paddle wheel boat down the Susquehanna while getting a great view of riverfront Harrisburg and the west shore! Captain and crew were friendly, ride was smooth. View of the bridges and riverfront park. Nice ride!!! Was listed as a 45 minute ride. Would have loved longer but all in all a great value for the money.... More

The Pride of the Susquehanna is a nice quiet ride on a paddle boat on the Susquehanna River on City Island, Harrisburg, PA. This boat ride is reasonably priced. You can ride on the top deck in the open air or downstairs inside. We were on the top deck. You had a beautiful view of the city skyline. Overall -... More

It was a beautiful day on the river; it is just that the trip was so short. We went down the river 20 minutes and came back up the same route. There was nothing that you could not see from the dock. I would prefer to pay more and have a longer ride. Also, we printed out our tickets as... More

We went as a family of four and really enjoyed it. I did have a 2 for 1 coupon, so it was 20 for all of us to go, which was quite reasonable. The scenery is great, and the cheap beer on the boat was a plus. The kids enjoyed it was well.

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
