The Pride of The Susquehanna Riverboat offers a great river experience and the Captain will fill you in on lots of local historical facts. We really enjoyed it. Nice for young and old alike.

We always like to visit the capital of a country or a state or a province, so we ventured to Harrisburg capital of the state of Pennsylvania. It was a Sunday, beautiful, sunny. The city felt dead, the Main Street was like a ghost town. Only one restaurant, we should say more like a Pub, open. We have to say... More

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 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
