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

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
