Boat ride

Bought tickets from Groupon. Nice scenic ride. Limited seating. Beautiful afternoon to check out the area, picnic tables and trees for shade.

We were looking for somewhere to take my father-in-law for his birthday. We needed somewhere with a minimum of walking involved. This boat trip was perfect. Parking is about a 5 mionute walk from the boat. The ride lasts about 45 minutes, which was perfect. The river is very calm, with no rocking, so there was no chance of motion... More

This is one of the boat rides through Susquehanna river. Nice scenic view of Susquehanna. Live commentary history & areas through the journey. We enjoyed a relaxing evening trip

Don't think just because you bought tickets online, you have a reservation, and boarding passes it means you are getting on the boat, it doesn't! Anyone can just walk up and buy tickets at the booth and get in before you. You need to be there 45 minutes before the time to get a ticket. You will be told online... More

Lately we have done the beer and wine cruises. They are priced right and lots of fun. Worth looking into.

I have ridden the river boat several times, and, every time, I am almost lulled to sleep by the sound of the boat and the cool river breeze. This is a beautiful and scenic ride down the Susquehanna River, and; it is enjoyable for the whole family. Groupon often has discount tickets available so check before you go. There is... More

We've done various river boat tours/cruises here in the US and Germany and found this little ride every bit as delightful as some of the more grandiose ones. It was a rather warm day when we went but there are some shaded areas on the boat and the breeze on the river made for a comfortable ride. If you have... More

A nice ride on the river but that is about it. 45 minutes in length and the only commentary was really about the boat and the river itself. Nothing about the city nearby.

Very educational about the Area! Lots to do at City Island from the boat ride to the Harrisburg Senators Baseball Stadium to Kayak/Jet Ski rentals to running and walking... More
