We took the hour-long sightseeing tour, arriving the required 30 minutes early for boarding. These have limited availability, so you'll have to plan ahead if you want to do it. We reserved online and had no trouble picking up our tickets. They have some snacks on board, and the kids can go visit the captain and maybe blow the horn.... More

We really enjoyed our sightseeing cruise on the riverboat! The weather was perfect for a trip down the river and we really enjoyed the view! A DNR person was aboard and told us about the history of Lewis & Clark's journey through the area. It was very hard to hear her, however. I would have enjoyed more light music playing... More

Just went on the Fireworks Cruise last Wednesday, July 3, 2013. We had a really good time. For $30.00 per person, very reasonable entertainment. We cruised up and down the river, seeing the sights while listening to music provided by a DJ. We did have to "cruise" a few more times than expected because we were waiting for the baseball... More

I have been on the River City Star several times over the years, but just found this page, so here goes with a review! The boat and facility make up the River City Star and Yacht Club. The boat is quite nice, but the facility is where the place shines. They frequently have themed parties. I have attended a couple... More

Each time I went on the evening cruises there was a reggae band playing. We had a BLAST! Day cruises are nice to take the family on...but we miss the band cruises.

It only took four years for me to discover this attraction but what a friendly bunch and relaxing tour. Have gone two times now, one private and one event. Would highly recommend for a fun group outing private or professional.

My family and I have done a sightseeing cruise twice now and have enjoyed it both times. The cruise lasts about an hour and on a beautiful warm day the breeze off the water is perfect! You get a little info on what you see, but not a ton. There is limited food and beverages available on board. Get there... More
