This used to be a great adventure but it seems to have gone downhill. The captain seemed inexperienced. The chairs were dirty. They stopped the boat on a shoreline (which has not occurred any other time I’ve been on) to let the captains chihuahua go...More

Riverboat needs some updates and paint in general. Trip down the river seemed a lot longer than the trip back. Seating could be updated as well. Overall a fun one time experience but on the pricey side ....

A trip up river and back. Snacks, adult beverages and soft drinks. Most of the scenery is river bottom land on one side and a few lake cottages on the other. Nothing remarkable.

The advertising makes this trip look much better than reality. There is zero interaction with the crew. Someone mumbled something over the intercom at the beginning and end of the cruise, but I could not understand it. They played the same CD over and over...More

This is probably good if you enjoy being on a floating bar filled with loud college age drinking party crowd. Not a fun 1-1/2 hour for us.

We always go on the river boat at least once a year and it never disappoints. It’s just a great way to unwind with family, friends or just as a couple. Staff is excellent and the bar surprisingly has a lot of variety for a...More

We were in Bismarck for a family reunion, and this was one of the activities. Our group of 25 or so took a 90 minute afternoon cruise. We got a group discount, which was nice. We sat outside under the sun shade on the upper...More

Took the sunset cruise. Nice little trip on the Missouri River. Worth the money, but don’t expect more than just a down and back. Gives a good feel of just how strong the river current is. I recommend the upper deck.

The boat ride was a pleasant way to spend an hour. We sat and watched the bank go by while trying (somewhat unsuccessfully) to hear a recorded "tour".

We were in town and drove right to the area. Its just a small hut and they take tickets as you walk up. Its a beautiful boat right up and down the Missouri river, but you will probably just have to drive there as we did... More
