The Lewis and Clark riverboat is a great way to see the Missouri river. We took an evening cruise and it was very relaxing with outstanding views. The boat has seating on the inside for those enjoying a drink or food and on the outside for letting the wind blow through your hair. A great value, a fantastic view and... More

Make your reservation online at their website and arrive 30 minutes early if you want a spot on the upper deck. We were 20 minutes early and ended up on the lower deck. There's a bar inside on the lower deck, restrooms and air conditioning. We took the sunset cruise. Lasted 90 min. Bring cash, drinks and snacks are very... More

Was so looking forward to a sunset cruise when we took our mini vaca to Bismarck. No such luck. They only run certain cruises on certain days. So, if you’re hoping to add this to your agenda make sure to go to their website and check for reservations for whatever cruise you’re interested in before making it part of your... More

We were able to cruise on the riverboat for a recent wedding and it was amazing. It was a very hot day but the breeze off the water kept us cool. It was really fun to see all the boats and jet skis out enjoying the beautiful day. The cruise didn't quite take two hours and it was a great... More

I recommend this attraction for people looking for a way to slow down. It is a nice cruise down the river. I enjoyed looking at the houses along the river and the company of good friends. The boat goes very slow so you won't make it very far. However, it's something different to do. Bring your laid back attitude and... More

We had a great time. Everyone was super friendly and more then happy to help how ever they can. We went on the dinner cruise, there was more than enough pizza for everyone and I believe the boat was full. It is such a relaxing ride. It's not a place to learn anything about Lewis & Clark. It is just... More
