My family loved riding on the Pride - the staff was all really kind (especially to the kids) and we enjoyed a relaxing ride and a beautiful view of the city from the water.

The Pride of the Susquehanna leaves from City Island and offers a cruise on the Susquehanna River. The views of Harrisburg are great!

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner cruise with good food. The fireworks from this view were awesome. The only negative is I didn't realize we wouldn't get the full river tour along with dinner and fireworks. I will have to go back for that!

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the basic ride is only about 45 minutes but during that time they tell you the history of the paddle-boat, the river and surrounding areas.

It's an easy walk no hills just a short ramp onto the ship. There are handicapped parking spaces.
