Slow down and relax. Take in the beautiful Susquehanna Valley River View with a ride in this paddlewheel Riverboat. The view from on the river is spectacular. Seeing the sunset on the river is breathtaking. Family friendly fun. All ages can enjoy.

I took my daughter for her first trip on the Hiawatha for the last ride of the season. She loved being on the boat, looking at the water and the shoreline. I will definitely take her again!

Very nice cruise - staff & crew were knowledgeable & friendly. Lovely day was had by all. We would definitely cruise the Hiawatha again. Scenery was breath taking.

The best part of this boat ride was the film they showed about the history of the area... it's fascinating to realize how and why Williamsport became the lumber capital of the world and produced several lumber barons during the 1800"s...the ride is relaxing but...More

This is a nice summertime activity in the city of Williamsport. The river is relaxing and many natural items to see along the way.
