We enjoyed a delightful little riverboat cruise on the Hiawatha yesterday. The boat was clean and comfortable, and the crew were very friendly. We spent our entire time just relaxing at a table on the upperdeck, and the breeze and shaded parts of the boat made it quite comfortable on one of the hottest days of the year. The cruise... More

This is a fun little adventure up the Susquehanna and back. Lasts about an hour. Snacks and drinks available for purchase on board and reasonably priced. Crew is really nice. We really enjoyed it.

my good friend had her 50th birthday celebration on Hiawatha at night--with friends and family it was a wonderful time-the staff was exceptional and we all had a great time...

A relaxing way to meet with friends. A group of business associates had a great time talking, connecting and relaxing while having dinner and looking at the scenery unfolding along the way. We had beautiful weather and a lovely sunset to watch as we cruised.

On a nice sunny fall day we had a family outing which was very relaxing. Everyone on board was very nice. There is also a park where we took a picnic lunch before we boarded. Good price, nice atmosphere., great family outing.

The Hiawatha runs late spring through the fall, and is a double-decker paddle boat complete with a small bar and occasional food services. Each outing is usually a little over an hour as the boat be-bops upriver from Susquehanna State Park west into Linden and then back. I've been on the boat over a dozen times, as it is a... More

Took whole family for a trip on the river you get a great feel for the towns lumber history and was very reasonably priced. Boat was clean and safe and ride was not too long or too short. Will be going again.

I was very disappointed in this boat ride. I specifically wanted to take this tour to learn more about the area and the lumbering industry and unfortunately, I could barely hear anything due to a family with young children who could have cared less. Also, for the price that was paid, it was only 1/2 hour down the river and... More
