“Fun beautiful piece of history”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

If you like transportation history, or just beautiful old things - you will love this boat. It is beautifully restored, true to original. Nice ride. We had our meal catered.

“Worth it if you can find it”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Nice saling, although not much to see along the river. No one seemed able to direct us to where it sails from; entailed a long walk from the parking area, which also had a parking charge. The boat itself is handsome, but isn't set up well for sightseeing; main cabin is a nice tavern, small windows, upper deck has a long bench out in the sun and only chairs for 6 people out of the 55 person capacity.

“Ride down the Susquehanna”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The cruise on the Susquehanna was relaxing and informative. I went on a senior citizen bus (15 passenger) and there was not enough room for our driver to feel comfortable to drive down closer to the dock, so peopel with walkers had to walk down and then back up a hill.

“Beautiful river but .................!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The river itself is beautiful with islands everywhere. The grass "park" was crudely cut with grass tickling our "buttocks" when we sat on the few park benches. Sad, as it could be a beautiful area. We did stay at the Comfort Inn in Harrisburg after this fiasco, which was adequate and near the very small historic area. Once on the other side of the street, the area felt dangerous.

“Going back for more!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Went for a blues band, and ride, and even though there was a storm and we had to stay docked, we had a WONDERFUL time. The band was absolutely AWESOME, and if I find out they're there again, I will be sure to go back. I DO want to go for a ride, though. This is an awesome attraction, and I hope to see it stay around forever!
