Although the weather was iffy, we were given the all-clear and took the tour. There was only one other guest so we pretty much had the whole boat to ourselves. The riverboat was in beautiful condition both inside and out. It's only a 45-minute tour...More

The tour was informative about Harrisburg but seemed a bit short. Would have liked to hear more about the history of the river.

We visited island many times. We came to see baseball and soccer games a lot of times. And this with visiting friends we got on the Pride. So pleasant and interesting on the hot summer evening.

We go there every summer or fall to enjoy the ride. We especially enjoy the dinner cruises or mystery night cruises. They are a lot of fun and you get to meet some great people.
