We took this as a group but it is simply a lazy hour on a make believe paddle wheel boat. Although they try to tell you about the river, most of the time, the speakers are drowned out by the engine. If you want a relaxing lazy hour river ride, take it, if you want to learn about Williamsport, don't... More

Such fun for a group of people! We didn't do a meal run this time, but I have in the past. It's a peaceful ride down & back on the River and they have a nice snack shop with a wide variety of items available.

If you want something different for an event and want to relax, this is for you. I have used it for business groups and also done their concert trips with food, plus just a ride. All are fun.

We took my 88 year old mother on this river cruise and she totally enjoyed it. Air conditioned inside & they even had seats outside without her having to go up the steps to the upper level. Very nice crew & a nice trip.

This is a nice 1 hour cruise down the Susquehanna River giving you the history of the logging trade that helped built the town of Williamsport. Staff are very nice, there's an upper and lower deck, drinks and snacks are available for purchase. This is located in the Susquehanna State Park with nice picnic area along the river and a... More

This was a very pleasant ride on the Susquehanna. There is a full bar and some food concessions, but after my rum drink I didn't care about food. Upstairs is shaded but open to the air, downstairs is enclosed and air conditioned. Bathrooms on board. If you enjoy riverboat rides, you should do this; if they bore you then there... More

Nice relaxing ride on a paddle boat. The trip was about hour. Educational recording playing during the ride on the area and river.

Have been wanting to go there for over a year. Finally, we took a drive this week. The boat, crew and entire experience, were well worth the trip. Prices for snacks and drinks on the boat are very reasonable. Bathrooms on board as well as dockside, next to the ticket/snack shop. We sat inside and enjoyed the narrated film of... More
