We have lived within 50 miles of Williamsport and never were on the Hiawatha, cant say why. The day cruise was very nice. Wish it was longer. I guess we will have to make a return trip and enjoy another event.

This was a church outing. Despite the rainy weather, the boat was full, the crew was very friendly and hospitable, the ice cream sundaes were ample and it was an enjoyable evening.

We rode the Hiawatha on Saturday night for a concert cruise. The problem was that only about 50 of the 100 guests can be in the first floor band area. We couldn't hear anything upstairs on the deck. They have speakers on the deck but...More

The boat is very nice with seating for about a 100. Snack bar with adult beverages for sale. Our ride was an hour and that's was enough. Got to see some beautiful scenery and enjoy the nice weather.

The Hiawatha River Boat Cruise is well worth the price. The hour long narrated boat ride is both relaxing and interesting. When you add a friendly and knowledgeable crew into the experience, the result is a trip that will be enjoyed by everyone.
