Fun Cruise, but ...
Aug 2021
It was a beautiful summer day, and we really enjoyed the fairly short (45 minutes) boat ride. Due to my mobility issues we stayed on the deck below, and we were able to see very well from there and to hear the audio clearly.
Getting to the boat was a nightmare though. We had never been to City Island before, and we didn't realize that we had to pass so many other attractions before we would reach the landing.
Our cruise left on a Sunday at 1 p.m., and at the same time there was a Pow Wow going on and a baseball game. By the time we got past all of that our boat was about to leave without us. We couldn't find any handicapped parking, and so I had to walk quite a lengthy distance to reach the boat.
We would still take another cruise and maybe even visit City Island for a ball game, but we would definitely get more information about what's going on there beforehand, and we would allow for more time to get to our destination.

River cruise on small boat
Aug 2021 • Couples
We decided to go on this river ride as it said beautiful views of Harrisburg from the water. Location has free parking , pretty handicapped accessible if you stay on first level which is Air-conditioned. Upper deck is reachable by two side stair cases but is rather small in size. Boat ride is narrated but you can only hear it inside the downstairs. It is one of the last steam propelled paddle boats. You may take food and drink on board. The views were not that great but we enjoyed the ride.

River tour
Jul 2021
The river boat is about 30 years old but does not show it’s age. The speaker system was a little hard to hear and the narrative was less than adequate.

Wrong address

The address mentioned is correct however when you click on “directions” on this app it takes you to the wrong destination. So just type in your navigation system / phone the address mentioned.

Eat and be Entertained!

My husband and I have now taken two murder mystery dinner cruises on the boat. What an enjoyable time of food and entertainment! The boat is cozy, comfortable and clean. Staff is helpful, pleasant and friendly. The cast is delightful, enegetic and funny. Both times we also had interesting conversations with fellow "travelers!" Unfortuantely, we were unable to leave the dock due to high winds. However, we were given complimentary tickets to take a free 45 minute boat ride at a later time. We will happily visit again!

Relaxing on the water
Sep 2019
On a beautiful Saturday morning, we took the boat tour as a way to get an overview of Harrisburg. The boat is a beautiful restoration of an early riverboat with elaborate furnishings. While the theme fro that day was music on the river, we enjoyed more talking about the history of the river and area. The boat even had a modern head on board.

Totally enjoyable evening.
Sep 2019
These entertainers were once in Baltimore and I am so glad we found them again. This affair is non-profit. The show (as always) was entertaining, the ferry is stunning and in beautiful shape, I had the chicken dinner and my husband the crab cake both were excellent. We went Memorial Day and traffic was a nightmare with some streets closed. I strongly suggest that you take the phone number & cell phone. We called and were guided around the maze to closer parking for handicapped. There is a little food stand right across from the dock where the food was also good (we arrived early and had a crab bowl to enjoy what watching for the ferry to arrive. The ferry dining/show room is small and cramped. However, After the show there is time to go above deck, stretch and enjoy the ride and sunset.

Pleasant, but don't pay full price
Sep 2019 • Couples
We were already on City Island for a festival when we decided the diversion of a ride on the river sounded nice. They had sailings leaving on the hour that day, so we were able to catch a tour easily.

The boat itself has seen better days but did not feel unsafe. We rode on the top deck, which had very limited seating. There seemed to be a bar on the main floor; we didn't explore there.

The ride was enjoyable, as time on the water often is. There was a pre-recorded informational spiel that played during the first half of the tour; it was difficult to hear it over the talking of other guests. It was primarily historical in nature; there was no pointing out of landmarks or interesting sights.

We were lucky enough to have a Groupon to use that day - $13 for the two of us. I would have been unhappy had we paid the full price for a ho-hum tour on a beat-up little boat.

The Pride also hosts dinner cruises, music cruises, and more. Keep your expectations low, get a deal on the price, and just enjoy being on the water for a while.
