This one hour boat ride is very enjoyable. The staff and crew is very friendly. They have snacks, food, and drinks on the boat, including alcohol. I highly recommend this excursion if you are in the Williamsport area.

A lovely trip on this gentle boat along the river Susquehanna . A bit if cool relief on a blistering hit day. Recorded history of the area was very interesting. Air conditioned on the lower deck. Fabulous views of the river and surrounding area.

It's about an hour ride up and down the Susquehanna River. The captain makes brief remarks, and then have a video and audio recording about the history of the town and the river. I enjoyed the trip.

I loved the ride, the scenery, the drinks (really great price) full bar, $3.50. The only small problem was that the ride was too short. Usually I am not a fan of boat rides and can't wait to get off once the tour has started...More
