If you have an hour to kill in the summer then taking a trip on the Pride would be a good way to spend the time. It's relaxing a and fun little trip down and back up the river.

The Pride is a nice Harrisburg attraction for the summer and early Fall. It's a nice ride that provides a great view of the City. When waters are lower in the summer their route can be restricted a bit. You board from City Island and it's easy to find. Their staff are very friendly, and their captains are skilled. We... More

The Pride had closed down weekday operations, but did a special voyage for a group of WWII VETS and their families. The trip was wonderful. The captain was very accommodating to our group and it was a wonderful day on the river!

The facility was ran down. No bathrooms at dock and only 1 one on deck. The food is catered and not very good. Chicken lacked any flavor and beef was half raw. The cruise entailed traveling only a short distance and then circling in the same area for most of the time and made us seasick. Crew was friendly but... More

Decided to do the boat tour at the last minute, glad we did. The ride was narrated by a recording that was easy to hear and understand giving a brief history of the city. Very enjoyable.

Boat dock is located on City Island. Don't go if there is a minor league baseball game since the parking is crowded. Pleasant enough 45 minute boat ride but a shortage of outside seating. Interesting commentary about the river and Harrisburg but kept you wanting more.

Visited City Island and Riverfront Park for the Kipona Festival during Labor Day weekend. It was a great decision to take the cruise on the Pride of the Susquehanna as the weather was perfect. The cruise lasts about 45 minutes and at least half the trip a narrative on historical subjects played that was interesting. We were treated to the... More
