“Can be relaxing or a Fun Party!”

Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat
Ranked #1 of 3 Tours in Williamsport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat is a nice way to enjoy the Susquehanna river /West branch. If you have an hour or 2 to relax and enjoy the outdoors-this might be the way to go! We have been on the night cruises-wing night and blues music: this is usually a lot of fun to just enjoy the food & music and fresh air. We have also been on the day cruise-which is very low-key, but relaxing. If it rains or is cold, the main deck is covered and enclosed with windows. In October, we cruised & it was cold, but the lower deck was heated. The upper deck is open, but still has a cover overhead. Limited bar-beer and basic mixed drinks, some snacks if your not going on a food event night. The web site is informative and the park area surrounding the attraction has nice picnic pavillion and rest area. I've taken small children, teens, elderly on this cruise and everyone enjoyed it-except if it rains hard-you are stuck on the main deck area.

The Riverboat is a great way to view the Susquehanna and its surroundings. The upper level is nice for relaxation and a little "river breeze". A must-do for residents and visitors alike!

I try to make this trip when I can. The ride is peaceful. If you ride on the top you can feel the wind blowing in your face.There is a downstairs. I ike the top better on nice days.

It's not very interactive, but it's a pleasant enough ride. The kids will fall asleep, guaranteed. But if you've never gone, it's worth it.

If you want to spend an hour relaxing on the Susquehanna, give the Riverboat a shot. Lots of seating and has a bar that serves beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. You can sit and watch all the other boats, ski jets, and campers as you slowly ride up and down the river. A great way to spend a summer afternoon!
