“great cruise”

Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat
Ranked #1 of 2 Tours in Williamsport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The river is so pretty, and the boat was perfect for our group. We brought snacks and bought drinks at the bar. It's not as touristy as it sounds--just a pretty boat on a pretty river.

We have traveled on the Hiawatha on a few of their various cruises. There's the regular trip, which is a lovely hour and a half back and forth on the Susquehanna River. Passengers can sit inside on the lower level or outside on the upper deck. It's very pleasant and the view is beautiful. Every Mother's Day for the last few years, we've taken the Mother's Day brunch cruise, with a buffet-style brunch. Understandably, the staff has to release each table in sequence for orderly service, but we always seem to be at the end of the line, so sometimes the wait feels long to be fed. We've been on the music cruise, and that was a lot of fun. Grown-up drinks are available, and I think reasonably priced. The staff has always been friendly and responsive. I very much recommend this experience, especially for visitors to the area.

Took this just to get away. They even serve drinks on it. Good cheap time for children and adults just as a quick and cheap thing to do while in the area.

We go the Hiawatha riverboat cruise every year while on vacation in Williamsport, it is a must! The boat ride is so relaxing and scenic as we cruise down the Susquehanna River between the mountains during the 1 1/2hr ride. The crew is always so nice and great with the kids; they will take a photo with your camera of your family without you even needing to ask. I recommend this fun family outing to all!

Good time. Friendly captain, crew and staff at the ticket counter. Full Bar for the adults (Hey, they had Di Saronno Amaretto and not just beer/wine).
Would love to come for a theme cruise sometime.
