The Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat is an authentic stern-driven paddle wheeler used for business meetings, private parties, weddings, classic dinner cruises, the ever-popular Murder Mystery Dinner Cruises, and as a floating classroom.

The Pride's season runs from May through November, with daily Public Sightseeing Cruises occurring from Memorial Day until Labor Day at 12:00 PM, 1:30 PM, and 3 PM (subject to change, call or see online calendar for exact schedule). You can enjoy snacks, ice cream, candy, hot dogs, pizza, soda, beer, wine, and other great food items at our Galley Snack Bar during these sightseeing cruises. Reservations not required; cruises board 15 minutes prior.

If you have a group and would like to join a public cruise, please call us for details. Group rates available for groups of more than 30.

The Pride also has Classic Dinner Cruises, Fall Foliage Dinner Cruises, Mother's and Father's Day Cruises, Murder Mystery Dinner Cruises , Fireworks Dinner Cruises, Arooga's Wing Night Cruises, Harbour House Crab Cruises, Wine and Cheese Cruises, Pirates on the Pride Family Fun Cruises, as well as other themed cruises. All the previous cruises require advanced reservations that can be made by calling our office or by making reservations online!

If music is something you would like to enjoy on the Pride, join us for our weekly and VERY popular Jazzin' on the Pride, which occurs every Thursday night during our season. It is free to get on and listen to local Jazz musicians and enjoy a cash bar and food! The sunset cruise is the paid portion of this event. Come down to the East Shore docks (Corner of Front and Locust in Harrisburg) to enjoy this event on the best deck in Harrisburg!

The Pride also has a Blues Cruises of the same format as the Jazz events, but this occurs once a month and requires a cover charge for the entire 3-½ hour event (includes cruise!). We have party cruises as well during the moonlight with cover bands and a full bar!

You can also privately charter the Pride for your wedding (very popular wedding spot!), parties, business functions, anniversaries, family and church picnics, corporate meetings, fundraisers, charity events, group-building, dances, and pretty much everything else! Call to book soon as spots fill up quickly!

You can also take your school, bus, or tour group for a private 45 minute tour of the Susquehanna on the Pride for a flat rate (you can also join a Public cruise. See above for info). Call for details.
