Come sail with the Susquehanna River School!  These scenic 75-minute cruises offer unparalleled views of the water and Harrisburg’s landmarks.

This unique floating classroom teaches students of all ages about the history and natural wonders of the Susquehanna River and Harrisburg.  Instructors utilize hands-on activities, lectures, games, and more to teach about the importance of our river and the ways we can continue to take care of it.

The River School has been sailing for over 19 years now, and students have raved about its unique approach to education.
River School classes are scheduled each Saturday morning during the summer at 10:00am.

School groups may be able to charter the River School for private lessons any day of the week.  Contact or (717) 234-6500 to inquire!
