Group Tour Options

Bus , Tour, School, Club or Church Groups!

If you are looking to bring your group to ride the Pride, you have 2 choices of when and how you can schedule a cruise.

Group Tour Option #1: 

Your Group Joining a 45 Minute Public Sightseeing Cruise

The 45 Minute Public Sightseeing Cruises occur every day, at 12:00 PM, 1:30 PM, & 3:00 PM, starting Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day, or 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM on Saturdays and Sundays in September and October. For groups of 30 or more, prices are $9 per adult/senior and $5 per child. Regular prices are $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and $6 for children, ages 3-12. You can book your group of up to 120 people onto any of these cruises, as long as your group can be accommodated.

Payment is due at the time of the cruise via cash, check or all major credit cards. A galley snack bar is available onboard selling drinks, snacks, hot dogs, postcards and more. A 30 minute narration will speak about the Pride, the river, and more, while you take in the beautiful sights of the skyline and foliage! The Pride has restrooms and is handicap accessible.

Group Tour Option #2:  

Your Group doing a Private 45 Minute Sightseeing Cruise

If your group is unable to do any of the already-scheduled Public Cruises, you may take the Pride out for a private 45 minute Sightseeing Cruise for just your group (no one else) any day at any time in May, September or October (schedule permitting). You may also take a private 45 minute sightseeing cruise in June, July or August any time before or after the already scheduled cruises.

The cost is a flat rate of $450 for up to 120 people.

Group Tour Option #3:  

Your Group doing a Private River School event

Another great option to consider if your group is 60 people or less is an educational voyage with our River School instructors.  These hands-on events are filled with activities and information that teach students of all ages (senior groups, school groups, and everything in between!) about the amazing History and ecology of the Susquehanna river.  These cruises are generally one hour and fifteen minutes long.

You can choose from one of the four lessons that we specialize in.  You can find more about the Susquehanna River School HERE.

The cost is a flat rate of $500 for up to 60 people.


To book either of these options, or to inquire about other special options (including our Susquehanna River School Educational Voyage) please call 717-234-6500 or email
