We went on this twice now. Once through the lock and dam for my dad's 65th birthday. ..And as a newly engaged couple! He knows the area very well, even names the Eagles! Great experience. You won't be disappointed.

Unreliable reservation system led to a wasted trip to the boat landing. This was complimented by unapologetic and discourteous staff.

Loved the river ride! Very informative. Great low price for a fun river ride. Lots of eagles to watch. Would go back in a minute and do it again.
