We took the brunch cruise which had a very nice buffet. The boat cruised up and down the river at a nice pace to create a breeze but not so fast that we could not enjoy the scenery. Wonderful afternoon!

This reasonably priced cruise is relaxing and pleasant. Seating takes the form of chairs around beer garden-style tables and there is a bar for soft and alcoholic drinks. I don't think hot food is available but there were potato chips and the like. It could...More

The boat was very nice, and the people were very nice, but the scenery on the cruise was boring. Not much to see. It would have been bettor to cruise down the river past the city sites.

Just a cruise down and back up the river on an old riverboat. Drinks and snacks way over priced considering what you pay for a ticket.

Friendly people. Comfortable riverboat - upstairs outside at plastic tables and chairs or downstairs at tables with large glass windows and a bar. The ride took a couple of hours and goes down the river a few miles and then back again. Nothing really exciting...More

Absolutely loved every minute of this pleasant cruise on the river made famous by Lewis and Clark. It was their last day for their 2016 season and the weather was stellar. It's nice that they have beverages and snacks too, but I was so busy...More

You can tell this is a mock up of a riverboat but at about $12.50 a head it is a reasonable for an hour and a half ride on the Missouri. There is a brief narration about the Missouri and Lewis and Clark but afterward...More

There was a wedding scheduled the day after our river cruise. We were told the bridal party was not going to wear the traditional gowns & tuxes. I don't remember it being windy but that is something you'd have to plan for... More
