River Discovery Boat Tours

A big THANKS to all who spent time with us on the spectacular Susquehanna River this season! We had a wonderful time sharing stories of the river, watching the incredible wildlife, taking in the ever-changing scenery, and just seeing the smiles on our passengers’ faces, young and old.

And another big THANKS to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources/Heritage Areas Program and the National Park Service/Chesapeake Bay Gateways Program for providing funding so that we could offer the tours free of charge.

 

Exciting News for Our 2022 Season!

2022 brings a grand old vessel to the lower Susquehanna!

We are very pleased to announce that we will be conducting our 2022 River Discovery Tours aboard the historic Chief Uncas, a beautiful 55-foot wooden launch built in 1912 by the Electric Launch Company of Bayonne, NJ.

The Chief Uncas was built for Adolphus Busch, co-founder of the famous American beer company, to enjoy cruises at his summer estate on Otsego Lake in Cooperstown, NY – the very headwaters of the Susquehanna River. After cruising those headwaters for 109 years, next summer, the Chief Uncas will begin a new chapter in its life 400 miles downriver as Susquehanna National Heritage Area’s flagship tour boat!

We can’t wait to offer our River Discovery Tours on this elegant, ELECTRIC, craft!

Check back in the Spring for details on 2022 tour schedules and ticket pricing!

In the meantime, you can get a preview of the Chief Uncas here.
