The Pride of the Susquehanna has been moved again


The Harrisburg Riverboat, "The Pride of the Susquehanna" had to be moved to Sanctuary island, north of City Island today due to high water levels according to a press release.

The dock where the boat is usually stationed is underwater and the river level height is 13 feet, 9 inches and expected to crest even higher by Thursday.

“Words cannot express how disappointed we all are over this latest bout with flooding” said Board Chair Deb Donahue. “This is the third time this year that all scheduled cruises have had to be cancelled.”

The Harrisburg Area River Boat Society operates over a 6 month period but due the the recent flooding has lost 6 weeks of it's sailing season.

This has led to a loss of revenue and the dock repairs will put a lot of financial strain on this non-profit. They depend on the community for financial support.

Donahue said she is hopeful the Riverboat can resume scheduled cruises and sightseeing tours by this weekend. Visitors can call the office at 717-234-6500 or visit our website at for further information.
