Reservations are easy, Boarding was on time and easy. Departure and Return was right on schedule. Great audio of local history and info about the Missouri River. Very enjoyable and reasonable price. They do serve beverages aboard the boat.

We booked the one-hour "happy hour" cruise. There was nothing wrong with it per se--we were seated on the top deck (arrive at least 30 minutes early to get a spot in line), the boat left on time, etc. But we were expecting a narrated tour, and what we got instead was less than 20 minutes of choppy, pre-recorded audio about the Lewis & Clark expedition. Rather than a story, it seemed to be a series of separate clips, each introduced with its own music, lasting a sentence or two, and then with a music outro, followed by a bit of silence before the next clip. We could have gotten the same information on Wikipedia--the fact that it was on the riverboat added precisely nothing to our understanding or experience. For the rest of the cruise, the speakers played 80s and 90s pop music. We were expecting some of the narration to be about what we were passing on the shore, but there was none...possibly because the scenery on the shore wasn't all that special either: some nice homes and a restaurant, but that was about it. There were a few interesting buildings, bridges and parks that probably had stories behind them, but those remained untold. Also be aware that the riverboat is actually a modern motorized vessel made to sort of resemble a paddle-wheeler. The faux paddlewheels on the sides are just for effect, though. They turn even when the boat is at the dock. All in all, it was not an unpleasant trip, but more of a tourist trap than a memorable experience. Unless you really have an urge to cruise a fairly mundane section of the Missouri River, save your money and visit the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Bismarck instead.

What a fun adventure! A small group of us did the sunset tour last night and it did not disappoint! The boat was super clean and adorable! The staff was extremely friendly and there was a full bar on board! The River was absolutely beautiful. I would suggest doing the sunset tour, as the views were breathtaking. I could not get over the cotton candy sky while we were slowly cruising down the river. I would say this is a must if you find yourself in Bismarck. Such a cool experience! I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because my drinks were horrible. I asked for a margarita and it was the smallest amount of tequila and then filled the rest of the way with a mixer that was so sweet, I couldn't even drink it. We tried again and told them about it, and the second one was just as bad and pretty much went straight in the garbage. So that was a huge bummer. Other than that, this was a really fun activity! I'd recommend it to everyone!

The ticket price is $19 and to me it's worth it. The tour length is 1.5 hours and we opted for the sunset tour. It goes down the Missouri River at a slow pace and serves refreshments, cocktails, snacks. Other cruise options have dinner, pizza, theme nights. I wish that a tour guide might come on staff and give some local insight and history, but it was fine also being quite and just enjoying the beautiful scenery.

While my boyfriend was slaving away in the North Dakota heat, I decided to entertain myself by taking a trip down the Missouri River on the Lewis & Clark Riverboat. I booked the 3-4 pm Thursday, and it was just the right amount of people. The upper deck is shaded, but after a good 10 minutes in that humidity, I retired to the lower deck, which was nicely air conditioned. There's a bar on the lower deck with beer/wine, sodas, water, and snacks. One of the employees also goes up top to take drink orders before the cruise begins. The cruise takes 1 hour, and it's a very calm and nice ride, accompanied by recorded facts of the area and of Lewis & Clark's expedition. I would probably recommend an evening cruise if you're looking to relax and have a romantic time with your significant other. The cruise itself is nothing special, but it's a good way to see the Missouri River up close, and the experience is fun. For only $13.95, I would definitely recommend it.

We booked the 6pm dinner evening cruise for a Sunday night. We got there at 5:45 the top of the boat was already filled up so we had to sit downstairs inside. Didn't bother us as it has ample windows and cool AC. When the boat first went off the downstairs seemed really loud with the motor right under us, but once we got cruising it was fine. The "dinner" cruise is two slices of pizza: cheese, pepperoni, or sausage. There's a bar once you walk in. We only had beer which is $4 a piece. Not sure about the liquor. The boat ride itself is very relaxing. I had gone with the expectation of learning something, but instead just heard light music playing. I would say it's romantic but I didn't really think so. Kinda just boating down the river looking at people's houses. Don't think I would recommend it unless you're looking to kill time while doing something unique.

We just enjoyed a beautiful sunset cruise on the riverboat. It was a thoroughly enjoyable cruise -- so relaxing. The cruise was 1.5 hours of slowly gliding down the river and back. They serve beverages and snacks downstairs. We sat upstairs near the rear. It was perfect.

My husband and I were really looking forward to the riverboat cruise. We were expecting some sort of narration regarding the river and about Lewis and Clark expeditions and surrounding area. We are from out-of-state and would have enjoyed the cruise more learning about the river and North Dakota. An explanation of safety rules should have been given to all of the passengers. Finally, our 1 1/2 hour cruise which was paid for was only 1 hour and 13 minutes!

Photo of Kisha J.

Well, I wish I had feedback but do to the fact my husband and I drove all the way up to celebrate our Anniversary weekend only to have the cruise cancelled our feedback is not great. The customer service is severely lacking and downright rude. The woman at the desk tried to somehow make the fact they cancelled the cruise due to lack of people OUR FAULT. We are awaiting our refund, oh yeah, she was rude about that too, the printers were down so she couldn't give us a confirmation of a refund.... We have tried three times in three years to have our anniversary cruise, was even planning our 15th Anniversary on a private Vow Renewal cruise......that ain't happening. Bottom line, poorly managed and poor customer service. Not recommended to plan in advance.

Had my family in from out of state and decided this would be a fun thing to do while they were here. It was okay..Here are some points to take into consideration.. Good Point: You can choose your experience, whether you just want to take a quick cruise, or a long relaxing night with dinner. Bad Point: This obviously runs during the summer where bee activity is high. There were a couple of bee's nests on board and had a tough time figuring where to sit.

Lewis and Clark Riverboat Cruises

Bismarck cruise provides relaxing evening on Missouri River

timtrudell Bismarck , North Dakota 0

We enjoyed a wonderful and peaceful cruise on the Missouri River as a night cap for our recent visit to Bismarck, North Dakota. The Lewis and Clark Riverboat offers a 90-minute evening cruise.

The river was calm during our trip. Looking out toward the shore, it felt like we were on a giant lake. The Missouri River is the longest river in the United States. It empties into the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, Missouri. It’s 2,341 miles long.

Our river cruise took us only a few miles downstream and back. The Missouri River is much cleaner in North Dakota than it is near home. Once the river hits Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota, it starts picking up more dirt and other “gifts” from the communities along the way. It has a nickname of the “Muddy Mo” once it reaches home.

However, this story is about a much more pleasant experience. It was a great way to finish our day. The air had a slight nip. We didn’t wear jackets, but that was OK.

The river cruise launched at about 8 p.m., just in time to catch a beautiful sunset. The Missouri looks amazing with a sunset backdrop. Boats kept driving up and down the river well after darkness had set in.

A man was fishing along the river bank near the riverboat’s dock. I heard him tell someone he was catching small fish with no keepers.

While we enjoyed our riverboat cruise, we encourage people to arrive up to an hour before launch. You can take a short walk along the river shore and visit some beautiful art pieces at Steamboat Park and Keelboat Park.

Steamboat Park has a model boat along the shore. You can stand above the river on it. It’s a great spot for snapping photos of the sun set or to watch people boating.

“Reflections” is a Native American-designed piece that features an eagle engulfing a mirrored ball. The ball’s reflective surface gives the piece its name.

We saw one of the most beautiful pieces of art we’ve ever seen with the Thunderbird. The four-headed sculpture features the Thunderbird head and talons. The bird’s heads jut out of thunder clouds with lightning in its eyes.

Several native tribes believed the Thunderbird was the power behind the storms on the prairies and deserts.

The entire riverboat experience was fun – from the walk in the park to the actual cruise on the Missouri River.

Please note that the riverboat cruises are now completed for the season. The 2016 season should run between May and September, depending on the weather.

Lewis and Clark Riverboat returns to the Missouri River

BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The Lewis and Clark Riverboat is now ready to cruise up and down the Missouri River.

The 62-ton boat was hoisted into the river Friday morning. New carpet and a resurfaced bar are restored features guests can look forward to this season. The Missouri River podcast will also be played before each cruise begins.

“Last summer, the riverboat was in a little earlier than this, but, of course, we had a winter that pushed really late this year,” said Aaron Barth with the Missouri Valley Heritage Alliance.

The boat will undock for its first public cruise of the season on May 26 for its 32nd year. The boat first launched in 1991.
