Regular Sightseeing Cruise

Save $3 by printing this coupon! The Spirit of Peoria in the narrows Two guys looking at water The boat coming right at us

These cruises are an hour and a half-long. They begin and end at the riverfront dock in downtown Peoria, with the Spirit cruising up and down the Illinois River.

Kids and adults alike will be fascinated by the boat’s tall fluted stacks and gigantic candy-apple red paddlewheel churning through the water. It’s great entertainment for all ages. Trip includes Captain’s Commentary. Gift shop and concessions are available. No reservations required.

Sightseeing cruises regularly run on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from June through September. Check the date listings on the right for actual cruise dates.

Remember, all sightseeing cruises depart from and return to the riverfront dock in Peoria, IL!
