River Cruises

Live in the moment with a flair of yesteryear as you cruise aboard the Spirit of Peoria paddlewheel boat, or take a relaxing river excursion with Grafton River Adventures. Whichever boating experience you choose, your cares are sure to melt away into the rolling waters of the Mississippi River.


Spirit of Peoria


Just sit back, relax and become mesmerized by the rhythmic sound of the paddlewheel propelling you forward along the calming waters of the river. As one of the few remaining paddlewheel boats on the Mississippi River, the Spirit of Peoria is a throwback to days gone by with deck side seating in the open air or a relaxing ride inside with a full view of the landscape. There are a number of cruising options available, including, sightseeing cruises, lunch & dinner cruises and full day cruising options. Lunch and dinner cruises include a full meal during a leisurely two hour tour. A full day of relaxing on the Illinois and Mississippi rivers aboard the Spirit of Peoria is also available. All inclusive ticket pricing includes: all-you-can-eat meals, professional storytelling, unlimited complimentary drinks, historic information, wildlife sightings, indoor comforts, outdoor relaxation, live entertainment, ragtime piano, roundtrip transportation, tax and gratuity.
