Hannibal Riverstage: 23.57 and supposed to crest today


Spring rains and snow melt have reached the Hannibal Riverfront.  Our wharfboat (landing barge, ticket office, and gift shop) is at the high water landing.  The Mark Twain is in Ft. Madison, Ia. getting some mechanical work done.  We are waiting for the work to be completed and the river to fall below 18.0 ft at Lock and Dam 20 in Canton, MO.  Lock 20 has to close to navigation when the river goes above 18.0 ft there.

Our Winter Office is our headquarters right now.  We are taking reservations, answering questions, and also taking applications for the upcoming season.  You can check us out at or call us at 573.221.3222.

Spring is here!  Hope to see you soon!
