*River Stage at Hannibal, MO – 22.61      River Stage at Canton, MO – 19.19 *


Ahoy from Hannibal, MO.


We have been patiently (not so much) waiting for the river to drop below 18 ft at Lock & Dam 20 located in Canton Mo.  We thought we would have a window of opportunity to lock through this coming week.  As the newest predictions come in, that is not going to be the case.  So, the waiting continues with the Mark Twain still moored in Ft. Madison, IA.


For more information, or if you have questions, or want to make a future reservation, please call us:

See you soon!!

Dinner Cruise

Enjoy a night of dinner and dancing on this cruise on the Mighty Mississippi. Indulge in a delicious buffet and share a wonderful dinner with your family or friends, then enjoy live music from the dance floor or the deck.

Once on board, you are escorted to your table, then you are free to roam the boat until the captain announces that dinner is ready. After dinner, you are free to dance or sit back and enjoy the music. Live entertainment is included on our Dinner Cruises. It may be The Rivermen playing modern jazz (Saturday night from Memorial Day thru September), or you might get to enjoy the music of Tim Hart (Mondays & Tuesdays), or Adam Ledbetter and David Damm (Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Listen or dance to their favorite tunes — and they have been known to take a request or two. And you never know when a crew member or two may step up on the stage and join in.
