Come enjoy an adventure riverboat ride on the lower Provo River! You'll see over 100 hand carved jack-o-lanterns reflecting off the water, hear the boat captain tell a scary story, and enjoy some scary songs. A pirate even attacks the boat! We have two professional excursion boats that can accommodate 40 people each.
The ride is a round-trip experience that takes approximately 25 minutes, with departures every 15-30 minutes.
No need to make a reservation unless you have a group of 20 or more!

The Halloween Cruise boarding area is located at 3606 W. Center Street in Provo. (See note at bottom of post.) You can go as a family or small group, or you can rent out the entire boat and take youth groups, company groups, neighbor groups, friends……..whoever you want; the more the merrier, and the boat can hold up to forty people.
Upon arrival, all kids under twelve will be asked to put on a lifejacket. They provide these, and there is no charge. There is also a food tent available for goodies and snacks before or after your cruise.
Your guide will pick you up at the staging area, and guide you through a walk of not-too-spooky-for-young-kids Halloween graveyards. You will pass through the Halloween gateway, and arrive at the river, where you will board for your cruise. The river is dark, but dimly lit with strings of Halloween lights across the river. See over 100 decorated pumpkins lit up along the edge of the river. Some of them are even carved upside down on purpose so that when you see the reflection in the water, they are right side up! It’s a really fun effect!
The cruise boat has a motor, but to keep with the Halloween ambiance, the guide will pull the boat along a roap strung across the river. You will hear a spooky story, and maybe get a visit from a sneaky pirate!
The cruise takes about 25 minutes, and was the perfect family Halloween activity for kids of all ages.
