River Reels: Watch Party & Happy Hour on the Mighty Mississippi

This happy hour cruise will feature a special screening of a recent episode of “Facing Waves” that features the St. Louis Riverfront and Gateway Arch. “Facing Waves” is an inspiring adventure travel TV series that follows world-renowned paddler and author, Ken Whiting. The episode is only 30 minutes long, so guests will still have plenty of time to move about the Riverboat and experience the St. Louis Riverfront for themselves during the rest of the cruise. Each ticket comes with access to an appetizer bar one free adult or non-alcoholic drink.

Appetizer bar and one free drink included in ticket price. Cash bar also available.

Happy hour and boarding begins at 5:30 pm
