Spirit of Peoria on Illinois River

Spirit of Peoria on Illinois River

The Spirit of Peoria with it’s 21-foot diameter paddle wheel cruises along the Illinois River to the Starved Rock State Park.  The Spirit of Peoria is a full-blown replica of the nineteenth century riverboats that used to inhabit the nation’s waterways.  The paddle wheel is the only source of propulsion on this ship!

To set the mood and prepare for this nostalgic journey back in time, we recommend that our guests stay at the Mark Twain Hotel just 3 blocks from the water the night before.

Our Here’s what our client Jim from Bedford, IN had to say:

“Everything was great from the Mark Twain Hotel through the final minutes of the cruise.  The Riverboat was very well run in all respects. The Captain/Owner of the Spirit of Peoria and the crew provided an exceptionally well-run and enjoyable mini-vacation.  I plan to go on one of the Spirits’ longer cruises in the near future.”

The Spirit of Peoria does 1 night cruises to Starved Rock and 2 night cruises from Peoria to St. Louis, MO.  If you haven’t cruised before and want to test the waters, this is a great way to get started in cruising.
