Provo River Christmas Boat Cruise
Dec 07, 2017 07:50AM
CLAS Ropes Course property borders the Provo River and the owners, Benjamin Allen and his wife Melanie have hosted Christmas boat cruise for 21 years. This is a very unique event that will be remembered for date night or family night and for everyone in between. First of all, it is a real boat for the river cruise that is 10 feet wide and 26 feet long, sitting a maximum of 40 people. Christmas music plays as the craft glides through the water silently as the boat master pulls on a rope strung above the river. The shoreline has been decorated with Holiday scenes and Christmas lights. A neat thing about the boat cruise is seeing the reflection of the lights in the calm river water. At one point there is half a star at the shoreline, and the reflection completes the star. Along the way, Santa comes out to visit on a canoe. The river experience takes about 25 minutes. It is an open boat, and you need to dress warm and consider bringing a blanket.
The Christmas Boat Cruise departs from CLAS Ropes Course at 3606 West Center Street in Provo. The cruise runs every 30 minutes Monday through Thursday from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday night from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m. The price is $8 per person. If you have a large group you can rent the entire boat for $175 Tuesday through Thursday and $195 on Monday, Friday, and Saturday. The Christmas Boat Cruise runs through December 23.
