Lewis and Clark Riverboat

North Dakota



The Lewis and Clark Riverboat is owned and operated by the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation, welcoming you to hold your wedding on the sparkling waters of the Missouri River. The Lewis and Clark Riverboat continues the proud tradition of the Missouri River steamers at the Port of Bismarck. Have an adventure at your wedding with this exciting opportunity and original venue. Say your vows at the head of the boat by a backdrop of rippling waters and endless sky. Set up an intricate archway by the head and weave voile and wildflowers through it to add a billowing, dreamy effect to an already lovely picture. Have a classy dinner party or fun daily outing on a beautiful cruise boat post-ceremony for a truly unique reception. Extend your cruise into the night and hang stringed lights around the perimeter of the boat for a romantic evening. Stand with your new spouse on the top deck and bask in the beauty of your surroundings and the joyous atmosphere of your nuptials.
