Spirit of Brownville
The Spirit of Brownville riverboat will set sail from the Riverview Marina in Nebraska City for hour-long cruises on the Missouri River on Sept. 7, 8, 9 and 10.
The narrated cruises will offer passengers the chance to learn about the river’s past, present and future, especially as it relates to Nebraska City, as well as an opportunity to view wildlife.
Erv Friesen and Doug Friedli are set to provide the narration for the cruises, which will depart at 2 and 6 p.m. each day.
