Had our daughters wedding on board. The boat and view were wonderful backdrops. The crew had the boat looking immaculate. Everyone was so accommodating for our decorating along with helpful suggestions. Simple but elegant setting. Crew certainly helped in keeping everything running smoothly with keen awareness and support to needs. Had been on the boat before and this experience superseded... More

On January 19, 2014 My friend and I went on the Blue Moon Cruise to see the sandhill cranes. We had a beautiful day and saw a whooping crane, bald eagles and their nest and also many sandhill cranes. The food was good and the boat very comfortable.

The staff of the Blue Moon went above and beyond to make sure that their guest needs are met. My family is going to make this a family tradition each year. What a wonderful experience. The food was great. We are looking forward to making plans for other cruises that the Blue Moon offers.

Did the fall canyon trip. Colors weren't quite at peak yet, but we enjoyed the relaxing ride and the narration from Captain Dave. The boat is roomy and comfortable, with very clean restrooms. Coffee and pastries were offered in the morning and a nice lunch of BBQ sandwiches was provided later. We had a short bus ride back after the... More

A friend and I wanted to see the TN River from the river and found this business online. They told of possible animal and bird sightings and offered a meal on board for the 2.5 hour cruise. What they didn't tell about was the very entertaining and knowledgeable narrator and his crew. This was one of the most courteous, warm... More

My wife & I have been on numerous eco excursions, on both land & water. there are 3 river cruise ships in Chattanooga. However, only the BLUE MOON is focused on wildlife which is why Tish Gailmark, naturalist at the Arboretum & Nature Center recommended the Blue Moon. This is because of Capt'n Dave's knowledge. We've listened to David Haggard,... More

My husband and I took his 85 year old Dad on this trip because he had never been through one of the locks on the TVA. We had a wonderful day, one he will remember forever. There were only about 12 on the boat, so we had plenty of space and the crew was wonderful. They serve a buffet style... More

Took a friend visiting from NYC on this, my 4th or 5th Blue Moon cruise--my first cruise downriver. There were very few people on board, including a large Asian family that may have had limited English since they did not appear to be interested in the narration but did seem to be enjoying themselves viewing the sights and talking together....

My husband and I took the cruise of the Tennessee River and it was so nice and peaceful cruise. We were provided with a barbeque lunch and the captain made sure that we learned historical events that took place along the river. Great experience.
