We had a wonderful time on this river cruise. The crew and captain were very friendly and knowledgeable about the river and Savannah. Snack shop and bar were price reasonably.

The cruise we took was only for an hour. It left the dock and sailed one way down river then up the river the other way and back to the dock. There really isn't too much to see on this cruise but the commentary by the captain was informative. We did learn about the port trades in Savannah. The company... More

I wasn't sure about this when I heard we'd be entertaining 300 customers for the night. The food was good quality, well served and hot. A pleasant surprise! There is a bar on all three levels and well staffed. They kept our customers happy and the service was very friendly. Our cruise began at 7:00 to 9:00 and was enjoyable.... More

We enjoyed our hour on the riverboat tour. The captain kept us informed about every sight. We only got iced teas and popcorn (which was good). Surprised how many people were aboard. Weather was nice, breeze in the air...Would recommend to get information on the river and vessels. Or just to hang out for an hour.

For something different to do, I would recommend this riverboat tour. Not that I would call it a tour, you are just moving up and down the river a little. We went on the dinner cruise, so since it was dark, there really wasn't a lot to see. The food was ok, but then again, I didn't expect a gourmet... More

Food was terrible and cold. It's a buffet but they ran out and the options were terrible. I felt like I was at MCL on water. The "tour" was nothing but a ride past cargo vessels and river street. We could have seen that on foot. And, this is not the trip for kids... B O R I N G!... More

Everyone should definitely do the riverboat! Great history of the port and current activities. The lines were too long for drinks though. Some of us missed the dialogue.

The bat ride was great and the DJ has the boat rocking. The bar ran out of a type of glass for drinks but overall it was a great ride up and down River St.

If you want to see Savannah from an off-shore perspective while eating Sunday brunch, this is the opportunity for you! We took a Sunday brunch cruise and thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, the narration from the captain, and the terrific brunch buffet that was served. Contrary to a few of the other reviews on this site, we found the food to... More

This was a total waste of money and time. If you want to see where industrial cargo is loaded and unloaded, then this is the trip to take. If not, then do not go. The crew was very friendly and the boat very clean. That was the only thing going for this tour.
