Our Sunday afternoon tour was superb. Make sure you sit in the front to get the most out of your guide. You'll have to get there early and check in across the street in the tour office, even if you have an online ticket. I expected more history about the town, but you can get that on the many trolley... More

The boat comes equipped with alcoholic beverages which is ideal for me when I'm on a boat to calm my nerves.The drinks aren't that fancy or anything special but it gets the job done. But it was much better than I expected. Very serene and informative. We even got to see dolphins swim with the boat as we were taking... More

We missed out on the dinner cruise but our afternoon boat cruise was very good. Very knowledgeable captain and the boat itself she is a beauty. On board they have plenty of room to sit and stand outside to enjoy the views. The steps are a bit steep so be careful. We had a very nice time learnt a lot... More

Nice ship and knowledgeable captain who gave a decent tour. Very packed with it hard to find chairs and proper place to take pictures from. Short, very short. Should go at least past the container terminals and to Ft. Pulaski for the amount we paid. Will look for another way to tour the river when I go again.

This was a wonderful evening we shared with friends. There was music on all three levels of the riverboat. The meal was buffet but the food was very good. After the cruise we walked on River Street and enjoyed the first night festivities. Later we stayed and watched the fireworks to finish the evening. It was a great time

We boarded at 3pm and left the dock at 4. The music was fun and my 82 year old mothering law danced the night away. We enjoyed the Buffet which not several Entree options and all were good. The only disappointment was that there was no dessert on the buffet offered. The view from the top deck on Christmas eve... More

Well worth the money. Not Crowded and while we didn't travel all that far up and down the river, a great experience. The captain was extremely knowledgeable and the stories will linger. If buying drinks, and they are good, forgo the souvenir cups and get the same drink for a 1/4 of the price. Kids loved the whole trip.

We took the 2 pm river cruise. This trip lasts about an hour and goes a short way up and down the Savannah River along River Street. The captain was very interesting and entertaining and explained everything we were seeing along the river. The sound quality was good and the staff was friendly. I wish the tour was a little...

Our NYE party cruise was very disappointing. Not worth $60 at all. 3 floors, 2 - indoor, not enough seating to accommodate all indoors so you are stuck outdoors in the cold and with no buffet on that floor either. Drinks are not included, buffet is lame. Never again

We took the dinner cruise for New Years eve, the food was good, especially the shrimp and grits! It would be nice if the menu was posted on their website though. We had no clue what to expect. The staff was friendly. The entertainment was slightly lame yet fun. There is not anything to see along the cruise at night... More
