Great afternoon—we took the 2:30-4 PM sailing Sunday. Sure the boat is old and getting to the landing is steep and has some loose rock. (It’s not a ton of walking, maybe 7 minutes from where you park, but probably Not good for the elderly who have trouble walking.)
Park across the street in the garage-$15 for 4 hours. Cheaper for 2 hours but that may be calling it too close.
The boat was nearly full when we boarded around 2:10 PM. The cabin on the main floor where we entered houses the bathrooms was tolerable for brief periods but smelled heavily of…I don’t know…dank perfume? Aged diesel fumes? All I know is that I didn’t like it and would NOT want to spend much time there.
The snack bar was equipped with beverages, beer, wine, chips, and more. Bathrooms stinky but reasonably ok for a boat.
We went upstairs and it was a nice sunny day. No tables left on the main floor which was well covered so we sat on a reasonably comfortable life-jacket locker overlooking the water.
Advice: don’t do the meals. (See reviews by others) Just go for the 90 minute ride, grab a snack and enjoy the views. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to sailing to get a good seat. Arrive at opening time if the weather is unpleasant. Be sure to walk around and explore the ship—90 minutes is too long to sit. The narration was great and fun views/photo ops of Memphis.
Highly recommend if you aren’t too fussy to ride an old boat. Enjoy!
