Not impressed. The boat is not a true riverboat the big red circular turn paddles are nothing. We cruised under the bridge and then turned around. Not much to see. Food and drinks were over priced and service was Slow. Will not be back and would not recommend. Better tours elsewhere.

Enjoyed a cruise on a Saturday afternoon on a spectacular November afternoon. First thing--you can book online and will get a confirmation, but you need to take the confirmation on your phone to the ticket office on River Street (across from where the boat loads) and pick up paper tickets. The best part of the tour was getting to see a giant container ship and another disabled giant ship being pulled by tugboats. However, this is not scheduled to correspond to cruises, so you might not see one. Other than that, the cruise is full of information, but the distance sailed is rather short, and there aren't that many sights along the way. Also most passengers crowded onto the upper open deck, and there wasn't much distancing happening, nor was anyone enforcing masking rules, so you'll have to be cautious on your own. However, it was a pleasant tour, and we enjoyed ourselves, though it's not an activity that I'd go back again and again to.

My family and I enjoyed the river boat site seeing tour. Our guide was very informative and we learned a lot about Savannah and landmarks along the way. Some of the sites we learned about were the waving girl, ft Pulaski and the riverside district. We got to see a bald eagle, that was very cool. We also saw the river boat that was used on the Netflix show Ozark. No dolphin spotting on our trip.

Really not worth the time or the price. Really not a lot to see and our captain used the ENTIRE journal as his personal stage to tell jokes and a little history. We were happy to get off the ship. Take the trolley tours instead
