“Friendly, Fun, Personal Tour”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

My husband, our 24 year-old son and I went on this attraction, which is new to Savannah. The boat was comfortable, with plenty of visibility from any of the seats. They handed out bottled water to any who wished for it and made sure we were comfortable.

The crew members were amiable and enthusiastic, while the principle tour guide kept us all amused or intrigued with tidbits about Savannah's history, pirates, sailing and natural history.

Lewis (I honestly don't know if I remember his name correctly) made a point of spending quality, personal time with each of the groups or couples, engaging them in conversation and answering any questions about their personal area of interest.

And yes! We saw dolphins-many of them-including a mother and her young one. Although it cannot be scripted-and I know that a repeat cannot be quarantined-a dolphin came and swam alongside the boat, turning and twisting for us to take video...or at least that is how it seemed:)

We did give the crew a tip, but it was not blatantly solicited as it is on many tourist attractions in every part of the world we have visited.

This is a relaxing, rewarding, two thumbs up activity

“Had a great afternoon!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We really enjoyed our trip. I loved hearing the stories and getting to see Savannah from the water. It was a very relaxing afternoon. Thank you for letting my daughter "take the wheel" for a little bit. It really made her day and she bragged about it to my parents on the phone that night.

“Great choice to get away from the crowds!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Skip the big commercial boats and book a tour with Good Times Charters. We had a fun, comfortable, two hour trip on the Savannah River on a beautiful new boat. Very smooth ride, even though there was quite a bit of wind. Learned a bit more about the history and geography of the area. Excellent tour for groups and families!

“Relaxing cruise on the Savannah river”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Very well organized company. Comfortable new boat, nice crew, relaxing and well narrated cruise. Wished we could have seen more dolphins but the crew did their best to alert us when a dolphin is sighted, then the boat would come to a stop so everyone can enjoy the view. Would recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Savannah.
