"Enjoy an evening of dinner, entertainment and an unforgettable tour of our historic waterfront city."
We dare you to find a better way to explore Savannah’s riverfront than aboard one of Savannah Riverboat Cruises’ vessels. The fleet includes the 230-foot Georgia Queen, the grandest riverboat in the United States. The triple-decker, 1000 passenger, paddlewheel riverboat looks like Savannah. One thinks you’ll see petticoats around the next corner. The smaller Savannah River Queen can accommodate up to 600 people. Both can cater to individuals, small groups or large events.
Since 1991, Savannah Riverboat Cruises has offered excellent food, Southern hospitality, and breathtaking views of Savannah.
With dinner, lunch/brunch, moonlight, harbor and seasonal cruises, there are a plethora of opportunities to hop aboard and explore our historic waterfront city. One of the best venues in the city, the riverboat cruises create the perfect atmosphere for a wedding, party, family reunion or corporate event.
A staple of the tourist experience in Savannah, these 90-minute to two-hour cruises are a great way to immerse yourself in the history of Savannah. You can relax indoors and escape the Southern heat or laze on the outdoor decks, enjoying the sun and breezes.
Don’t think the sun has to shine to enjoy these cruises. You can see just as much in inclement conditions. In fact, it’s a great way to enjoy a rainy day.
As written in the regal ballroom of the Georgia Queen, Savannah Riverboat Cruises believe in “Life, Liberty and You.”
Not only are the views and history unforgettable, the riverboats themselves are gorgeously appointed with dark hardwood trim and crystal chandeliers. You’ll feel pampered and valued by the shore-side and onboard crews throughout your journey.
You’ll be entertained during your cruise with detailed history of Savannah, area shipping history and tales about Old Fort Jackson, also part of the tour. Dinner cruises include live music, so bring your dancing shoes.
Also, don’t miss the Monday gospel dinner cruise. Get a chance to experience a soulful side of Savannah that many people miss.The live music will add a vivid element of Savannah’s past and present.
Make sure you explore all of Savannah’s riverfront, history and haunts. Savannah Riverboat has packages with local trolley tours, pub crawls and ghost tours. Choose a combo that caters to your interests. There is so much to see in Savannah, both on land and sea.
