The Savannah River Cruise was an excellent way to get a perspective of Savannah from the water. Excellent narration full of interesting facts. Close passage of large ships underway highlighted the busy, commercial nature of the river today. Dolphin and Manatee sightings were a bonus.

Great Time! The narrator, whose name escapes me, was informative and amusing. If you love American history, as I do, this is a beautiful way to learn and relax at the same time. I highly recommend it!

Friendly staff. Narration was done well. Clean and well maintained vessel.

Excellent commentary from the docent regarding history!

Well organized and food was great, drinks mixed well!
