    This is a nice cruise up and down the Savannah River a good to get a view of the city from the river. Since Savannah is a port city, the primary scenery once you are outside the River Street area is of the various ports and shipping companies to Savannah. While this is educational it is not a "scenic" river tour. We really did learn a lot about the various industries that use Savannah's port as well as the history of the river through the years.

    There are several options for cruising on the river. Along River Street you will find large old fashioned looking river boats which make for good photography... as well as smaller craft designed for short cruises to explore the river with a little commentary.
    When I say a "little" commentary, I mean just that. We were disappointed in the river boat cruise. The commentator was not very talkative or entertaining. We sailed up river but not down river...so what was included was just the port and the bridge.
    It would have been nice to fill in with some stories, jokes or music, but there was none of that. We thought the river boat was better to look at and imagine the ride rather than actually take the ride. Perhaps it would be better as a dinner cruise? Didn't strike me so... but perhaps if you were in a group of jovial folks.....

    Take a boat ride up the Savannah River

    by VeronicaG Updated Feb 7, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A cruise up the peaceful Savannah River is a fantastic way to see this historic city.

    The Savannah River Queen is up to the task, for it can hold up to 400 people. As it plys the water, the Georgia Queen can accommodate 600 people. The sights and sounds of the waterfront are exhilerating as you glide along the water!

    With the wind in our hair and a few less dollars in our pockets, we rode the waves for too short a time, for it was a great experience!

    UPDATED PRICES:There are various departure times depending on the season. The price for a Narrated Sightseeing Cruise is $17.95 for adults; $9.95 for children under age 12;age 3 and under is free.

    River Street Riverboats offers some excellent narrated cruises on the Savannah River. It also offers various others, such as a murder mystery cruise, moonlight cruise, gospel cruise, and brunch/dinner cruises.
