The Riverboat Cruise In Tennessee You Never Knew Existed
Here in Tennessee, we love our heritage, and we love our rivers. And what says river heritage more than a classic riverboat? Seeing our beautiful state from the water is one of the best ways to do it, and we found a riverboat in Chattanooga that allows you to do just that. Sit back, relax, and let the steady water of the Tennessee River take you away on this Tennessee hidden gem.
The Southern Belle riverboat is a Chattanooga staple. Since 1985, this riverboat has been cruising up and down the Tennessee River, serving tourists and locals alike.
The riverboat docks and departs from Ross's Landing Park, right in the heart of downtown Chattanooga. On your cruise, you will see sweeping views of downtown Chattanooga as well as the iconic Lookout Mountain.
Cruises take off frequently. The Southern Belle operates daily sightseeing tours that include the history of the Tennessee River, the river's legends, and fun facts about the places seen from the cruise.
Looking for something a little more special? They also offer daily sunset cruises and daily dinner cruises that include their buffet full of delicious Southern food.
In addition to their daily cruises, the Southern Belle also runs many seasonal cruises, including Halloween "Boo"-ze cruises, Valentine's Day sweetheart cruises, and Moonlight Cruises where the boat turns in to a nightclub complete with live DJ.
The Southern Belle has two ships -- one that regularly operates on cruises and one that is attached to the dock, which features a full ballroom and event space, perfect for parties, weddings, and other events.
They also have a land-based burger restaurant that offers some of the best burgers and cocktails in Chattanooga! The 3rd Deck Burger Bar overlooks the beautiful Tennessee River, sitting right on the shore, 40-feet over the water. Now that's a dinner with a view!
What beautiful views! Continue your adventure right here in Tennessee with this:
