Plan a Flawless Gathering With Southern Belle!


The Best Event Venue in Chattanooga

“Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach and having fun.”—Brian Wilson, Co-Founder of the Beach Boys.

All of us here at Southern Belle Riverboat hope you’re having an awesome summer! As July winds down and we head full-steam into August, we want to remind you that there is still plenty of summer left, still time to enjoy the happy times and the good sunshine!

If you’re planning any kind of party, you can’t do better than Southern Belle Riverboat for a venue. Whether it’s a wedding event, birthday party, class reunion, family reunion, or even a corporate outing—a private charter with Southern Belle is your best possible venue in the Chattanooga area. With breathtaking views of the Chattanooga skyline, Lookout Mountain and the Tennessee River, a cruise with us turns your event into an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime event!

We offer a ton of different packages for any size group. Our private charters offer group rates start at 20 people and we can accommodate as many as 1000 people at our multiple event and wedding venues here in downtown Chattanooga on the Tennessee River.

Host an event your guest will never forget

The Southern Belle Riverboat will turn your special occasion into a party that will be talked about for years! As one of the top things to do in Chattanooga and one of the best Chattanooga attractions, it’s a venue that checks every box for your celebration to be one you’ll cherish forever.

In addition to our relaxing, feels-like-you’re-in-a-movie river cruise, we have a fantastic dockside banquet hall that can accommodate up to 400 people. Many of our private event charters: reunions, weddings, birthday parties, or corporate meetings, will do a hybrid event. Wedding, ceremony, party event or meeting on the Southern Belle as you pass the Tennessee Aquarium and then come back and have a beautiful reception on the second-floor banquet hall.

Brian Wilson was right, summertime means happy times and good sunshine. No venue in the Chattanooga area can make your party pop quite like Chattanooga River Cruises. The ambiance created by our luxurious and comfortable riverboat combined with the glorious sights provided up and down the Tennessee River and its magnificent shoreline can’t be topped. Give us your special event checklist and you won’t be disappointed—Southern Belle Riverboat is the ultimate celebration event venue in Chattanooga!
