Have you seen Chattanooga from the river? The absolute best sightseeing of the lovely city of Chattanooga is from the Southern Belle Riverboat, the only cruise ship that gives you the very best views of the city and the Tennessee River. Since 1985 the Southern Belle Riverboat has had a simple mission: to provide a unique and spectacular experience of the beautiful city of Chattanooga. Our sightseeing cruises show off the beauty of both the river and the city, giving our passengers gorgeous views of Chattanooga that you can only experience from the Southern Belle.
Our sightseeing cruises start by taking you to the foot of Lookout Mountain, one of the city’s premier sights and a perfect background for a quintessential photo of beautiful Chattanooga! Next, we take a slow turn around historic Moccasin Bend, giving you one-of-a-kind perspectives of what the National Park Service refers to as one of the “most unique units found in the entire National Park Service.”
From there we take our time to cruise back down through downtown Chattanooga. All of our sightseeing cruises are narrated by our amazing historian, who offers our passengers fascinating facts about the history and beauty of the city. Passengers are amazed at the sights and sounds of both the river and the city as they take it all in from iconic views that are only visible from the Southern Belle. The crew on board is at your service and will go out of their way to make sure you have all the information you need and will answer any questions you might have.
The Southern Belle Riverboat cruise is a “must-do” experience, whether you’re sightseeing on a romantic afternoon or evening as a couple or with a large group of friends or family. Our staff makes sure your cruise is as special and as memorable as it can be– we strive to make your journey with us a special occasion and we’ll do everything we can to make your cruise an experience you’ll remember and cherish for a lifetime.
The Southern Belle Riverboat has daily sightseeing cruises, lunch cruises, dinner cruises, and private charters as well. We are proud to say we cruise year round and carry well over 100,000 passengers per year!
All sightseeing cruises are approximately 1.5 hours on the scenic Tennessee River. Sit back, relax, and enjoy beautiful Chattanooga as you’ve never seen her before onboard the majestic Southern Belle Riverboat.
