About

Every trip to Savannah should include some time spent on its beautiful waterways. Join us for a unique cruise of the Intracoastal Waterway, Wilmington and Skidaway rivers and Savannah's unique 'Moon River' district.
You will see verdant maritime forests, opulent antebellum waterfront homes, victorian river resorts and turn-of-the-century fish-camps.
On this private boat tour, you will be joined by a USCG licensed captain and a City of Savannah tour guide who will describe the rich history and topography of the area. Wildlife is abundant and we will be looking along the way for Bald Eagles, Osprey, and Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin.

Itinerary

We will leave from Hogan's Marina and meander down Turner Creek, passing old fish camps and private islands dotted with stunning riverfront homes.
As we enter the Wilmington river we will pass the old General Oglethorpe Hotel, built in1926 by famed architects Schultze and Weaver and rumored to have been a mob headquarters during the prohibition years.
Turning into the Skidaway River, we will pass by the Skidaway Island Institute of Oceanography with its impressive research vessels docked on the pier. This property was once owned by Robert Roebling, grandson of John Roebling who built the Brooklyn Bridge.
Further south we will pass beautiful Skidaway Island State Park and arrive at the Isle of Hope, an elegant Victorian watering spa featuring elegant antebellum homes on its famous Bluff Drive.
Guests may go ashore here to take refreshment and stretch their legs.
