Then make your way down river to Old Fort Jackson, home of one of the largest and oldest original artillery pieces in the country! Take advantage of the great photo opportunities of Savannah’s historic riverfront and skyline. Snacks and beverages are available on board.

The Georgia Queen holds up to 1,000 passengers and the Savannah River Queen holds up to 600 passengers.  Expect to cruise with at least a couple of hundred other people.  Swap your Viator voucher for a boarding pass in the ticket office prior to boarding.  Boarding begins 30 minutes prior to sailing.
