For several years I have had the pleasure of enjoying the Sunday church service on the Pride. It's a wonderful time to reflect on life as you enjoy the water. Shall we gather at the River ?

It was a charming boat ride but there isn't much to see. The children on board enjoyed the experience. There is some history of the river given while you cruise.

Nice way to spend an enjoyable afternoon. Recorded narration occasionally augmented by the captain. Cruise runs about 50 minutes.

This was a very informative tour with very friendly boat staff willing to take pictures of couples if needed. The recording covered facts about the river itself as well as history about the city. Great Fun!!

This was a nice tour. We were hoping for a relaxing tour, but there just happened to be a daycare on the tour with us. It was a little hectic with kids running all over the place, but otherwise we enjoyed.

I don't know. I live in TN now. There was a sign at the bridge entrance th last time I was there that had information. Sounds like fun!
How do I inquire of buying tickets, where is the embarking station, and what are the times of the cruises?
