Plan a custom trip on this sleek vessel or join one of our daily cruises to transport your guests from downtown Chattanooga into “Tennessee’s Grand Canyon.” Designed for performance and passenger comfort, you’ll see why this experience has been described as “part thrill ride, part scenic tour.” With accommodations for up to 70 passengers, the Explorer includes audio visual, an outdoor top deck, and enclosed cabin to make the trip enjoyable in any weather. Daily two-hour cruises are led by an Aquarium naturalist who points out wildlife and historic points of interest along the way.

Private Cruises—This high tech, high speed vessel is the perfect place for you and your guests to sip cocktails on a private cruise while enjoying breathtaking views of the Gorge as well as the Chattanooga Riverfront. Whether it is a special occasion with family and friends, or a relaxing company cruise, the River Gorge Explorer can be chartered for all kinds of events making it both flexible and fun!
