The staff was friendly. The coffee was good and not a RIP off. We docked at a perfect location. Had time for a trolley tour and some lunch. After the trolley tour I would definitely recommend visiting Savannah this way as traffic did not look very user friendly.

A 30 minute ride in a car to Savannah from HH. 2 hour boat ride. Nothing to see along the shore except gas refineries. Then you have only 3 1/2 hours in Savannah. My husband loves a boat ride every vacation but he was disappointed. Also could not hear intercom system.

Relaxing boat ride in December. Sure beats driving. Enjoyed a beautiful day in Savannah. The time flew by. Wish we had another hour or so.

The trip wasn’t particularly scenic but a fun ride in November. Saw dolphins and savanna harbor. Private bus tour for passengers was arranged. Easy to get around with a cane
