Get out and experience Chattanooga’s natural beauty aboard the River Gorge Explorer. This 70-passenger, hydrofoil-assisted, vessel transports passengers smoothly along the waters of the Tennessee River. Each excursion is led by an Aquarium naturalist who points out wildlife and historic points of interest along the way.

The River Gorge Cruise heads past the foot of Lookout Mountain and into the heart of “Tennessee’s Grand Canyon.” There's time to enjoy the scenic views from the topside observation deck while searching for wildlife. The last cruise of the day is a sunset cruise.
