Public Cruises

The Mimosa Cruise – Bring Your Own Champagne

The USS Mimosa runs Friday through Sunday with two morning cruises. This cruise is the best way to start your day in Nashville. This is a BYOC cruise, so make sure to bring aboard your favorite bottle(s) of Champagne. We provide a variety of juices for mimosas, as well as cups, ice, and coolers. Don’t want to lug champagne from the store? Don’t fret! We have you covered with ‘Mosa, a Southern Grist Brewing Co-inspired Mimosa Fruited Sour Ale (trust us—you’ll want to try this!). Our deckhand will keep everyone’s bottles organized and iced, so your only priority is enjoying the views, dancing, and snapping the best pics for your crew. Of course, you can bring on other beverages if you rather sip & cruise with beer or seltzers. This is one of our most popular public cruises and is a perfect bachelorette party cruise option for a group size from 2–20 guests. You should pick this cruise if you want a full day in Nashville, love mimosas, and you like to get your day going with a bang. You can expect to start the cruise by enjoying your mimosa and the views, hashing out the weekend with the group, and then in no time you’ll be dancing and mingling with the whole boat. You will be partying on the boat with other like-minded groups who are so excited to help celebrate a bride!

Pontoon Party Cruise

Our afternoon Pontoon Party Cruise is the best pregame for a night on Broadway. We specialize in our public party cruises that are a favorite for group sizes of 1–16 who enjoy a guided party experience. Our public cruises are a bar-style atmosphere, amplified with your Deckhand showcasing hit tunes and engaging games that bring a crowd together on the dance floor. Our cruises are favored as a “must do” in Nashville for a reason! This is also a BYOB cruise (beer, wine, liquor, champagne), or you can pre-purchase buckets of beer or seltzers for your group. We provide all the coolers, ice, cups, mixers, and water on the boat! This is the perfect bachelorette booze cruise for the bride who wants a fun day-drinking activity and epic group pictures you can’t get anywhere else. You can expect our Deckhands to need volunteers for special activities, so prep your bride or maid of honor to bring their best moves! Our cruises depart across from lower Broadway, so our daytime party cruises can work into your itinerary for a post-brunch or pre-honky tonk outing. Don’t miss out on this party!

Sunsets & Skylines Cruise

The evening cruise brings the best nighttime skyline views of Downtown Nashville. Our captains will first cruise downriver for a picturesque sunset only available aboard the Pontoon Saloon. As the sun sets, drinks flow and the party starts to hit the dance floor. You’ll be cruising by Broadway soaking up all the city lights. This is also a BYOB cruise (beer, wine, liquor, champagne), or you can pre-purchase buckets of beer or seltzers for your group. We provide all the coolers, ice, cups, mixers, and water on the boat! The Sunsets & Skylines Cruise definitely has the prettiest views of the day with the neon rainbow of lights from the city skyline and bridges. The sunset boat cruise is great for the bachelorette party that wants a fun happy hour with beautiful scenery—complete with that instagrammable moment. This cruise is more about soaking up the views and mingling with your group or the new friends you meet on board. However, there’s still plenty of entertainment and dancing that will take place (it is the Pontoon Saloon, after all!). We recommend this cruise to start your night out in Nashville, then take a quick walk over the bridge to go all out at the Honky Tonks.

BACH Party Cruise

This is the ultimate bachelorette party boat experience in Nashville. We bring the party together by combining bachelor and bachelorette parties, including alcohol (beer & seltzers), koozies, music, and games. We provide beer & seltzers, which include an unlimited variety of White Claws, Miller Lite, Coors Light, and assorted variety. This is a two-hour cruise with a capacity of up to 45 passengers, and we typically have reservations for about 3–5 different bachelorette or bachelor groups. We recommend booking this cruise as soon as possible. We only offer a few time slots for this cruise, so it does sell out in advance! This booze cruise is for the Party Bride and for any group size who wants an all-inclusive experience with unforgettable entertainment provided by our Deckhand. Expect to be mingling, dancing, and boozing to the best mix of tunes while cruising down the Cumberland River. It’s the best honky tonk booze cruise on the water!

Luxury Private Cruises

Private Bachelorette Party Cruise

Does your bride prefer a private bachelorette party boat? We offer a luxury private cruise option perfect for those bachelorette parties who want to party with just their crew. Our Captain and Deckhand will take care of all your needs on board—from music and drinks to snapping all the photo ops you need. Whether it be morning, afternoon, or happy hour, you’ll have the ability to choose the music, add catering and alcohol service, and decorate the boat to your liking! Our private boat has lounge seating (if you need some sun), a catering table (for brunch, lunch, or apps), a bar area, sound system & microphone, and a restroom on board. We recommend this cruise for group sizes of 16 or more who would like the option to BYOB or pre-purchase alcohol to have set up upon your arrival. If you want to deliver a high-end and memorable experience for your bride, then the Private Bachelorette Party Cruise is the one for you!
