Haunted Harbor Cruises are a favorite Savannah Attractions

Haunted Harbor Cruises are a favorite Savannah attractions each year on Friday nights beginning in April and ending in October.  Boarding begins at 9pm and the River Street Riverboat leaves port at 9:30pm returning at 11pm.

As the seasons begin to change and the time of Halloween nears, wouldn't it be a delight to take a Haunted Harbor Cruise and discover if old habits and practices of hags, haunts and 'Da Buzzard Man' have long gone from Georgia or does the veil of mysticism still cast in shadow influence over the sea islands.

Come and see for yourself as you voyage along the Savannah River on board the River Street Riverboat followed by a restful night in one of Savannah Historic Inns.
