From Hutchinson Island, overlooking River Street. All boats are welcome on Savanna River, from floating skyscrapers aka ocean-going vessels and their accompanying tugs, to those cute and colourful Belles ferry boats that provide free transit across the river, in style.

The Savannah Belles Ferry fleet includes four vessels named in honour of four distinguished women from Savannah’s history: Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the first American Girl Scout troops, Susie King Taylor, who gained her freedom from slavery at the age 14 and went on become a nurse during the Civil War and later opened one of Savannah’s first schools for African-American children, Florence Martus, the Waving Girl, and Mary Musgrove, a Native American who served as an interpreter for General Oglethorpe during the founding of Savannah.
