From the time you board the Betsy Ann Riverboat, in total wonder and amazement, until the time you step off of the boat hugging the crew members goodbye…We promise you an experience that will create memories to last a lifetime. Come aboard…close your eyes…listen to the paddles slapping the water in perfect time…and let your mind wander! There is no better way to enjoy the beautiful waters and scenery of historic St Andrews Bay, than on a true old fashioned paddle wheel boat. Regardless of your age, young or old, you will find yourself thinking back to the days of old, when paddle wheelers were the modern marvel of their time…the days of Mr. Mark Twain! Come learn a little history about the Betsy Ann, the St Andrew Bay, the area and more. Come enjoy the peacefulness of just being on the water. See lots of playful dolphins, watch the pelicans flying in formation just inches above the water or diving from the air to catch a fish. Listen to the echo of the cannon blast as we pass under the Hathaway Bridge. You can even come up in the pilot house with the captain, get to steer the boat and get your picture taken with the huge wheel!
The Betsy Ann crew is second to none in North Florida…guaranteed. From service to personality and a 110% dedication to making sure you leave us with great memories. We have a full bar along with friendly bartenders, heated and air conditioned main cabin for your comfort, open air upper deck for your viewing pleasure, and the coolest restrooms you will ever find on a boat! ( I do have to admit that they may be a little more modern than what they had back in the riverboat era.) The boat is fully decorated to reflect the old steamboat days and our girls even dress the part! Looking for a great place for a private party or wedding, well look no further! From corporate meetings, to birthday, anniversary, family reunions or whatever, we promise to make it a memorable and spectacular time! Our weddings are very unique, personalized and incredible! We also have all of the core decorations for your perfect day, and you can add your own personal touch too! You can even be married by the captain! The Betsy Ann is beautiful, (OK, we may be a little proud of her), the scenery is spectacular, and the memories will last a lifetime! We can’t wait to entertain you on the BETSY ANN RIVERBOAT!
