Traverse the area’s waterways or throw a dockside party - whichever you choose, any reunion aboard the Carrie B Showboat will become an annual event!


Class field trips, fully narrated educational tours, sorority and fraternity parties - no matter the age group or class type, the Carrie B Showboat can accommodate your school group. Transform the upper deck into a dance floor and it becomes the ideal place for proms and homecoming dances. Or have a seated dinner for your alumni gathering or reunion on our climate controlled lower deck. Special student packages are available, please contact us for complete details.
