Pop the question or take the plunge.
Love was in the air on a recent excursion aboard the River Gorge Explorer. While on the return leg of the Explorer's normal journey back to the Chattanooga Pier, the captains took a slight detour to the shoreline in front of the old catfish restaurant which is now a special events facility. And to the passengers' surprise, there was banner hung on the fence that read “Kimberly, will you be my Wife?” For one couple sitting on the port side, this was a very special moment. In front of about 36 passengers the young gentleman proposed to his girlfriend. And her reply was “YES!” The entire cabin came alive with applause and well wishes.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you might be looking for a romantic idea. If so, join us for a romantic cruise aboard the River Gorge Explorer on Saturday, February 14th. This two-hour sunset cruise takes you into the gorge-ous Grand Canyon of Tennessee where a naturalist will point out soaring eagles and fascinating sights with complimentary appetizers. Pop the question, renew your vows or even tie the knot! Our captains are ordained ministers if you bring the license and witness. A cash bar will be available for wine, beer and soft drinks.
