St. John’s River Cruise / Feb 21, 2024 / $111.00 p/p

More than a cruise, experience the best of Florida aboard the Barbara-Lee sternwheeler on the St. Johns River out of Sanford, Florida! The St. Johns Rivership Co. provides a different way to experience Florida. You will appreciate its wildlife, its beauty and its warmth. All while indulging in chef-prepared cuisine, live onboard entertainment and endless hospitality in climate-controlled comfort!

Family-owned and operated, the St. Johns Rivership Co. is the latest in a long line of sternwheelers that have been serving and sailing the St. Johns River for centuries. From our homeport on Lake Monroe in Historic Downtown Sanford, the Barbara-Lee cruises the St. Johns River while providing a one-of-a-kind cruise. With five decks, the Barbara-Lee can accommodate 194 guests and all enclosed decks are climate-controlled with air conditioning and heating.

The Rivership Barbara-Lee is the only authentic sternwheeler sailing the St. Johns River. Measuring 105 feet from stem to stern, the ship was built in 1986 and was extensively refurbished prior to its inaugural St. Johns River cruise in 2012. Featuring ornate wrought iron railings and massive wooden paddle wheels, the Barbara-Lee recalls the elegance of the steamers that once plied the St. Johns River between Jacksonville and Sanford.
