CLOSED INDEFINITELY


Due to the order from Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear stemming from the outbreak of COVID-19, BB Riverboats is closed until further notice. We will be closely monitoring the virus and its impact on the Commonwealth of Kentucky. When new directives are passed along by the Governors Office that allows us to open up, we will do so. If you are in need of immediate assistance, please call our office at 800-261-8586, and a member of our team will return your call as quickly as possible. Please note, that due to the nature of this epidemic, there will be delays in returning your call. Rest assured, that we will return your call as quickly as possible and we will remedy any issue you face. You can also email us at info@bbriverboats.com, but the same delays will be expected. BB Riverboats and the Bernstein Family wish all of you and your families the very best during this trying time for our community. We fully anticipate returning to our normal operation of business after this passes and hope to see all of you onboard when that time comes.

Directions to BB Riverboats

We’d love to pick you up, but our boats don’t have wheels, so here is how to find us!

All of our cruises leave from Newport Landing Dock, which is located at 101 Riverboat Row, at the foot of Columbia St. adjacent to Newport Aquarium. Don’t worry about paying for parking; we’ve got you covered! Public Parking is available on Riverboat Row and in the surface lot on Columbia St.

One last thing! We know you love your GPS, but don’t use it to find us. Because we are located on the water, your phone won’t know how to get you here. If you have any questions go to our contact page and we would be happy to help you!
