Let BB Riverboats Show Your Students a Great Time

Nothing says, "unique and exciting school event" like a trip on one of the BB Riverboat vessels! From grade school to high school, BB Riverboats will put on a cruise your students are sure to remember as one of the highlights of their school year!

So Much Fun They’ll Forget They Are Learning!

As experts of the Ohio River and surrounding areas for more than three decades, our seasoned Captains and crew can help create an exciting educational experience for you and your students of all ages.  With both inside seating and outdoor viewing available, kids can explore the different floors of our vessels while learning about the history of Cincinnati via our speaker system. No need to go to a museum, where you spend too much time getting the kids to stay together and making sure they don’t knock over expensive art. BB Riverboats keeps your kids in one place, takes the pressure off teachers and chaperones, and give them a fun and educational experience your students will never forget!

A Prom Photo Backdrop like No Other

Don’t let the process of getting ready for prom be the most fun part of the night. Ditch the old school gyms and boring hotel ballrooms for a prom venue sure to make every other school jealous! Pick from our wide variety of menu options and dine in style inside one of our climate-controlled floors. Dance to your favorite music on our hardwood dance floors and then head out to the deck for stunning views of the Ohio River. Keep riding as the sun sets, and gather your friends for a perfect backdrop to your prom photos.

An After Party Venue You Won’t Forget

Anyone who’s been to prom, knows that the after party is just as important as prom itself. Don’t settle for an after party in your school’s gym, or a bunch of small parties at random friend’s houses! Book your after prom party at the most unique venue in Cincinnati—the downtown skyline at night is electric and the views of the Ohio River under starlight provide a sentimental setting that your entire party will cherish for a lifetime.
