Knoxville, TN - Beginning June 14th, Father’s Day weekend and every second weekend from Knoxville, TN.
These 170 mile round trips will cover the most beautiful parts of the Tennessee River. They will include a lock-through at Fort Loudon Lock with its 75 foot drop/lift, an overnight motel stay in Kingston, meals and morning/afternoon snacks except for dinner at RedBones on the River.

Be sure to bring your camera and extra batteries to record this memorable opportunity to enjoy the homes, spring flowers and birds along our winding River. Follow your trip past the 33 sites identified on our itinerary and river charts that we provide. You can make notes as we go. We will see Little River, Jones Bend/Blount Co Park, Louisville Point Park, Little Tennessee River, Tennessee National Golf Course plus Paint Rock and Long Island wildlife management areas. We will pass under at least nine bridges, by two dams and a commercial barge fleeting area. We will past Louisville, Farragut, Tellico, Lenoir City and Loudon before arriving in Kingston.

Most river cruises cost as much at $565 per day but ours is under $150. We get you closer to the sights and sounds along the way at a relaxed pace. You will have plenty of time to share sights with other guests. TRACE 1 has a restroom, comfortable seating, sound system, cooler and you have room to walk the deck or try your hand at steering a passenger vessel. We will stop at Fort London Marina before or after locking-through if you need to steady your “sea legs” a bit.

In keeping with our Green Vessel Certification we ask that you please make reservations through our online, paperless reservation system at We also offer regular Civil War History cruises Friday through Sunday at 3:00 and 5:15pm.
