We certainly agree with Captains Tammy and Michael that a trip upstream on Savannah River to its like named city is well worth your while, with the understanding that your vessel might (or might not) be severely rocked by the bow wave of a passing freighter. However, with all the negative comments here on the Cruisers’ Net about the Savannah City Dock, we strongly suggest you coil your lines at SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, the Savannah Hyatt Docks.
I would save the visit to the historic section of savannah by taking the boat to the downtown city dock. You get an occasional wake but nothing horrible. The beauty is you are right in the center of the district with no need to deal with cars. If you do want to do some grocery shopping, they used to have a free bus that did a loop and stopped at a kroger grocery store.
Savannah is a great stop.
