Life Family Fun

Take A Cruise On The Barefoot Princess Riverboat In Myrtle Beach

By Life, Family Fun Team

Updated on March 31, 2023

riverboat tours myrtle beach

On our recent visit to Myrtle Beach, SC we had the pleasure to cruise on the beautiful Barefoot Princess Riverboat .      Riverboat cruises have a special place in my heart. The Barefoot Princess is the only riverboat cruise in the Myrtle Beach area which makes it even more special. My family and I truly had an unforgettable time that evening enjoying the beauty of the river, the food, the entertainment and each other’s company. My family and I even got to steer the boat!

About The Barefoot Princess Riverboat

The Barefoot Princess is 64 feet long and 24 feet wide. Not only is she a beautiful riverboat, she can hold 130 passengers, so she’s a good size. There are three floors on the ship so there is plenty of room to move around. They serve dinner on the main floor, a cash bar on the second with some dancing and music, and really amazing sight seeing on the open third floor.

Welcome Aboard

As you walk on the boat, you’ll see the boat is designed to be welcoming. We entered the boat through the lower level and we were welcomed by the dining room, which was set up beautifully. I think at that point, my stomach got a little excited by the dinner I knew was soon to follow.

Friendly Staff

When you first walk up to the Barefoot Princess Riverboat, you are greeted by very friendly staff. It was invigorating to see someone smiling at you and excited to see you. There is just something about a friendly warm smile that makes any experience that much better.

Bar and Drinks

There is also an exclusive bar and drink option on the boat. I did notice that they had a nice selection of mixed and bar drinks available. Plus, you can walk up there to get whatever you want and the bar tender is more than happy to accommodate you.

Music and Dancing

If you’re a huge fan of music and dancing, like I am, then you’ll love this part of the Barefoot Princess Riverboat Cruise. It’s such a fun part of the experience. The musician was welcoming in letting others join in on the fun. The music was REALLY a nice touch to experience on a 2 hour dinner cruise.

entertainment on princess barefoot dinner cruise

Enjoying a relaxing evening on a boat is one thing, but experiencing it on the Intercoastal Waterway is phenomenal. The trees along the bank of the river are beautiful. The water is sparkling and when we went, the weather was perfect. A really neat thing about the Barefoot Princess is that she runs, even if it’s raining. They are able to do this because the 1 st and 2 nd decks are enclosed and are even climate controlled.

Princess Barefoot River Boat Myrtle Beach

The Barefoot Princess Riverboat has an amazing menu. Each cruise has either a lunch or dinner listed and it includes food and drinks. You’ll notice that there is also a snack bar for you to purchase various drinks and snacks from. Our particular dinner cruise which was a more casual cruise included hamburgers and hot dogs and all the fixings. It was so yummy we had to go back for seconds!

Barefoot Princess Riverboat Cruise Food

If you’re in the Myrtle Beach area and looking for something to do, the Barefoot Princess Riverboat Cruise is something your family will remember for years to come. You may also want to check out my recommendations of Top 15 Things To Do in Myrtle Beach .

That sounds like it would be a lot of fun. I love being able to go out on boats. They’re always a lot of fun. I’d love to be able to bring my girls sometime too.

This looks like such a great time, I am glad you were able to enjoy it!

Top 5 Riverboat Tours on the Grand Strand

Everyone knows about the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. Featuring a 60-mile stretch of white sand beaches, the Grand Strand attracts millions annually to soak up the sun, sand and surf where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Carolina coast. But there’s another side to local life, one that is accessible only by boat through the backwaters around Myrtle Beach. Here are the top five riverboat cruises to take if you want to see a different side of the Strand:

Barefoot Princess : Take a relaxing ride down the Intracoastal Waterway aboard this luxurious riverboat cruise. Moored at the Barefoot Marina behind Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, the three-story, 64 x 24 foot vessel takes up to 130 passengers for an amazing tour of a side of the Grand Strand most vacationers never see. Check out the views of beautiful homes on both banks and the scenic sight of sunset to the west from the observation deck, or enjoy music and dancing in the air-conditioned areas on the first two floors. The Barefoot Princess offers three different tours the Sightseeing Cruise, Sunset Cruise and Dinner Cruise. Reservations can be made at www.mbriverboat.com .

Brookgreen Gardens : This former rice and indigo plantation turned botanical garden is best known for the beautiful works of art and nature that adorn the 9,000-acre property, and the Lowcountry Wildlife and Petting Zoo and Gullah Cultural Center are also popular attractions among guests. But the best-kept secret about this Murrells Inlet destination are the riverboat cruises that are offered to guests during the fall months. Visitors board small boats to tour the tidal creeks and rivers that border the property. The Big and Little Pee Dee Rivers, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Waccamaw River converge nearby to create swampy and scenic photo ops, and passengers can also see the old rice fields, alligators and rare birds of prey. For more information, visit www.brookgreen.org .

Plantation River Tours : The South Carolina Lowcountry is filled with old plantation homes, rice fields, slave quarters and other relics from the state's antebellum history, but most were built on the water and are reachable only by boat. The rivers that surround the Waccamaw Neck area in Murrells Inlet offers access to another place in time, and Plantation River Tours has a variety of boats and tours to choose from. The Waccamaw Lady is a 60-foot pontoon boat that carries passengers on a lazy ride past several points of interest, and your captain/tour guide Dale Prox is a local historian with a wealth of information about the area. The Waccamaw Cooter is an elongated air boat that takes passengers for a wild ride through the backwaters of the Lowcountry. For more information, visit www.plantationrivertours.com .

Rover Boat Tours : Why take a riverboat when you can take a rover boat? This 40-foot pontoon boat sails out of Winyah Bay in Georgetown and carries passengers for a slow ride along the coastline for views of bird sanctuaries, lighthouses, shipwrecks and the abundant wildlife that call the Lowcountry home. This 3 to 4 hour trip offers a unique view of the waters and wetlands along the barrier islands of the South Carolina coast. For more information, visit www.roverboattours.com .

Wacammaw River Tours : The Waccamaw River is a winding waterway that runs from Lake Waccamaw just over the North Carolina border to Winyah Bay in Georgetown, SC. Consisting of dark waters that wind through dense woodlands and pristine wetlands, the Waccamaw offers a scenic view of the Grand Strand's natural side. Among the many sites passengers can encounter are a national wildlife refuge, former rice plantations and the Wacatee Zoo, where it's not uncommon to see an elephant taking a bath in the river and other exotic animals roaming the shore. Enjoy a glass of wine while you wind down the Waccamaw and soak up all the sights and sounds. For more information, visit www.waccamawrivertours.com .

Come explore by boat, and see what all there is to offer! Enjoy your stay at Paradise Resort, Myrtle Beach!

Murrells Inlet's Greatest Cruises

My girlfriend’s and I celebrated a birthday on this enchanted sunset cruise. Our Captain was professional, lovely, knowledgeable, engaging and fun. The boat is a beautiful vessel. A perfect BYOB mermaid sunset adventure! Thank you for such a memorable experience! A jewel of Merrill’s Inlet! Highly recommend for a romantic evening, group of friends or families with children. They have a special adventure for everyone!

"Our 5 year old absolutely loved it and for a month afterward has been asking about every other day if we can go again! Our 2 year old was a bit young and not sure what to think. It was a full adventure for the kids, finding things onboard, a water cannon fight with a "pirate," celebrating with fruit juice, etc. The crew had amazing energy and made sure all the kids had a fantastic time! I can't recommend this enough for people with young kids. I'd estimate it's best for 3-8 year olds. And it was a fantastic value. For our kids, this was the highlight of a week in and around Myrtle Beach."

"What a peaceful and pleasant evening cruise! The Captain and his Mate were very hospitable and meet our every need. The scenes were breathtaking and not only did we see the sun set but we captured the full moon arising and it was beyond words. Of course God is the master of the sun, moon, stars and our lives but He outdid Himself on this one and these folks were used of Him to escort us into the scene."

Description About Waccamaw Cooter Airboat Tours

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind airboat tour that leaves from Wacca Wache Marina and takes you along the Waccamaw, Black, and Pee Dee Rivers, where no ordinary boat can take you. While you are on your airboat tour, you will be surrounded by the beautiful outdoors and all it has to offer. The tour may offer close encounters with some of nature’s most awe-inspiring creatures, from native alligators to regal ospreys. Ride through backwaters framed by moss-laden oak and cypress trees on your airboat tour!

You will be amazed if you come across a monstrous alligator in its home water. These creatures are beautiful in their natural habitat, and coming across one is a memory worth making! The Osprey is another amazing sight to see. You may even get to see an Osprey dive down and catch themselves a delightful fish dinner. These birds will fly high over their prey, dive down, and completely submerge themselves to catch fish. It is truly magnificent if you get to see either one of these animals on a Waccamaw Cooter Airboat Tour!

Although they tour in a National Wildlife Refuge, wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.

The Waccamaw Cooter Airboat Tour lasts about an hour and seats up to 12 people. Each guest riding the airboat will be given a lifejacket to wear as a safety precaution. Book online or call the office for reservations!

Great experience

Went on a boat ride during late morning. It was a once in a lifetime experience. We were lucky enough to see a large and baby gator. If you’re think about booking, do it.
