Spring cruises typically begin in mid-April and run through the end of the school year. Fall programs typically begin in mid-September. We can also schedule cruises throughout the summer for camps and enrichment programs.
Programs can be reserved throughout the week depending staff availability.
Program times are typically held in the morning to accommodate BB Riverboat’s cruise schedule, but times can sometimes vary if necessary.
Special floating classroom programs for camps, youth, and community groups are reserved on a case-by-case basis.
Elementary and Middle School programs are limited to 50 students with a minimum of three adult chaperones.
High School programs are limited to 40 students with a minimum of three adult chaperones.
The fee for this program is currently $15 per student. A group minimum charge of $400 applies for groups less than 27 students.
Thanks to the generosity of our funders, FORE is able to offer discounts for schools with 25% or more of students on free and reduced lunch programs. We have never turned a school away due to cost!
Fees for special programs such as camps, youth and community groups will vary depending on time and activities.
Programs get underway at BB Riverboats in Newport, Kentucky.
