Spring 2020 cruises will begin mid-April and run through the end of the school year. Fall programs will begin mid-September. We can also schedule cruises throughout the summer for camps and enrichment programs.
Programs can be reserved on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Other days can be reserved on a case-by-case basis.
Boarding begins at 9:15 a.m. and programs run from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Program times can be changed 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 Queen City Riverboats, located in Dayton, Kentucky. This is just upstream of the downtown Cincinnati area. The boat travels upstream near the Combs-Hehl (I-275) bridge during regular programs.
