The Bama Belle Riverboat

Take a cruise on the Bama Belle Riverboat. Built in 1969 this is a true paddlewheel boat. When you're out on the Black Warrior River traveling on the Bama Belle it's like taking a step back in time.

They offer a dinner cruise on Fridays and site seeing tours on Saturday and Sunday. Leave from Tuscaloosa on the Black Warrior River and travel about eight miles past the Holt Dam above North River. The trips takes about two and a half hours. The Bama Belle can accommodate 149 people and is great for parties, groups, and family reunions. Come down and experience the river the way it was in the 1800’s. When you’re traveling on the Bama Belle, it’s like taking a step back in time.
