Blount River Cruises

In the 1960’s, Luther Blount began offering cabins on his family's cruising vacations to friends, and when he had to start a waiting list he realized he might be onto something. In 1965, he decided to offer his friends and family a chance to travel to the incredible destinations he’d been exploring, so he began building unique passenger boats and by 1966 Blount Small Ship Adventures was born.  Blount Small Ships have been built with the purpose of bringing travelers to places that larger ships simply cannot go, with patented designs that allow our ships to slip, with inches to spare, under the lowest bridges on a canal, and fit through tight transit locks. It was all thanks to Luther’s invention — the Retractable Pilot House.
