Wheeler Lake Scenic Cruises offers guided lake cruises to the public and to private groups along the scenic coves and bluffs of Joe Wheeler State Park, the spectacular lower section of Wheeler Lake, and Lake Wilson. Groups of up to 24 passengers can take 1, 2, 4, or 8 hour excursions on the 36' Nautical Wheeler docked at Joe Wheeler Resort in Rogersville.
Rates are $10, $15, $25, or $45 per passenger (flat rate charge may apply, depending on group size). The 4 and 8 hour trips involve locking thru Wheeler Dam (twice) and sight-seeing on beautiful Lake Wilson. This U.S. Coast Guard inspected boat has a full-length roof, comfortable seating, and a nice restroom facility on board. Passengers are welcome to bring their own food and beverages on all trips, or they can dine at the beautiful Joe Wheeler Resort restaurant overlooking the lake.
Passengers on the 8 hour cruise will have the opportunity to lunch at the fabulous Swampers Grille, located inside the Marriott Shoals Hotel. Sunset Cruises are scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays every summer at Joe Wheeler Marina and are open to anyone, but you need to call ahead and make reservations (256-335-2187). Ask about the special offer for church groups for only $7 per person! Private group tours are available every day (even at night!)...year round!
