When asked what makes his company successful, Capt. Claughton mused, “If you give good service, the public will flock to the waterfront and enjoy what you have to offer. I cannot help to think this is the winning formula if you run a small ferry boat or a multi-state excursion operation.” When asked about the future, Claughton said, “We will continue to be a center stage fixture on River Street. We have seen a slow and steady growth through the years. I know we will continue to expand.” This expansion has led to the arrival, in 2016, of a new riverboat and new tours. The riverboat tours leave the dock right next to the exact location where General Oglethorpe first landed on the river front and head upriver, into the Port of Savannah, and then turn around and head back under the Eugene Talmadge Memorial Bridge and past the historic river front. The tours continue downriver passing the world famous Waving Girl, Florence Martus, through the ship yards and just past the tip of Hutchinson Island and Old Fort Jackson. There, the boat circles back upriver to arrive gently back at the dock. Photo: Izzy Hudgins experience
