Join us for a delightful cruise on the River Lady, a 150 passenger, 85′ authentic reproduction of a paddle wheel riverboat.
The River Lady splendidly captures the ambiance of a 19th century Mississippi Paddleboat.The interior design of the lower deck is of the Victorian style. The deck is completely enclosed and is climate controlled for year-round comfort.
The upper deck offers awesome views and is the perfect atmosphere for outdoor waterside dining. This deck is covered and can be enclosed with translucent weather panels should the need arise.
As you enter through the beautifully etched glass door, you will be impressed by the detail of the design. The custom made mahogany woodwork complements the brass wall sconces and draperies. The center of the interior deck offers a spacious dance floor, which is naturally lit by a skylight window directly above.
The tables are arranged so passengers can enjoy the view while dining. The River Lady offers a public address sound system, with music, for your listening enjoyment. The upper deck offers a small dance floor, and is the perfect atmosphere for sightseeing and pure relaxation.
The River Lady cruises the Toms River and Barnegat Bay of New Jersey. The riverbanks are surrounded by charming hills and beautifully manicured lawns and gardens. The homes along the river are uniquely designed, many dating back to the turn of the century.
The River Lady is the only true stern-wheeler in the state. River Lady is a documented vessel, inspected and licensed by the United States Coast Guard.
There is nothing more that you can say but.........GO ENJOY!

What a relaxing way to spend lunchtime.
Our cruise was just the right amount of time. Food was excellent and the wait staff were attentive and courteous. The history of the river and surrounding area was shared by the very knowledgable captain. Thumbs up all around.

The Captain's Dinner Cruise was awesome.
We brought most of the family and had an excellent experience. The food was good, the staff was superb, and the Bananaberry Daiquiri was phenomenal. Extremely relaxing. Can't wait to go again!

"Date night w/hubby"
We wanted to do something a little different and this was wonderful. I had the salmon and hubby had chicken parm. Food was very good, service was excellent and dinner cruise was very relaxing. I look forward to doing it again - we might try one of the daytime cruises. Highly recommend!!
