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 enchanting 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.
Dear Captain Lance,
This letter is written on behalf of the members of the New Jersey Society of Pennsylvania that cruised on the River Lady on September 14, 2015. Initially we want to thank you for the ease of working with you to arrange our outing that was executed with a high level of professionalism without exception. This is saying a lot since we were 104 senior citizens.
You exceeded our expectations regarding service, food and historic narration in addition to the perfect day we had for the outing. A few of our boat owner members mentioned that the high level of vessel maintenance impressed them. I am sure that our member’s experience will encourage others that we speak with to consider time on the River Lady.
Again, thank you for making our cruise a memorable experience.
Bill Kucker, Trip Coordinator
New Jersey Society of Pennsylvania
