Overview

The River Lady is a 150 passenger, authentic reproduction of a paddle wheel riverboat which splendidly captures the ambiance of a 19th century Mississippi paddleboat. She is the only stern-wheeler in the state of New Jersey. We offer sightseeing, lunch and dinner cruises, while sailing down the Toms River into the Barnegat Bay. Please see our website for details.

Five of us decided to get together to take the River Lady Historical Lunch Cruise. It was a fun day. Unfortunately, since we were catching up, we didn't listen to much of the historical piece. Will have to do again. Thanks for a great cruise.
