I have been a D.J. for over 20 years, and have been in countless venues. I needed a location for a very special birthday party for my wife. I had heard only good feedback on the River Queen, so I decided to check it out. I found their accommodations and prices more than reasonable. Sharon immediately treated me as if I was an old friend, and bent over backwards to meet my needs. I originally booked on January 27th, 2020, for a luncheon party of possibly 85 people on May 23rd, 2020. Thanks to Covid 19, we were unable to have the party on that date. Sharon worked with me through the summer, and we finally had our party, with 60 guests, on October 3rd. Captain Tony was very friendly, and handled the vessel with pinpoint precision! Chief Stew, Roz, was exceptional! She treated my wife like royalty, and her crew were extremely accommodating to all our guests. All my our guests raved about the food and service, and what a fun, enjoyable trip they had. My wife and I were overwhelmed at all the positive feedback we have received. I have already been told of four of our guests planning to book the River Queen for events of their own. My wife and I, along with our friends and families, would like to say. . . "Thank you Bogan family for providing us with such a unique and relaxing environment, in the most professional manner."
