We highly recommend The River Queen for weddings or any party! We got married 9/23 in the midst of a tropical storm. We weren’t able to sail out BUT that did not stop us from having the best wedding and time on The River Queen. The staff were AMAZING. So attentive from beginning to end! My guests raved about how good the food was, especially the scallops. The boat itself is spacious and so quaint. We’d love to go for a dinner cruise next to grasp the whole experience. Over all 10000/10. Thanks again!
