I think tourists would be disappointed. But as a local I am glad I went once.

We did enjoy it well enough for what we paid (thank you Groupon). Had we paid full price it would have been more disappointing. It is something I have wanted to do for a long... read more

I have done two trips aboard the Edmonton River Queen now, several years apart, and all I can say is… its not bad. It could be SO MUCH MORE THOUGH! Have you ever been to Mexico or the Dominican Republic and done a boat cruise? If so you will know exactly what I am talking about. The staff is entertaining... More

We had a large group, children, teens, elderly. Everyone enjoyed the view. Drinks were very costly. Smell of smoke almost to much sometimes. Cant get very far. Not many places to sit with a good view when there is a good turn out! May try it again for a dinner cruise one day.

We were a party of four, out celebrating my parents' anniversary. The morning of our dinner cruise, my mom phoned the office to ensure the boat was actually going to cruise as we'd heard that due to low water levels, the boat was not always leaving the dock. She was assured that the boat would cruise. When we arrived, we... More

Took evening dinner cruise with 2 friends (4 of us in total). Left dock early due to low tide we were told (didn't know rivers had tides!). Told river low due to not opening gates of the dam (didn't know North Saskatchewan River had locks or dam gates) and water low due to fires in BC and Saskatchewan!!! Wow, explanations... More

Couldn't do the whole tour because the river was so low, but was very enjoyable nonetheless. Staff was wonderful! They even provide cart service for those who need a little help getting up the hill to the parking lot

I live in Edmonton, but have never been on Edmonton Queen Riverboat. I must admit, it was not the Niagra Falls boat experience. But it was 10 bucks on a groupon and an outing on the river which lasted 2 hrs, with 45 min of actual boating. We went at lunch and the meal prices were reasonable, 12$ for an... More

We went on the dinner cruise. Perfect night with good weather. Would have enjoyed some more history instead of prerecorded (?) info on the boat which was hard to hear. The main course was good, the beef excellent. Dessert table a bit of a shambles. So enjoyed the ambiance of a mixed crowd of couples, families, seniors. We were so... More

Staff were friendly, although the making reservation and checking in I did worry - seemed disorganized. Boat is shabby, could use freshening up. Bathrooms didn't feel clean. Precise was cheap, which explained the short "cruise". I wouldn't recommend.

I have always wanted to go on the Edmonton Queen and was surprised for my birthday with tickets to sail. We, arrived an hour before sail time and boarded the vessel. It was a fairly nice day so we sat outside on the top deck and enjoyed a nice glass of wine and the scenery as we waited to set... More
