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.

The river and the houses on shore make a wonderful view. Watching the "real"paddle wheel can be mesmerizing. The food is good. What a combination!
