Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • An elegant, two-story classic riverboat, complete with a gently turning paddlewheel, the River Queen departs from her home dock in charming Brielle—an easy drive from NYC and within minutes of plenty of lodging options.
  • Wed right on board (yes, the captain does ceremonies!), then cruise the calm inland waters of the Manasquan and Metedeconk Rivers and Barnegat Bay as you enjoy views of the glittering shoreline and dance beneath the stars.
  • An extra-long charter season—mid-April through late December—gives you lots of flexibility when choosing your date. Catering is provided through the ship’s fantastic in-house executive chef.
