This is a wonderful boat trip. Very relaxing and wonderful to see the beautiful AuSable River. WE got to see the sand dunes, saw many boats on the river. Saw the beautiful swans on the river also.

This was a 2 hour,19 mile trip on the au sable river. The captain pointed out anything interesting along the way. He even had several jokes, 1 of which may have been funny (the frog). I suggest taking this cruise in the Fall, as it would be outstanding to see all of the color in the hills. The seating and... More

The River Boat was a great place to be on a rainy, chilly day. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We enjoyed drinks from the bar, snacks from the snack bar and live entertainment. We plan a return visit!

I was a little worried when we arrived for our reserved boat ride. The gift shop seemed a little chintzy, so I worried the ride would be the same. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were all very friendly-from the captain greeting you and wishing you a goodbye, to the bartender and snack bar worker-everyone seemed... More

We were in Oscoda for our anniversary and thought we would give this 'Love Boat' a chance. I was glad we did. We sat on the lower level in front. Got us away from the engine noise, and out of the direct sound of the One Man Band. Were still were able to hear the jokes from the captain, and... More

The River Queen is a must do when in the Oscoda area. It is nice to have a pleasant relaxing 2 hour ride on the AuSable river. Any time is good but it is especially nice during the fall color season in Sep-Oct.

I was very pleased with the cruise as I wanted to cruise along the river looking at the fall colors. The staff was very helpful and I had no problem finding the location with my GPS (Verizon navigator). I was traveling with my dog and asked if I could take her on the cruise and surprisingly they agreed as long... More

It's difficult to think of anything positive about our experience so here it is. The GPS doesn't know how to find the location but the man on the phone was friendly & helpful and we found it easily after speaking with him. The people in the gift shop were nice. While waiting for boarding we noticed that there was live... More
