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

I have taken this cruise a few times. It's a relaxing ride on the river. The captain narrates the sights as well as tells corny jokes. How can you not like that? There is also a snack bar and a drink bar on board. They have the best Bloody Mary! This trip is exceptional in the fall with the trees... More

We decided to do the scenic tour in the fall which we did see beautiful fall colors! It got a little boring though...by the end of the trip we were so ready to get off. They did have good entertainment on the boat though! If you like sitting on a boat for two hours and looking at the scenery, then... More

Traveling to the Oscoda area is an annual event for my family and every time we go, if we do nothing else, we have to go on the Au Sable River Queen. The scenery is beautiful and Captain Roger and his crew provide an entertaining and informative tour of the river. The music is good, the jokes are groaners but... More

My daughter and I stopped here on July 15th and I was going to purchase tickets for a 3 PM tour...we were there about 2:30 PM. There was a tiny Shih Tzu running loose in the parking lot and my daughter picked it up because we thought she'd get hit...or stolen. We walked over and asked a man on the... More
