As long time Jersey Shore residents, we're interested in local history and the River Lady's web site ad caught our attention: “Come sail with us for an elegant lunch as we cruise on the beautiful Toms River and Barnegat Bay. A narrated tour will be presented for your enjoyment.” Seven of us booked the 3 hour extended lunch cruise expecting a Toms River & Barnegat Bay history lesson along with a nice lunch. We had a nice lunch, but missed the history lesson and saw very little of Barnegat Bay. The noise level on the top deck drowned out the narrative; when we complained, we were told there was nothing that could be done. How about head sets?
For some reason, the River Lady never entered Barnegat Bay, but rather cruised around the Toms River; sort of like circling Newark Airport when there's a travel delay. We're still awaiting the history lesson and the tour of Barnegat Bay.
