Beef and Bourbon Tasting & Crab Cruise Aboard the Riverboat Queen



Summer is winding down, but there are still a few more weeks before the weather becomes too cool to set sail down the Christina River.

Next week there will be a Beef & Bourbon Tasting  and Crab Cruise Aboard the Riverboat Queen in Wilmington.



On August 23rd, you can set sail on the Riverboat Queen for an evening of delicious barbecue and a taste of various vintages of bourbon on the water! Enjoy a complimentary Old Forrester Manhattan while boarding, then join Old Forrester Bourbon Specialist Nate Renwick for tastes from various years and recipes.




Dine on a special bourbon inspired menu, highlighted by Old Forrester glazed beef tips, ribs, and brisket.  Passengers must be 21 years old or older and the menu is amazing!

However, if Bourbon and Beef is not to your liking, how about a Crab Cruise?  On August 24th your feast begins as soon as you board the beautiful Riverboat Queen.



This 2-hour cruise will give you plenty of time to enjoy continuous crabs, corn on the cob and red bliss potatoes.  In addition, each guest will receive two drink tickets for ice-cold beer, wine or soda.  A cash bar will be available for additional beverage purchases.

This is definitely a great way to kick off the end of the summer season as you enjoy a wonderful scenic view, great music, family and friends and seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

$75.00 per person

Food & Crabs provide by Sodexo and Captain’s Catch

If you can’t make it, you can always Give A Gift of the River!

Which is a great way to make your employee’s, parents’, significant other’s, child’s, or neighbor’s day!   Buy them a gift card and give the gift that “washes away” all other gifts.

  1. Good food. Spectacular scenery. Sounds like heaven. For $75.00!
    We have a riverboat here in Edmonton as well. Much of the time it spends tied up to the dock with possible buyers fighting over it. But occasionally, it takes to the water for much the same type of event!
