Love taking a 1 hour to myself and just enjoy the water and wind as we cruise Up and Down the river😔. Peaceful and the price is not bad Cash or Card $21, just make sure you're there 30mins early for it's a First come basis. Also there are other Venues there if just want a Hot Snack or Cold Drink with an without Alcohol,even things for your Sweet tooth 😃, And there's even a Carousel 🎠 for the little ones and you too😉.Usually open late Spring to October (depending on the weather) Family, Friends,Romance or just ME Time ENJOY😃😌💯💜read more

We had our company end of summer party on the Diamond Belle. We had 65 people aboard. The crew was fantastic and know about customer service and value. The food was great, the bar tenders were on point and the captain of the boat was fantastic. The Owner of our company said that this was the best employee event that he had ever been on. Thank you Diamond Jack!read more

Nice boat ride on the river and a good way to cool off on a hot day. Couldn't hear/understand any of the the audio- sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher talking, so missed all of the info. Easy parking right on more
