The cruise was a delight! The staff were very helpful and accommodating, even moving the boat so my elderly Dad could more readily get on the boat. They assisted him getting on and off and provided a wonderful tour of the Potomac. I learned a lot about local history and we even spotted a bald eagle. The weather was perfect... More

It was a very hot day but a beautiful day for a boat ride. This was my second time riding his boat and I enjoyed myself again. The Captain was very knowledgeable and my children really enjoyed it. We will come again!

My wife and son took the hour long cruise from Leesylvania State Park... and not only was it an enjoyable experience, but the Capt (Mark Perry) was extremely approachable for an extended Q&A session... all the while providing his guests with historic data of the area... in addition to the Osprey and Eagle sightings along the way! We definitely will... More

I bought the livingsocial voucher to take the cruise to Tim's Rivershore. I was able to schedule a mutually beneficial day, which I can understand you need a certain amount of people to make the boat trip break even. We were scheduled to leave on Sunday at 10:15 am. We were at Madigan's by 10:10 am. Not super early, but... More

I recently got a Living Social deal for a boat cruise to use for my birthday party -- I had no idea what to expect, having never been to this area before. Safe to say that Capt. Mark and the boat more than exceeded my expectations. It was just a blast and we had an amazing afternoon. We had a... More

What a great way to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon - a glass of wine and a smooth river cruise! The Captain of the boat was informative with historical information of the river area as well as enjoyable stories and real estate information. We plan to do it again in a few weeks when the trees start to turn -... More

We went on a 90 min. Cruise , it was very informative. Captain Mark is very knowledgeable of the local area and happy to share his knowledge or just let you enjoy the beautiful scenery. Well worth the price of admission.

Capt Mark was wonderful! His pontoon is casual and had plenty of space for our group of 20 to spread out. He hooked up our music and Cally made us delicious bloody marks'. We cruised from Occaquon to Tim's Rivershore. We ate great crabs and had great drinks.. Carat Mark then took us over to an island where we all... More

3 to 3.5 I think. I got the groupon $30 for 2 people to Tim's for lunch. Scheduling - 1st call he said to email to reserve. I never got confirmation. Sometime later called again and he said to re-send email and he'd confirm. Luckily, this time, he mentioned that there was only one option on Saturday (6 pm -11:00)... More

Rivershore Charters offers excellent service to attractions along Virginia's Ocaquan River including a 90 minute cruise to Tim's Rivershore Restaurant and Crab House. The boat waits at Tim's for two hours, plenty of time to enjoy crab dishes at bargain prices. Captain Mark chats away with historic tidbits, but says noting about environmental issues although nmuch of the cruise is... More
