Awesome time

"We had a great time! My family and I enjoyed the great live music while we cruised down the bay and watched a beautiful sunset. Even though we live local we all felt like we were on vacation. Highly recommend - We are already looking forward to the next time! A+++"

Perfect September Cruise

"My family and I did the Steel Drum and Rum tour with Classic Boat Rides. It was the perfect Saturday activity with even more perfect weather. The crew was incredibly friendly and accommodating. I would recommend packing a cruise picnic lunch to personalize the experience."

Great for birthdays!

"10 of us went on the Thursday night cruise as we wanted adults only and liked the live music. We had a blast and would highly recommend the cruise- drinks were reasonable, sights were gorgeous, and we had a blast being on the water together. We made friends on the boat too! Fantastic night!"

"Went on the three hour Sunday afternoon cruise up the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers. First time sailing with CBR – definitely won’t be the last. Captain Dan and his crew were great! Boat was very comfortable and the views were spectacular. Can’t wait to try their sunset cruise."

"Great boat ride. Highly recommend for anyone that loves boats and music. The crew are all wonderful. You get so much for the price, which is very reasonable. I do this every summer and they have so many cruise options. I can't wait to try another cruise. The steel band cruise looks great too!"
