Are you looking for a unique, intimate, casual place your gathering? RiverQuest is available for your exclusive Private Charter. She is perfect for:
Charter RiverQuest for an Evening Cruise, Early Breakfast, Brunch or Lunch Cruise.
A casual buffet or Hors d'oeuvres/Cocktail type gathering where your guests can mingle works best onRiverQuest. We suggest a maximum of 50 guests for everyone's comfort. If you want an intimate sit-down dinner, we suggest a maximum of 30 guests. Please contact us anytime to help plan with your party plans and to discuss specifics.
On RiverQuest, you supply your own cuisine. Depending on the event, bring Hors d'oeuvres, potluck, light buffet, sandwiches; choose your own caterer or we can supply you with a list of caterers that are familiar with RiverQuest (see "Caterers" button above).
OR just have some light apps and dine after your cruise at one of the local area restaurants: Examples: La Vita Gustosa or The Gelston House. We can also offer more suggestions for places in Chester and Essex (Example: The Griswold Inn).
Music: We have good speakers on board, so, bring your Ipod or MP3 player to listen to on your cruise (PLEASE, NO RAP). At this point we do NOT have a CD player.
PA System: We have a walking microphone that you can use for your party or company presentation.
Display Monitor: We have a 42" TV display monitor on the front wall of the cabin that can be used for Powerpoint presentations or to display pictures during your cruise.
