Perhaps the most unique thing about Oklahoma River Cruises is that its vessels operate on what used to be an empty riverbed that often had to be mowed!
The Oklahoma River, named in 2004, is a 7-mile section of the North Canadian River that flows through the middle of Oklahoma City. In 2004, three low water computer-controlled dams and two remotely operated locks were installed to maintain adequate water levels for vessels to travel the 7-mile stretch. This has transformed the previously empty river basin into a series of rivers bordered by beautiful, landscaped areas, trails and recreational facilities.
Each 65-foot yacht at Oklahoma River Cruises has a climate-controlled cabin, is equipped with A/V capabilities and has comfortable seating, onboard restrooms and a full bar.
Oklahoma River Cruises offer three styles of service to potential customers. Services include scheduled ferry rides, specialty cruises and private charter services. Upcoming specialty cruises include the Father's Day Cruise on June 19, Cocktail Cruises every Friday and Saturday throughout the summer and Haunt the River Cruise on October 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29. Private charters can carry 28 to 35 guests and each experience is tailored to accommodate the event. The minimum event time is 90 minutes and the pricing begins at $525.
