The Oklahoma River is one of OKC’s most exciting destinations! It frequently receives worldwide acclaim as a venue for competitive water sport events, its incredible economic impact and its role in continuing Oklahoma City’s momentum for excellence.
Based on the river, Oklahoma River Cruises is the way to discover some of Oklahoma City’s hidden treasures. River transit provides access to Historic Stockyards City, the bustling Meridian Corridor and the lush Regatta Park/Boathouse District.
Since its creation in 2004, the Oklahoma River has steadily increased the number of attractions and activities including the recent launch of the zip line. Oklahoma River Cruises offers a variety of fun themed cruises.
Oklahoma is known for its beautiful sunsets, and the Oklahoma River is one of the unique places to watch the sun settle into the horizon. Relax and recharge on the deck in the fresh Oklahoma breeze or inside the climate-controlled cabin while on an hour and a half sunset cruise enjoying music, appetizers, soda and a cash bar. The cruises are scheduled every Friday and depart from the Regatta Park Landing at approximately 7:15.
Specialty cruises are scheduled throughout August. For history buffs, Oklahoma characters will reenact history on board the yacht Saturday afternoons. For children, each Saturday morning, the River Cruises offer a Cartoon Cruise. Cruise & Carriage combines a cruise down the river and a carriage ride through Bricktown and happens the last Friday of the month.
Cruises take place on a climate-controlled, 65-foot cruiser. The boats travel through the only locks in the country not controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers. The locks are a smaller scale version of the types of locks in the Panama Canal.
