Wonderful Sundown Cruise

Everything was wonderful - the weather was perfect. The crew was helpful, polite and so informative. We truly enjoyed the experience and will be back next spring for another cruise. I highly recommend taking a boat tour with them!

Loved It Daily Excursion

Being on the water was very calming. Nice boat, good staff, wonderful scenery. The crew's commentary on the trip enhanced the experience. We also got the chance to see bald eagles and vultures soaring above the valley!

Outstanding Private Excursion

We had an outstanding experience! A really great venue to host an 80th Birthday party for 30 guests. The staff was very friendly and attentive! We had great weather on a sunset cruise as the fall colors began to change. We loved it!

Beautiful Views Music Cruise

A beautiful ride along the St. Croix on Friday night, with great musical accompaniment by Charlie O. The scenery was fantastic. Easy boarding and very comfortable seating. Would not hesitate to come back and do this again in the future!
