St. Croix River Daily Boat Tour in Taylors Falls

8/17/2022
Due to low water, we will be running 45-minute trips instead of the 80-minute trips through Thursday, August 18th.   We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will receive rain soon so we can return to our regularly scheduled 80-minute trips. 

A great way to tour the St Croix River. Your tour includes a narrated tour of the history and rock formations along the river!

Since 1906, tourists by the thousands have enjoyed the scenic beauty of the world-famous Dalles of the St. Croix River by excursion boat. Our excursion boats include the Taylors Falls Queen and the Taylors Falls Princess. Both boats are enclosed on the lower level, with an open upper deck.

Your licensed boat pilot and tour guide will point out the unique rock formations left behind as the glaciers retreated thousands of years ago in this beautiful area of Taylors Falls, MN. Among the most outstanding formations is the huge stone cross for which the St. Croix River was named. “St. Croix” means Holy Cross.

Other sites that can be seen from the boats include the world’s largest glacial kettles or “potholes,” Lion’s Head, Turk’s Head, and the highlight of the boat tour, The Old Man of the Dalles – the most outstanding natural rock face you’ll ever see.
