We did the afternoon cruise. The beer (Busch light) is not fancy, but plentiful. The wings were edible. Wish we could have just gone in one direction and maybe go thru a lock... read more

My wife and I were in Dubeque area for the weekend and decided to go on the Sunset Cruise. It was such a fun, relaxing beautiful cruise. The captain of the ship was a very knowledgeable and fun guy. He invited my wife and I into the Bridge for the last 20 mins of the cruise and explained about the... More

Girls getaway in Dubuque! Took the Happy Hour cruise on a Wednesday evening and had a great time! The staff was courteous and well organized. Beer poured freely during the one and a half hour cruise, along with wings for a snack.The Mississippi River was majestic as always and the time flew by. Would go again in a heart beat!

We did the afternoon cruise. The beer (Busch light) is not fancy, but plentiful. The wings were edible. Wish we could have just gone in one direction and maybe go thru a lock, but I'm sure that would take too much time for the 1.5 hour tour. Definitely worth the $17 ticket price.

We were looking for a unique anniversary date. Beautiful boat! Very friendly & helpful staff! Wonderful food! And all for $20 per person less than the other boat we checked into. Would highly recommend it & plan to go again.

We were in town for fun, tried to call for reservations but got an answering machine. We left a message like it said, no return call. Boo! I was actually looking forward to a river cruise but maybe next time.

When my sister went to get some chicken wings for us there were only 5 left. She asked them if they were... More

We had a nice time. The captain allowed the kids to be in charge of steering the yacht which made them happy. He joked around with the kids. He even gave a certificate of co-captain to them. That made a memorable experience for them. The captain pointed out where the eagles nests were. It was a nice cruise. The food... More

Five of us went on the Lunch cruise 8/13. Two of the five were ten month old twins. All of us had a great time. I was worried that the twins would get cranky, but they seems to enjoy the ride and the views ( and the mashed potatoes) as much as the adults. The lunch was delicious and plentiful.... More

Great staff, nice boat, and descent food. We enjoyed the 2 hour lunch cruise with fried chicken and pot roast. The staff was extremely friendly and kept out drinks filled and plates bussed.

The ship was homey and beautiful, our meal was delicious, the staff were professional, knowledgeable and attentive and finally the two hours spent with family on the Mississippi was priceless! Would definitely recommend!
