This tour is billed as a harbor tour and that it is. We took this tour last week with a group of children and teens. The tour is about and hour and 45 minutes, but that felt way too long. The ship takes you under the lift bridge, which is very cool, and out through the canal into open water... More

We took the longer "grand cruise". The tour guide shared lots of great information. A great way to see the town and lake superior. The sales person said there was "full concessions" on the boat but they actually had a bar and very limited food. My hungry kid had to settle for a pretzel.

If you need a break from other activities, are tired, or have a hole in your schedule, this is a great way to tour the lake and harbor and learn something in the process. If you take a a Vista cruise, do the 1:45 cruise. Anything less is pointless. Service onboard is excellent. Choose two inside decks or outside top... More

We do their tour every time we go to Duluth. The jokes are corny, but the guides are great and really know what they are talking about. It is always one of the top 2 things we love to do in town. No matter the weather, it is always a good time.

The cruise is the best way to see the harbor and get a feel for the historical and economic significance of the City of Duluth as well as the Lake Superior shipping industry. The cruise tour guide was full of information and entertaining as well. We enjoyed it very much.

Price for the longer 1 hour 45 minute cruise was decent at $20 per person. The accommodations were clean. They take you the full length of the harbor (interior from the bridge to the Wisconsin entrance from the lake). There were nice little facts given about the area and businesses along the harbor, although we were grateful for the quite... More

My wife and I went on the Pizza Dinner Cruise via Groupon and had a nice time on the cruise. I'm rating this three stars since we had no idea we would literally be sailing, and that's it. There was no narration or anything that told us what we were seeing along the cruise. It was very misleading to us... More

We went on the 1 1/2 hour tour and had a good time. The man narrating was informative and funny, with a few admittedly corny jokes and puns thrown in. We had a nice, relaxing ride and learned more about Lake Superior and Duluth. They have drinks and a small snack bar on board.

My 3 teenagers and I went on the pizza tour. (We did this one because the others were sold out.) The wait staff (I don't remember her name...Molly, mayber??) was very pleasant. Dylan was our tour guide. When he spoke, he was very entertaining, and seemed to know what he was talking about, I just would have liked to have... More

My husband and I recently went on the grand sightseeing tour with Vista Fleet. We were both amazed on how grand it actually was! You get to learn a lot about Duluth and you get some awesome sights too. You'll pass under the Canal lift bridge twice which was really awesome. We learned about history as we went along the... More
