My wife and I did the 90 minute cruise around the harbor, the narrator did a good job of letting us know what the sights were. We actually went to some of them later in our trip... read more

We went on the grand sightseeing tour.. make sure you make a reservation though and get there early so you can sit on the top deck, only 40 people are allowed on the top. The tourist was very knowledgeable and was a lot of fun, her cute jokes brought the humor into the tour but most of all we were... More

I loved this short cruise to learn about the history of Duluth and see some views that you just can't get on land. The staff were great. I recommend sitting outside to get the best view but bring a sweatshirt because those lake effect winds do get cold even in July in the sun!

My wife and I did the 90 minute cruise around the harbor, the narrator did a good job of letting us know what the sights were. We actually went to some of them later in our trip based on the cruise. Line up early if you want to get up on top, it fills up quickly. Good overall experience and... More

I was so disappointed in this experience. I should have heeded the warning of some of the other reviewers but, no, I'm an optimist. Arrived on the ship and all started well. We booked the dinner cruise for myself, my husband, my 12 year old and 7 year old. My 7 year old ordered the captain's meal (hot dog, chips,... More

Our "narrated" tour looked like it was ran by early college students that did not tell us anything while we were on the boat. No one announced anything about the harbor or the boat until the last 15 mins of the ride. We also did the dinner cruise and the food was luke warm and we were fed last, so... More

Very nice leisure cruise. Sinatra music gets old after 2 hours of it. Kind of wished there would have been a little more narration. We took the dinner cruise which was a pretty good value - boat ride and meal was approx. $50 per person. All in all a very nice experience. The staff was nice and friendly.

We took the shorter cruise that goes through the lift bridge and out on the lake along the shore. The tour guide points out some of the interesting historical landmarks. The harbor tour is interesting as well. We were lucky on our trip, two ships came into the harbor while we were on our tour. We have taken the longer... More
