Dylan stole the show. He was fantastic! He knew all the local, fabulous facts, memorized his script, sang to us, and shined with his witty sense of humor. He was a terrific asset and really made the cruise fun and worth it! We have done this before, six years ago but not nearly as much fun as this time around.... More

The tour guide lauren was very funny and intertaining we learned a lot I would recommend sitting on the upper deck if the weather is nice, there is amazing views! And the bathrooms are much bigger than i jad expected forna boat! It was however very expensive. 6$ for just a hot dog. But the tour was very fun.

We had out-of-town guests so decided the Tour boat trip to see the harbor would be great which it was. Beautiful weather, top deck views, informative guide - all great. Our guide, Lauren, had her talk down pat, but her delivery made it totally irritating. She used some trite sayings so frequently that we actually were laughing about it. And... More

We booked our cruise online and we payed a beverage tax of 16.19 and a convenience fee of 12 dollars by reserving online. We didn't think much of it cause the ad said "beverage included". Well the beverage was water and it was free!!!!! Soda costs 2dollars and has free refills..... And any alcoholic drinks are 6.17 each....and were taxed.......the... More

Our tour guide Joe was very informative and incredibly funny. He would include jokes in his explanation of lake Superior and its features. At one point a guest lifted his son up and knocked a part of the ceiling tile loose, when Joe saw it he said "and that is why we can't have nice things". The pizza was good... More

The larger Vista Star with her three decks was a great choice for our family, we had the run of the lower two decks as the top deck is closed when full. There is a bar with food on the first deck. This boat is easily wheelchair accessable. The crew is friendly and quite a happy and accommodating bunch. This... More

The hour and three-quarter harbor tour with the Vista Fleet is a must do when you visit Duluth, MN. Included in the tour is a trip under the lift bridge and through the shipping canal as well as a voyage through the inner harbor where ships are unloaded and loaded. Our tour guide, Jocelyn, entertained and informed the riders with... More

This was an inexpensive and interesting way to see Canal Park and the harbor without having to exert yourself too much (when my mom and I went she was having issues with her knee and it was difficult to walk long distances) so this was a way to see the sights without having to move too much. The guide (Dylan)... More

I've taken a cruise aboard one of the Vista Fleet vessels every year for many years now. My most recent visit came while we were hosting my in-laws visiting us from Georgia. We took the 1 hour and 45 minute "Grand Sightseeing Cruise" aboard the larger of the two vessels in the fleet, the Vista Star, that departed at 10:25... More
