Relaxing Ride on the St Croix River.

Narration was good once the speaker was fixed. The River was beautiful. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Taylors Falls and its Wisconsin sister city, St. Croix Falls, are two charming towns sharing the same river. The 80-minute river cruise was absolutely beautiful, calming, delightful, and educational. It was an exceptionally beautiful day, which added to our delight, but it was truly wonderful to be at river level and see all the sandstone formations from that vantage point.... More

My family went on the tour. It was a very hot day and the top of the boat didn't have any shade. Also, the boat seemed like it was over booked. The tour runs approx. 80 minutes. The narration on the boat was good. I'm always hoping for more useful information. There was a good chuck of time that did... More

We took this boat ride at 1:30pm on the 4th of July. There are enclosed seats on the lower level of the boat, covered seats on the top level of the boat and two rows of chairs in the sunshine on the top level in front of the cabin, which we were lucky enough to get. The river is very... More

We live locally (1 hour drive), choose a picture perfect afternoon. For a lower sun angle, recommend a 5:30 PM departure. Of course, timing is dependent on your schedule, or opportunity. Eagle flying overhead, was perched in view previously, added to the views. The Dalles are dramatic. The paddle wheeler is authentic, split wheel, 15 hp diesel, 17" draft, two... More

We took our dog on a boat ride for his birthday last year. It was great fun. Well behaved dogs are allowed to ride along. They give a great narrative while floating along. There is also options to go on a brunch tour. Great fun!
