Lazy paddle boat trips couldn't be much better. It was a slow and comfortable ride down the river with some good information to boot. Our kids got pretty bored after 20 minutes of the 80 minute tour. After you clear the rock ledge shores, it's basically looking at Minnesota and Wisconsin wooded hills. I would recommend this more to a... More

Yesterday - my husband and I floated down the lazy St. Croix River on the St. Croix Princess at Taylors Falls, MN. A wonderful trip on a double decker paddleboat - was the perfect way to spend a beautiful fall day in Minnesota. An 80 min., fully narrated tour, took us by fishermen, kayakers and breathless scenery. Rock climbers could... More

We did not find the tour location. The web site was incorrect. The address was incorrect. When we called the company that runs the place about the problem we had they would not refund any amount of the money we spent to reserve the boat ride. The company who did the boat ride did not send information nor did they... More

Dear Deborah, I'm sorry that you were unable to find our location. Your husband did call our office afterward and we walked him through our website and he realized that you weren't on our website to find the address. You are correct, we would not offer you a cash refund, but we did offer you a complimentary trip anytime for... More

We took the 80 minute ride down the river and back was a perfect day, more crowded than I would like but with the perfect weather, what did I expect? The grandchildren were able to go topside and watch the paddle wheel propel the craft along the tour guide keep the information coming and kept the kids interested , Will... More

We went on a Saturday night 6:30 dinner cruise. We parked in the lower lots. The cruise boarded and left on time. The food was great. (We both had the prime rib). Nice guided tour on the trip out, followed by entertaining piano music on the trip back. I would definitely recommend the cruise.

Although there isn't a ton to see after you pass the towering cliffs and rock formations, the paddlewheel boat provides a relaxing and interesting river cruise. The commentary about the early settlement of the river provides insights into the history of the area. After the cruise, don't miss the pothole trail in Interstate State Park (Minnesota side). A bit pricey,... More

The boat drifts down the river sort of aimlessly on this leisurely boat trip (they call it a cruise). The top deck has seating under a sun shade, the bottom has indoor seating surrounded by glass windows. Take your choice for the kind of weather you will encounter. The lower deck has a nice view, so you won't be penalized... More

My family and I made reservations for an 80-minute scenic boat tour on a Saturday. We had made the plans and reservations over a month prior. We were all very excited to spend a relaxing Saturday together until I received an email the day before stating "due to low water levels in the St. Croix River, we will be running... More

Dear g_smith, I am sorry for your disappointment. I know it seems hard to believe, but we really don't know on a day to day basis what the water levels on the St Croix are going to be during certain times of year, all dictated by the amount of rain received.. As soon as we knew for sure that we... More

Relaxing, scenic boat ride; interesting information by the ship's captain. Because we were there on a very hot, sunny day, we moved from the upper deck to a shady spot on the lower deck after a while. We were there on a quiet weekday; might be less relaxing on a weekend. The plastic chairs on the upper deck were too... More
