Very enjoyable ride on the St Croix River.

It's not super, fantastic and such, But it's comfortable, easy going and a really nice way to spend some time in the River Valley. The boats are, overall, clean and well tended... read more

Rode the 1:30 p.m. excursion today with only 16 other passengers. When we started it was sprinkling rain so my mother & I opted to ride the top deck. It was partially covered and we rode there until we reached the turnaround spot down river. It started pouring rain so we elected to ride on the first deck, and enjoy... More

This was a top notch afternoon cruise (they have several daily excursions that run from 30 to 80 minutes in time). We chose to do an 80 minute excursion on a Saturday afternoon. Parking was convenient, and it was just a short walk to the boat landing to board. We secured our reservation online the day before, but if there... More

It's not super, fantastic and such, But it's comfortable, easy going and a really nice way to spend some time in the River Valley. The boats are, overall, clean and well tended. From the river, one can see the cliffs and walls of rock that border the Valley. At the head of the trip, the falls and rapids are just... More

A great experience to enjoy the scenic beauty of the St. Croix River, and learn a little history in the process. Although we were a little disappointed the trip was shortened because of low water levels, it was overall a good experience and a chance to see the river from a unique vantage point.

Enjoyed the boat tour yesterday. At first, it seemed like the guy was going to talk the entire trip, but he slowed it down a bit and only hit the highlights. The Trip is a very relaxing tour down the St. Croix River on an actual paddleboat. I thought the paddles were there just for show, but the announcer did... More

We did this in October 2014. A lovely boat ride down the river. Some nice scenery on either side of the river. Afterwards we climbed opposite where the boat departs from which has some great views. There were some good rock formations in the shape of a Lions head. We did the 80 minute trip. I would have liked to... More

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

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