My daughter and I took my grandsons on a sightseeing cruise. The boys really enjoyed it (ages 14. 10 & 9)- especially the block of cheese that was served at my middle grandsons request! The scenery is beautiful. We loved seeing the eagles and other birds. More wildlife would have been great but the captain of the boat can't control... More

We had a beautiful Sunday afternoon cruise on the Wisconsin River in Rhinelander Wisconsin. We saw so many eagles. Unfortunately, the loons had left for the season. No deer were spotted during our afternoon cruise. The narration was very educational. It would have been enlightening for anyone. All ages would enjoy the scenery. The captain and the wheelhouse were accessible... More

Five of us attended the evening dinner cruise with music by David Dall. The weather was perfect, which helps, but it was an excellent experience for a very reasonable price and had just the right small town, 'Up-North' feel. It is a family run operation which added to the appeal for my party. The captain was a perfect gentlemen and... More

you expect a little patter from the captain, but his really bad jokes and one especially vulgar joke were not appreciated. sometimes it is just nice to enjoy the view and while you may expect that he does this all the time and knows that he is supposed to provide a running commentary, we could have used more time to...

Our car club went on this cruise last week. What a pleasant surprise! The weather was perfect, the water smooth, and the crew very attentive. The boat, which is 80' long, powered by two 75 hp outboards, is comfortable, quiet, and well suited to a river cruise. The bar prices are good, the beer is cold, and the servers attentive.... More

Great way to get family and friends together. Enjoyed fresh air on the upper deck, great sights, dinner and music. I thought the dinner cruise on the WI River was a good value.

We have been going to the Northwoods for decades and always do the same thing. I wanted to do one thing different. So I searched for things to do in northern wisconsin and I found this place. I am glad I did. We had a party of 9 and decided to do the magic cruise (It was my 6 year... More
