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...

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.

Instead of supporting this business, please do business with an honest company who supports small business, their neighbors and clean water instead of this business whose owner is selling his own State down the river of sulfides. This is a business that is based in tourism, but the owner Tom Tiffany is a Wisconsin Legislator who presented a bill written... More

We are not politically tied to the previous owners in any way. We are a local family trying to bring an exciting adventure to everyone that... More
