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
