This is a newer double deck boat that can accommodate about a hundred people. We took a Sunday Brunch cruise with approximately 30 people and it was very relaxing. The brunch had a nice homemade egg bake and cinnamon rolls that we loved. The captain and staff are outstanding! Kids loved taking a turn at the helm/steering.

We booked a cruise on a Tuesday afternoon! The day of the cruise, (we were already heading over to it!) we got a phone call from them cancelling the cruise because they did not have enough people coming! Thank you very much for ruining our day!

Saturday afternoon cruise from 3:00 until 5:00 was lots of fun! Great music, the captain was informative about certain sights, wish he would have said more to learn more about Gull Lake. Lots of boats and watercraft on the lake entertaining us. Snacks were perfect. Nice bar, with reasonable prices. Definetly recommend.

We really enjoyed our afternoon on Gull Lake. The general manager, Michele was upbeat and friendly. The crowd was a mix of couples, singles and families. The food was awesome and we loved the music. You can plan ahead when booking because they do fun events onboard. I would love to plan my daughters wedding there!

Our son gifted us with tickets for the Sunday Brunch Cruise on Gull Lake. We had a beautiful day for the cruise with Captain Jay, possible new captain Jim along with Veronica and Braden as the crew. The meal was delicious and furnished by JR's No. 19 out of Pine River, it was exceptional. Enjoyed all the great information and... More

Confusion in the office as to time of departure. Web site says one thing, office agrees to a different departure for our group. Cruise departs an hour before the time quoted. Not good. Some people from our group are left at the dock, picked up after boat was at sea for an hour, then continued for two more hours. Friendly... More

Me & three of my co-workers went on the lunch cruise this past Saturday. I had booked and paid for the tickets back in April. But when we got to the dock to board the boat, they did not have us on the list of people. But they let us board and looked into it further and found our info... More
