Loved the Dixie boat ride. Very relaxing. Captain and crew were very hospitable. I rented the Dixie for an event during R family reunion and my family loved it . It was a nice ride and the narrative was great. I would recommend to anyone.

The Dixie is an institution around North Webster. Saturday night , live music and dancing is so pleasant. Most people don't dance, but we love it. The local information is interesting, and it is a delightful way to watch the sunset over the lake. This...More

We got our food dockside and carried it aboard the dixie. The cruise lasted an hour or so and it was wonderful. They have some drinks, popcorn, and candy onboard for sale but bring your own if you're hungry. Very relaxing and inexpensive to ride.

This steam engine boat was cool. The best views are up stairs to see the paddle and amazing Flag. Plenty of seating. Then if you go downstairs, you sit around the edge with metal chairs in the middle. What I like about this is they...More

Interesting history and scenic tour. It takes over an hour to go all over the lake. If you want to hear the details, be sure to sit near a speaker. There are stairs to the top of the boat, which has the best view, but...More

Very relaxing and informative ride that lasted a little over an hour. Lots of surprising history here! It might be different with a big noisy crowd, but we could hear very clearly. Truly enjoyed it and might go again some day!
