If you an old paddle wheel experience then this is for you. You get a nice quiet ride all around the lake. With locals waving and being Iowans.

90 minutes on the lake with music and great views of the lake and lake houses. Cash only for the trip and drinks onboard. $4 draft-$3 water. Recommend to eat beforehand. Well worth the ferry ride cost.

You should call and make a reservation, but yes, they can accommodate that many. They also offer private charter cruises that might fit you better.
