We had damp cold weather which didn’t enhance the activity. The meal was nice, servings small but adequate. No dessert or beverage provided except a glass of water. The company could greatly improve the activity by providing much more interesting information about the boat, Lake...More

Follow signs to DECC (Duluth Entertainment & Convention Center) Harbor side. Parking was $5 for day there. ATTENDANT directed us to closest parking with a short walk to Vista Fleet. Very convenient.
