We took the sight seeing tour on $5 Tuesdays! What a deal! Tour was informative and staff was friendly. Snacks and beverages are available for purchase as well.

Somewhat disappointing. The boat stayed in the harbor instead of going out on the actual lake. Also the food was not as advertised. It was advertised to be a 10oz sirloin or wild rice stuffed chicken. Instead we received a 4oz piece of pork loin. The boat ride was enjoyable and did have interesting facts along the way.

We decided to take a 1 hour 15 minute Vista Harbor Cruise on a recent visit to Duluth in order to have an opportunity to see the famous Aerial Lift Bridge functioning from a great vantage point on the water. We were pleasantly surprised when we went to get our $22 tickets and were changed $5! So - Tuesday is... More

We went on the Vista Fleet tour this afternoon and was disappointed with the attitude of the guide, he read from a book word for word and didn't have the enthusiasm we did expect which made it hard to listen too. He then complained that the tour was being done back to front so he had to switch around his... More

Had a wonderful Harbor cruise. Boat was clean and easy to get around. Departed on time and was not over booked. The guides were entertaining and very informative. It was a great experience.

Several tours are offered by the Vista Fleet. Friends and I took the 75 minutes Harbor Tour on a lovely, sunny day in August. The narration covered history, lake science and business facts of the area. The crew added personal info. about the Duluth, Minnesota and Lake Superior. Questions were happily answered. Refreshments were available on the lowest of three... More

Good tour with lots of information, especially about the inner harbor. The jokes by Connor are a little corny but made the tour fun. Especially nice to sit and relax for an hour or so after walking up and down the lake front. Would recommend tour and probably would do again.

I took 3 of my kids on the Vista Star cruise on a Tuesday afternoon because the tickets were $5 each!! They had fun on the boat and enjoyed going under the lift bridge. This tour takes you out into the lake as well as around the harbor. If you are looking for a reasonably priced adventure go here on... More

It was a beautiful day and we got a tour of the lake and the harbor. it was really fun to hear about what boats had just come into the harbor which they knew information about! Totally worth the time!
