What a relaxing ride. I'll never forget the ride we took across the lake while participating in the Fireball Run season 11 reality show. They have a great bar on the boat, the captain even let me drive the boat for a bit!

A special event at sunrise.....a lovely morning, balmy weather. Interesting narration by the captain of the topography and history. Such a wonderful opportunity for visitors and residents to enjoy Lake Pepin.

The cruise was fun and relaxing. Just about the right length (90 minutes). The captain with the announcements was very loud and sort of annoying but did have good information. Otherwise we had a nice time.

I took a group of 13 senior adults on this trip. Some chose to stay downstairs out of the wind and sun; others stayed on the top deck. The.Captain was very informative. All in all a good way to spend the afternoon.

Nice little boat ride. Friendly staff. The food was OK. But-- the portions of food were very small if you are a big eater. My roast beef was very good but for me I didn't get any where near full. The waitress on our cruise...More
