Awesome! Go on these boats all of the time and was married on one of them. Love everything. The only suggestion would be that parking is a little unclear. My companion and also others not in our party said they could not find the parking, so parked in the paid lot. The parking directions should be more clear.

Relaxing atmosphere. We were able to sit by the window to maximize our experience on the water. I was surprised that being on the water there was no "safety" instruction either spoken or posted. Drinks were super expensive. The wait staff was professional and polite. The food - beef tenderloin, while overcooked was very tender and tasty. The walleye - if you didn't know what you were eating, you'd never know it was fish, just tasted like breading. Potatoes and salad were good. I'd do this again but earlier in the year when it would be daylight for the duration of the trip. They would benefit from having staff greet patrons as you embark & disembark.

A wonderful day on a beautiful waterway - there is nothing better. The scenic St. Croix River, a National Protected Scenic Riverway, is wonderful. Seeing this river by paddleboat is fantastic. The cruise is lovely, luncheon sandwich bar and salads are quite good and rain or shine, the river is always worth the experience.

Perfect day, cruise was great, lunch was great, staff was great. We were joined by relatives from Florida & they thoroughly enjoyed everything. This is a must do trip when we have friends & relatives visiting us. Everything was perfect.
