I bought a Groupon for my Mom's birthday in April. We got to act like tourists the other day! The water looked so choppy where the boat was anchored up but the trip was smooth sailing! We had access to the upper and lower decks which was great because my 4.5 year old couldn't decide which view she liked more!... More

We took our entire family on this river ride. Ages range from 24 to 1 year. All of us enjoyed the boat ride. Very scenic, informational, relaxing. A all around fun family outting would do again.

My wife and I took the 80 minute cruise and enjoyed it. We sat on the top deck and while the plastic chairs were a bit narrow they were comfortable enough during the ride. We bought our tickets on-line for a specific time and that worked well. You can take some time to look through a few shops in Taylors... More

The scenery was gorgeous. Just don't expect to be bowled ocer by the history lesson. Guide was not very informative nor was siund system adequate. Bring your own food and water!

I bought a Groupon for this fun relaxing cruise on a paddleboat on the beautiful St. Croix River, which divides Minnesota & Wisconsin. The ride was a good hour+ to & fro. Plenty of seating although many raced to be on the top bow. You won't miss a thing sitting at the stern, you just won’t see it first. It... More

Near the center of Taylor’s Falls there is a complex intersection. In July of 2016 they threw in some road construction to make it more interesting. The entrance to the boat tour parking lot is in the middle of all this. Read the signs carefully and you’ll get there just fine. Before you go: Google their web site to find... More
