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

We took the picnic cruise on a comfortable Wednesday evening. Very relaxing, the food was very good. The servers were polite, friendly and as we tried to take a picture after getting off the boat an employee immediately offered to take a picture of my husband and I next to the boat...much appreciated!

We took the 11am trip today, was told they would start boarding at 10:40. Well, they did, but only the people from a bus tour were allowed on..we were told they had paid extra for a presentation. About 5 minutes later, it started to rain, so I guess we were supposed to stand there getting wet, instead of letting us... More

We took a tour last week and had a very relaxing time. The boat is quiet and lets you enjoy the scenery. It's also a true paddle boat, which was a neat experience. The operators are knowledgeable and answer just about any question you might have about the river. I'll be back.

We rode the 1:00 pm, 80 minute ride and enjoyed a relaxing, shaded seat on the top deck of the boat. The narrating was informative with humor sprinkled in, and the captain navigated the VERY busy (canoes and kayaks) river with ease. Great fun!

We took the kids (4, ages 6-12) on the Mexican Fiesta cruise. Everyone had a great time. It was a beautiful evening to be on the river. The tour was interesting and engaging. The food was okay. We were surprised though at how quickly it was put away. Several tables were interested in a second trip to the taco bar... More

Great narrative cruise. 80 minutes down the scenic St. Croix River. The boat captain made the tour very interesting mixing a little history with a little fun. Nice relaxing cruise. You can either sit on top in the open (there is a cover) or down below in an enclosed area. You are free to move about as the boat goes.... More
