We sat in front and it was really cold and windy going out but nice coming back. What we could hear of the narrative was good, but we couldn't understand the guy who was speaking. It was really mumbled or something. When he would point out a rock formation, we couldn't tell where he was talking about and thus missed... More

St. Croix River and beautiful paddle boat river tour is a perfect match. The narrator had interesting facts/stories. The scenery extraordinary. It just takes all your cares away.

Bought tickets through Groupon, the boat ride was great, wish it was longer. They offer snacks and beverages during the 80 minute ride. They have guide who gives a narrative about different things along the way, he was somewhat hard to understand and extremely monotone. Overall a nice ride and would recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I had a great time on this fun adventure. The staff were courteous and the helpings plentiful and reasonably good for a buffet. The only ding I have is if you missed it, you do not need to get a pass to park, and the signage to the lower dock left us unsure as to how far... More

This was an excellent tour from beginning to end. The staff was very friendly. Everyone was more than willing to answer any questions we had; not only about the boat tour, but the area around Taylors Falls also. The boat was clean and well staffed. the river and cliffs are a thing of beauty. I was amazed at the number... More
