Loved every minute- it's always a great day when you're on the Mississippi but even better on this tour where we laughed and learned so much.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Boat tour, Captain Aaron was the best. His knowledge of the Mississippi going through Winona was unbelievable and his son also helped with the tour information. We got to see, at least, 6 bald eagles and the boathouse community was so interesting. Great experence, highly recommend this tour.

The best part was seeing a Bald Eagle very close and other wild life. The boathouse community is interesting. Learning about the river, the industries along the river and history of the town. The Captain is entertaining. I usually take guests on this tour when they come to town.

Learned a lot about Winona, MN, the Mississippi River, barges, turtles, eagles (we did see some but hard to photograph), house boats, boat houses and Gilligan's Island (😆 joking, although there was plenty of that on the tour thanks to our Skipper/Captain). We had an awesome time! Visit Winona and do yourself a favor. Go on a Winona boat tour. You'll love it. 🙂

We were in MN for a friend's wedding and were looking for something to do on the water. We took a nice drive along the Mississippi River and discovered this boat tour in Winona. What a wonderful day we had capped off with the boat tour with Captain Aaron. He was a hoot, and not only that he really knows the river, the history, the commerce, and wildlife. Relaxing trip, educational trip, entertaining trip! I highly recommend it.
