About Winona Tour Boat
View Wildlife, the City of Winona, the magnificent bluffs of south east Minnesota and the mighty Mississippi River from aboard our fully enclosed tour boat. Check availability on our website as cruise length, time and prices vary in relation to cruise highlights. We offer private charters as well as regularly sceduled tours and can configure the boat to accomodate up to 64 people. Most tours are narrated by the knowledgable captain and crew and offer a unique view of the Mississippi River that only decades of navigation can bring. Other "themed tours" offer a relaxing and peaceful venue to reconnect with family and friends. We offer wine/beer tasting tours, pizza cruises, fall color cruises, and many holiday and specialty events so please check our website or call to see what's available.

Was very fun. Captain was knowledgeable and a great entertainer. We saw many eagles. There was cold refreshments and snacks for sale. Clean restroom on boat.

Had such a wonderful trip. I would highly recommend a trip on the Tour Boat. Captain Aaron and his staff were amazing.

Our family absolutely loved this tour. The scenery was gorgeous and Captain Aaron was so friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. We learned a lot and we relaxed. A perfect combination!

What a great tour of the Upper Mississippi and Winona-area backwaters! Fun, informative, and friendly! There were people of all ages who had a great time. I would certainly book again and the price was great! We saw so many eagles and Aaron drove RIGHT up to them and they stayed for awhile. We even got to watch a couple eagles eating fairly close to the boat. There were snacks and a bathroom onboard that we didn't use but was good to know.

Our three grandsons loved the tour, especially when Aaron let them take turns steering the boat! We live in Winona and have taken the tour before, but we always learn so much.
