Rusty's Red Wing River Rides
Reviewed February 10, 2014

A fun and informative ride on the Mississippi River with an actual riverboat captain. With his knowledge of the Mississippi River he was able to explain the signs and markers that are on the river. The views of the eagles and their nests was great. He is also a very good artist and has some of his painting for sale on the boat, very reasonably priced for the quality of his paintings. There are also snacks and drinks for sale on the boat. We are planning to go back again soon.

My husband and I enjoyed this trip down the Mississippi in August. We loved hearing Rusty's stories as he narrated on this 90 minute trip. We saw many bald eagles and nests. We heard many stories about the eagles, the river, and some of the history. Dave works the people on the boat by coming around and showing photos as Rusty talks. He's great and explaining things if you have questions as well. Rusty's wife takes amazing photos that are on the big screen inside the boat. It's a well run operation and they have terrific service. I would recommend bringing cash to pay for the tickets. They aren't easily set up to take credit cards because they are docked along the side of the river. I would also call and get a reservation ahead of time. There is an indoor seating area or you can sit in the front or back of the boat. Just went again with two of my friends to celebrate a birthday recently. A very relaxing and fun time!

Unreliable reservation system led to a wasted trip to the boat landing. This was complimented by unapologetic and discourteous staff.

Loved the river ride! Very informative. Great low price for a fun river ride. Lots of eagles to watch. Would go back in a minute and do it again.
