· Reviewed May 10, 2018
We weren’t on a paddle boat but a barge that was being pushed by a tugboat so that was a little disappointing. Then there were kids running and screaming with the parent just ignoring them. One of the boat employees children were included in these kids. We weren’t the only passengers that were annoyed with the behavior and believe that the boat staff should have done something.

About Padelford Riverboats

In 1969, the founder of Padelford Riverboats, Captain William D. Bowell, Sr., launched the Jonathan Padelford steamwheeler into the Mississippi, hoping to bring visitors to the riverfront for leisurely jaunts. After more than 30 years of expanding his fleet and ferrying passengers along the historic waterways, he handed the reigs over to his daughters and nephew. Today, the family operates five boats equipped with dance areas, bars, sun decks, and the nostalgia that William hoped to keep alive. With the Twin Cities' skyline and the rugged, green banks of the river as the backdrop, US Coast Guard–licensed vessels float passengers past sights such as Pig's Eye Cave, Fort Snelling, and Pike Island. Some cruises also include dinner or fireworks, and special holiday cruises are also available.
