Alternatively, the happy hour and pizza cruise lets passengers view landmarks while dining from a pizza buffet and enjoying drink specials.

Paradise Charter Cruises & Minneapolis Queen
Since 1985, the experienced captains and crew at Paradise Charter Cruises & Minneapolis Queen have been shepherding guests along the azure surfaces of Lake Minnetonka and the Mississippi River. Their fleet of five vessels steers customers around the area while accommodating them with full-height glass windows, enclosed outer decks, bar and restaurant options, and karaoke performances by prize-winning big-mouth bass. Boats glide along the coastline of Lake Minnetonka, catching sights of small lakeside towns, and down the Mississippi River to the backdrop of the Minneapolis skyline, Saint Anthony Falls, and the setting sun.
