After boarding a yacht, cruisers glide around Lake Minnetonka or float down the Mississippi River for two hours, passing the downtown Minneapolis skyline and the city's riverside parks. As the sun falls below the horizon, patrons tear into a pizza buffet, quaff drinks on special from the boat's full bar, and gaze at the shimmering waters that surround the yacht. Mississippi River cruises depart from Boom Island Park, while Lake Minnetonka cruises depart from the lake's Port of Excelsior. Click here for directions to each. Cruises typically run from 6–8 p.m. on select days, click here for the schedule of upcoming cruises.
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.
