After boarding a yacht, cruisers glide around Lake Minnetonka or float down the Mississippi River, passing the downtown Minneapolis skyline and the city's riverside parks. Alternatively, the happy hour and pizza cruise lets passengers view landmarks while dining from a pizza buffet and enjoying drink specials.

Mississippi River cruises depart from Bohemian Flats Park, while Lake Minnetonka cruises depart from the lake's Port of Excelsior. Click here for directions to each departure location. To view dates and times, see the schedule.

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.

Customer Reviews

This was the 2nd year we did a Mississippi River cruise...just love doing it! The boat and crew are great. Food is okay, but not expecting (or paying for!) a 4-course meal.

The boat appeared to have been kept up and clean. The staff was vey polite and welcoming. My fiance and I enjoyed the beer samples as well as the taco bar. It was a beautiful date night for us.
