Lake cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with today's Groupon from Wayzata Bay Charters in Excelsior. Choose between the following options:

  • For $14, you get a child (ages 5–12) public-cruise ticket (a $28.45 value, including port and tax fees).
  • For $16, you get an adult (ages 12+) public-cruise ticket (a $33.45 value, including port and tax fees).

Wayzata Bay Charters’ 60-foot lake cruiser leisurely glides down Lake Minnetonka at pulse-slowing speeds on 90-minute public cruises running Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. The luxury two-level liner launches onto rippling waters, passing lakeside homes, lush foliage, natural wildlife, and flotation devices discarded by reckless sturgeons. On board, test out newfound sea legs brought on by deck strolling and beverage-sipping from a full cash bar as well as a complimentary snack and dessert. Meanwhile, two flat-screen televisions display satellite-beamed images to divert natural-world-weary eyes. Cruises run from 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and from 1 p.m.–2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.–4:30 p.m. Sundays, departing from Bayview Events Center in Excelsior.

Wayzata Bay Charters

With a passion for boating the waters of Lake Minnetoka to take in views of the region's natural beauty and lush green landscapes, Wayzata Bay Charters' owners charter their 60-foot lake cruiser to make the experience accessible to all. The owners decked out their two-level cruiser—which can host up to 60 people—with a full bar, two satellite TVs, satellite radio, a 2,000-watt sound system, and enough helium balloons to keep both the boat and the party afloat. Believing a jaunt on the lake makes for an ideal event whatever the occasion, they've designed packages specifically for weddings and bachelorette parties, and they still offer public cruises to assure everyone has a chance to take to the water.

Beautiful weather enhanced the experience! Had weather chilled... Interior of ship would have been jammed up too tight for comfort.

Staff was great. Day was wonderful. My husband would have liked a little more historical information.

We booked a spur of the moment 1 hour champagne cruise. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The boat departed and arrived right on time. The tour was very scenic and relaxing with the crew explaining points of interest! We highly recommend this tour!!
