The cruise was relaxing and informative. It was a nice way to cruise along the river, learn a bit of Wisconsin history, and get some fresh air. I was there with friends for a bachelorette party, and all the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This small river boat is a charming way to view the St. Norberts campus and homes along the Fox river, south of the De Pere bridge. The tour guides pointed out various landmarks and gave interesting history of the area. They answered questions from guests.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Had a relaxing 90 minute voyage from the upper deck of the well cared for vessel. The tickets we got for "Margarita Monday" included, you guessed it, a margarita.
