Fall Color Tours  Through  Mid Oct.(Weather permitting)

We look forward to seeing you here!

Weather is unpredictable on the big lake, please call before you drive. (218) 464-6162  The lake is the boss and cancelations are sometimes necessary.  Our daily cancelation notice is posted by 10:00am weekdays and 8:00am weekends but dockside cancelations, although rare, can be a reality so always plan alternate activities.  We never recommend driving up just for our cruise unless you have alternate plans.   

Tickets go on sale 1/2hr. before we cruise at the our ticket window in the main marina building at the Silver Bay marina and all seats are first come first serve.  All sales cash or check only
