Quick Details

Sightseeing on the Mississippi River

Welcome aboard the authentic La Crosse Queen paddlewheeler on the upper Mississippi River! On our sightseeing tours, while the La Crosse Queen paddles the main channel of the river, your guide will explain facts and trivia of the historical and present day river, as well as point out local points of interest. Watch for eagles and other wildlife as we cruise past steep bluffs adjacent to the Great River Road — designated by AAA as one of the most scenic areas in America! Then as you near Lock & Dam No.7 in Dresbach, Minnesota, we will explain the locking process to you! Cocktails, soda drinks and concessions are available and we can provide a luncheon for groups of 25 and more, just inquire!

Please note that daily riverboat excursions are offered from early May through late October and reservations are only taken for groups of 25 or more.
