CRUISING ON THE RIVER

Themed boat rides blend fun, relaxation and breathtaking views. Board a Padelford riverboat for a 90-minute narrated sightseeing excursion past Pike Island, Fort Snelling and Pig's Eye Cave. The fleet of boats also offers meal cruises that allow guests to have lunch or dinner as they take in the sights. If you want to kick it up a notch, try a specialty cruise such as Margaritas on the Mississippi, which comes with a complimentary taco bar.
