Fun! Fun! Fun!

We really enjoyed the cruise around Lake Minocqua. It was just the right amount of time. Our guide was interesting and very knowledgeable. We saw lots of eagles and loons!

We took the late afternoon cruise with David. He was friendly and informative and it was a very nice time. The eagles were really soaring and many came very close to the boat. Soft drinks and water are available for free. You can bring along wine or beer if you want. It is $35 per person and they picked us... More

Our tour guide was Chad and he was a lot of fun. This is a two hour tour for $35/person - very reasonable - and he had us out just under 3 hours. We saw eagles & loons, learned about the history of the lakes and saw many great homes. The tour is very laid back, they supply water and... More

We went out on a Saturday afternoon cruise around the lake. The driver Chad was very knowledgeable, personable and interesting. A fun way to get to know some history and enjoy the lake.

We went out with a young man driving, not the owner. Although he grew up in the area, he did not seem to know much history. One he found out that one woman grew up in the area, he directed most of his discussions to her. He spoke so softly he could not be heard at the front of the... More

We live locally, but had out-of-town guests and were looking for an enjoyable (easy) way to get out on the water. We considered renting a pontoon (which I'm sure they do well too), but we decided on the pontoon cruise and were not disappointed. We did the 3-5 p.m. cruise with Chad and we were 110% satisfied. Chad was a... More

We have taken sightseeing cruises on various size lakes around the country. This cruise is one of the best. "Captain"Chad does such a great job. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He pointed out several eagles and took us in close to shore to see a few eagle nest. We also were able to see loons... More
