Used Wayzata Bay Charters for a small wedding reception for our children and significant others. Had a great experience Captain Aaron and Steward Joshua were extremely service oriented - First Class Service - took pictures from their "upper" deck advantage - and emailed them to us (Had no idea they were even doing it). Mark - one of the owners - was very flexible and helpful - as was Kevin who helped make all the arrangements - great memories made with the help of WBC!!!!

The food was okay. The cruise was nice. My rating was greatly reduced because of the overwhelming engine exhaust fumes in the cabin. It was a cool-ish late morning so we stayed inside for most of the cruise. I started to get sick from the fumes and was concerned about carbon monoxide. We went outside to the front of the boat for the last 15 minutes or so. This was the only place to escape the fumes.

We did the Bachelorette Package #2 and rented the Elixir for 5 hours with unlimited margaritas & champagne. The margaritas were hand made every time & were amazing! Captain Wiggins, Josh & Aaron were SO SO SO FUN to have on board & helped us with anything we requested or needed. They truly made our experience a 10/10. I would rent this again in a heartbeat for another party because it was just so fun & perfect. Kim, who signs you in & helps with questions at the dock ROCKED, she was so fun & nice and was just as excited for our party as we were. Cannot rave about this enough. Truly had the best time & the best experience. Only recommendation would be to take better pictures for the website because they in no way did the boat justice. There was so much room & places to hang out in, very updated & clean. It was amazing, but the pictures online suck.

We loved it! It was everything we hoped it to be, great dinner, friendly staff very accommodating and the cruise tour of the lake showed some stunning, beautiful mansions, we really enjoyed just relaxing and watching the magnificent sunset. The firework show was the frosting on the cake at end of evening. We would recommend this tour in a heartbeat. Remember though to book early in the year. As I'm sure this fills up fast, they had 3 full boats out that night. M&L Hubbart

Bought tickets for the Taco and Margarita cruise. Had to reschedule due to an emergency that caused me to return home early. I sent a simple email and they rescheduled me without a problem. The day that I was scheduled to take the cruise, a nasty storm came through. I called to see if the cruise was still on; I was told that it was, and that they storm had already passed through that area. Great! So I call an Uber, get on the road, and get stuck in traffic because the storm had not yet finished rolling through the downtown area. I call them back and they assure me that the boat will not leave without me. Whew! I finally arrive and as I'm scurrying to the dock, I was told that barely five minutes prior, the captain got the word that the seas were too rough and that we were not able to leave port. Dangit! Nevertheless, the taco and margarita part of the cruise experience still went on as scheduled. The margaritas were great, and the price was even better: only 3 bucks a pop... and they take credit cards! There was a small taco bar set up in the front of the boat with hard and soft taco shells, tortilla chips, rice, ground beef, lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, sour cream and shredded cheese. The rice had no flavor (but the chips were very salty, so it balanced out!) and the beef was not very well seasoned, but it was still pretty decent. As we were eating, someone from the company was going around to reschedule us for another cruise experience to make up for this one. Unfortunately, since my flight home was the next afternoon, I was not able to take advantage of the opportunity. When she finally got to me, she immediately recognized me from my earlier phone calls and commended me for making down here, despite the weather. I informed her that, regrettably, I was not able to reschedule since I'm from out of town, so in additional to my refund, she asked the bartender to provide me with a complimentary cocktail as well, which was incredibly kind of her. I appreciate that the tour company still allowed this event to go on (granted, at a bit of a loss to them), and that they showed their appreciation to all of us who came out despite the weather.
