We were looking forward to a peaceful day on the water but ended with a down pour! We did see wildlife as deer and bald eagles and learned about the lake history like the wild rice and the beautiful bog.

We celebrated our 41st anniversary with a boat tour of Lake Itasca. This two-hour tour was well executed by the crew. The narrated portion covered lots of local history and nature background. The boat was clean and obviously well maintained. I highly recommend this attraction.

Around $16 per adult. I don't remember any children's discount. In any event the cost to value ratio is very low. Nice and clean boat with friendly operators, rest rooms, and snack bar. The 90 minute ride goes fast 😊
