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.

This 2 hour tour is very relaxing an informative. The seating is both upper deck and lower deck, which is more enclosed from the weather. You will pass by the Mississippi Headwaters.

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 😊
