I took my daughter for her first trip on the Hiawatha for the last ride of the season. She loved being on the boat, looking at the water and the shoreline. I will definitely take her again!

We take a ride at least once a year and love the soothing hour long trip. The staff are all friendly and the drinks are delicious. I would highly recommend experiencing the Hiawatha on a beautiful evening. The sunsets are so amazing.

What beautiful, relaxing night! Tickets and drink prices were extremely reasonable! For a sold out evening, there was plenty of room for everyone. We were happy to see that you had plenty of room to wander around the boat without being crushed. You could still...More
