America’s Most-Storied Waterway
You will see up close the commercial port, barge systems, and learn their importance. You will also view the famous boat house community, and see eagles in their natural habitat celebrating one of our nation’s brightest environmental come-backs. The nesting eagles never leave the Winona area so we see them all year long! There are many active nests within a few miles of our dock at Levee Park, and we see nests every time on the cruise.
This Mississippi River cruise also runs in the fall. We call it the Fall Color Cruise as the trees are beautiful and the eagles are everywhere. We have pairs of binoculars on board for passenger use, but you may wish to bring your own, as well as a camera or video recorder. Keep in mind that wildlife is just that, (wild) so we are unable to guarantee sightings on our cruises. However, we do know the areas and conditions most likely for sightings, and do our best to locate them for you. There is a service bar available with beverages and snacks for purchase.
Eagles of all ages, fish, snakes, turtles, deer, beavers, ducks, are just some of the things we often view on our Winona boat tours!
