2019 Riverboat Season Com’n

Ahoy!  The Riverboat Season is just around the bend.  The children will be on the levee shoutin’ “Riverboat Com’n” just as they did in Mark Twain’s day.


Our season is scheduled to start in late March.  The riverfront construction is ongoing and making progress daily.  The riverstage today is 14.34 feet and falling for now.  A spring rise is a given with all the snow on the ground in northern Iowa and Minnesota.


Now is a great time to schedule your cruise.  You may purchase online, or make your dinner cruise reservation by phone (573.221.3222).  And we are now taking reservations for the fireworks cruise on July 4th.

Stay warm, spring is just around the corner.  I’ll keep you updated often.

Dinner Cruise

Enjoy a night of dinner and dancing on this cruise on the Mighty Mississippi. Indulge in a delicious buffet and share a wonderful dinner with your family or friends, then enjoy live music from the dance floor or the deck.

Once on board, you are escorted to your table, then you are free to roam the boat until the captain announces that dinner is ready. After dinner, you are free to dance or sit back and enjoy the music. Live entertainment is included on our Dinner Cruises. It may be The Rivermen playing modern jazz (Saturday night from Memorial Day thru September), or you might get to enjoy the music of Tim Hart (Mondays & Tuesdays), or Adam Ledbetter and David Damm (Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). Listen or dance to their favorite tunes — and they have been known to take a request or two. And you never know when a crew member or two may step up on the stage and join in.
