Single-Day Trips

Our single-day cruises are essentially abbreviated versions of our multiple-day trips, just without the overnight lodging. Enjoy a whole day of fun and relaxation on the Mississippi River or Illinois River.

Entertainment includes live singing, guitar, banjo, and ragtime piano, storytelling, historical information at various spots, wildlife sightings, and more. Enjoy the slower pace of life on this unique paddleboat!

Day trips depart from different locations based on cruise schedule.
