Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours takes its passengers more than a century into the past each time it ventures out onto the St. Croix River: its two vessels are authentic, early 20th-century paddle-wheel boats. The boats, in turn, travel several millennia into the past by exploring the St. Croix Dalles—a stretch of majestic and ancient rock formations. Enclosed lower decks with tall windows and spacious upper viewing decks provide panoramic views of the near-mythical natural landmarks, such as the stone cross that gives the river its name and several massive glacial kettles. The boat’s pilot doubles as the tour guide and narrates the whole experience, injecting bits of historical context, geological fact, and dramatic recitations of his personal address book.
More specialized excursions are also available—groups can rent a boat as a private charter for special occasions ranging from weddings to corporate outings. Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours also fuels passengers with dining cruises that include buffets or formal meals and live entertainment, set against a rugged backdrop of the river and its abundant wildlife.
