Description

Join us this month aboard the Steamboat Minnehaha as historian Scott McGinnis regales passengers with tales of shipwrecks and disasters. Hear the stories of sinking boats, exploding boilers, and many other calamities which have disturbed the serene waters of Lake Minnetonka.

NEW THIS YEAR -

We are excited to partner with the Excelsior Streetcar Line of the Minnesota Streetcar Museum in order to offer our ticketholders an authentic "streetcar to streetcar boat" experience - at no additional cost! Passengers may take a quick tour of the ELMHS Museum (old Excelsior Depot) at 305 Water Street and check-in between 5:15 and 5:45 pm to take the trolley to Excelsior Boulevard, approximately a block away from the "Minnehaha" charter dock. Following the cruise the trolley will be waiting to pick up passengers and bring them back to the ELMHS Museum. (The streetcar is not wheelchair accessible.)

Boarding the "Minnehaha":
Boarding begins at 5:45 pm and the boat departs promptly at 6:00 pm. Board at the "Minnehaha" charter dock behind 687 Excelsior Boulevard, Excelsior (formerly Bayside Grille).

To access the "Minnehaha" charter dock, walk to the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail to the right of the building near the intersection of Excelsior Boulevard and Minnetonka Boulevard and follow the trail along Minnetonka Boulevard past the buildings on the left. Turn left to access the "Minnehaha" charter dock. (Vehicles are not permitted on the LRT Regional Trail.)
