Celebrate Father’s Day with a Cruise around Lake Minnetonka

The view of Lake Minnetonka is so well-known to locals that we could almost paint it perfectly with our eyes closed. Get a new perspective on this familiar view with a Lady of the Lake cruise on June 18, Father’s Day.

With cruises at 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., Lady of the Lake offers Dad an opportunity to enjoy one of his favorite views. Each cruise is 120 minutes and can include boater’s lunches for the whole family for an additional $12.99 per person.

Departing from Excelsior Bay, the Lady of the Lake cruises are a great way to take Dad on an afternoon adventure without going far from home. Each cruise is narrated, offering a fun history lesson along with breathtaking views and memories from great moments on the lake.

A wide variety of beers, wines, cocktails and soft drinks are available during the cruise and can be enjoyed at table seating on any of the three levels. Lady of the Lake includes a rooftop deck, as well as two levels of lower-level seating, so all of the views are great ones..

The dinner deck, main deck and sun deck all offer different views, so passengers can feel free to explore each level.

Set the mood by sharing one of Lady of the Lake’s fun facts with Dad beforehand: Built in 1963, Lady of the Lake is still the only triple-deck boat on Lake Minnetonka to this day—which includes the largest open-air deck on the lake.
