Welcome to Dubuque's American Lady Cruises

Need a gift idea for a loved one, friend, co-worker, or anyone else?  Buy them a gift certificate for the American Lady!  Beginning November 23 and going through December 21, anyone purchasing $100 in gift certificates will receive an additional $30 gift certificate free of charge.



Our 2018 cruising season has come to an end.  As we get our yacht ready for winter, we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who joined us and made memories with us in 2018!  We had visitors from all over the globe (every continent except Antarctica), and made many new friends.  We will build on that in just a few short months. 


Cruising should resume in mid April, 2019, and it is not too early to plan that group event that you are in charge of for this summer.  Contact us and we will help you get it done!

We are also taking reservations for our public cruises, so if you would like to join our Sightseeing, Lunch, Happy Hour, or Sunset Dinner Cruises in 2019, you can make reservations now!

Since we cherish one-on-one communication with each and every one of our guests, we do not have online reservations, but you can make them by calling us at 563-557-9700.




The American Lady specializes in 1.5 to 2 hour outings on the Mississippi River along the shores of Dubuque, Iowa.

We offer public and private cruises, and we are cruising every day of the week.  You will find many details about our Lunch, Happy Hour, and Sunset Dinner Cruises using the “Public Cruises” button on the menu bar at the top of this page.

Call today to make a reservation and we will take you on a memorable excursion on our beautiful stretch of the Mighty Mississippi.
