Sightseeing Cruise & Lunch Cruise

This is a great way to spend your day.  If you wish to ride along and take-in the sights and sounds of the river, you may choose our Sightseeing Cruise option.  Or, you may decide to upgrade to a Lunch Cruise and enjoy a highly praised lunch buffet during this cruise as well.  Either way you are in store for two fabulous hours cruising on the Mississippi River along Dubuque’s shoreline.

On a typical day, our Captain will take us north to Lock and Dam 11 and then within sight of the

Julien Dubuque Monument, visible on the bluffs on the southern edge of the city.
