We stopped here for a ride up the Fox River. The $7.50 price is cheap compared to many other places we've been to. It's a 50 minute ride with some narration about the history of the area.

Nothing exceptional, but as advertised. A short cruise north on the Fox River with beautiful views of Pottawatomie Golf Course and St. Charles from a different perspective than from your car. Friendly, helpful and informed staff add to the river experience. Definitely worth the time...More

This is a really fun activity to do in the West Suburbs. It is very reasonably priced and beautiful scenery on cool breeze on a hot Summer day. A friend of mine rented the whole boat out for my engagement party and it was amazing!...More

We took the river cruise whilst on a day trip to the area on the weekend. The weather was glorious and the cruise was very restful. I thought the price ($7.50 per adult) was very reasonable too.

Great way to spend some time. The staff was friendly and the paddleboat was in great shape. Not too much to see but it's a way to get out on the river if you don't own a boat. Great for families and children.

This can be a very pleasant cruise if you have a large private group and can entertain yourselves by talking to one another. The river is restful, the crew courteous and efficient however, there is not much to see along the river - not much...More
