The original and largest fleet of modern charter and dinner cruise boats on Lake Minnetonka also offering classic Lake Minnetonka dining at Al and Alma's Supper Club on Cook's Bay. Whether you're planning an outing for two aboard our public brunch or dinner cruises or a private family, social or corporate function for 149, Al and Alma's Fleet of six luxury yachts is the perfect setting for a memorable brunch, lunch, dinner or moonlight cruise. Cruises depart from Excelsior, Wayzata and our supper club on Cook's Bay. Al and Alma's is the longest operating restaurant on Lake Minnetonka - famous for hand-cut steaks, slow-cooked BBQ ribs, camp-style walleye and homemade desserts. These specialties are complemented by modern-American fare and delightful nightly specials including fresh ocean fish.

Our group event was an grand success. The hors d'oeuvres were top notch, the service wonderful, and the scenery absolutely gorgeous. The boat provided spaces for small conversations while being very conducive to a larger group discussion.

It was not crowed so we were able to sit and move around comfortably. We got a kick out of how young the 'captain' looked. Dinner was ok. I thought the meat was a little dry. The desserts were outstanding. The lemon berry bars were...More
