“Relaxing afternoon!”

St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboats
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

What a fun way to spend an hour! The St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboat tour is a lazy trip up the Fox River - beautiful scenery the entire way. The captain gave great information about the surrounding area, which gave me ideas of other places to visit! The cruise is completely worth the trip, and there are plenty of fun activities in the area - a mini golf course, water park, biking, tennis courts and a 9-hole golf course near by. Definitely check this out if you're in the area!

Pleasant way to spend a few hours on a nice day. Easy access with comfortable bench seating on the open upper deck. Be aware the upper deck has a 44 person max limit. Food service available. The boat navigates the river in only a limited area between dams on the river. Not much to see except for a few homes and the private boats and jet ski's motoring along the river. Ample parking available. After cruising enjoy a round of mini golf at the course adjacent to the boat dock.

A paddlewheel trip on the Fox River is an interesting and enjoyable experience for all ages,especially on a warm summer day. Avoid the lines and purchase tickets on line in advance. Make sure that you allow some extra time to explore Pottawatomie Park.

It was fun to cruise the Fox River! It was also great to learn more about the area through the narrative from the captain. The seating is first come, first served, so if you arrive late, you will stand through the ride. We rode on the upper deck without a roof, but the lower deck is mostly enclosed.
