Public Tour

Looking to just get out on the water with some friends? Don't want to reserve a full boat? Or maybe its just a date night out on Lake Minnetonka? Don't worry our public tours are perfect for you!

Grab a seat on either our TikiTap or PaddlePub boats. These boats are the EXACT same boats as our private tours, they just allow you to reserve a few seats if you don't want to purchase all 10 tickets to reserve. Or just admit it, you like to mingle with other folks and have a good time.

Our public tours last 100 minutes on the water only and cost roughly $55/seat, we do require at least 6 public seats to book to guarantee to go out, but that typically always fills so don't worry to much. They are all BYOB that comes with a private boat captain and bluetooth music. Typically private tours allow the guests to switch off who is playing the tunes, or the captain can have a play list.

Paddle or Cruise around Lake Minnetonka getting up and close with the big homes that the Lake has to offer. Experience bays that the larger charter boats cannot get into by booking one of our Public Tours.

Small Group/Public Tour (All Boats)

Do you have a smaller group? Or just don't want to rent the entire boat? Book our per seat boating option! Perfect for those smaller groups who still want to go out and celebrate that Birthday/Bachelorette or even just a night out! This option does have a requirement of of 6 guests to guarantee it will go out. But you only pay for as many seats as you want. This option is not guaranteed private, and it is very likely you will be paired with other people! (we offer private cruises that start with 8 ppl-18 ppl)

This public option is only available out of our Back Channel Brewing Location (LazyTap or TikiPubs) and downtown Excelsior on our original Pedal Pub Boat Cruise.
