Why take this tour?

Our 100 minute cruise on PaddleTaps Public and Small Group Tours offer the perfect scenic escape! Are you wanting to get on the lake but have a smaller group? Or just want a date night? This is the right tour for you!

Each public tour includes comfortable seating for 14 guests, BYOB and Bluetooth music. When you reserve your tickets you select how many seats you want.

We are offering all of our boats to be booked for this Public tour in 2023. It will be a first come first serve basis.Private boat captains are included to guide you around some of our favorite spots on Lake Minnetonka! Enjoy tours out of our Back Channel Brewery location or Downtown Excelsior. Both have good vibes but truly depends what floats your boat!

Our downtown Excelsior boats offer a nice scenery of Excelsior, Wayzata and even the famous Big Island! If your looking for more action on the Lake this is the spot for you!

If a lower key setting is more of your jam, the Back Channel Brewery spot is a little more relaxed where you can grab a local brew before or after your cruise.
