FAQ's

A Word About Trains

blocked streets can cause delays

image6

We appreciate railroads and the hard work of their crews, but travelers need to be aware of possible driving delays due to Dubuque streets being blocked by trains. If you are approaching our location by driving northbound on US Hwy 61/151, do not take the White Street or 9th Street Exits to get to us. Both of these exits cross railroad tracks, and trains can sometimes block street traffic as long as 30 minutes. That could cause you to miss your cruise!


Instead, continue north and take the Kerper Blvd Exit.  At the traffic light, turn right, then turn left onto 16th Street.  Be in the right lane, and turn right onto Admiral Sheehy Dr, and then take the next right turn to arrive in our parking lot.  On this route, the road takes you over the railroad tracks avoiding the possibility of being delayed by a train!

Please tell us that you are bringing the little ones.

Babies Are People Too!

We happily let children 3 years of age and younger take a ride free of charge, but they are counted as a passenger just like paying customers. So, when you make reservations, please inform us if you have that little bundle of joy so we can add them to our passenger list!

Where to Find Us

We are located in the Dubuque Yacht Basin. Park in Catfish Charlie's Restaurant parking lot, and walk around to the back of the building.  You will see our ticket office and yacht located at the same dock.
