Dinner Cruise

Sunset from the bow

The two hour Sunset Dinner Cruise aboard the American Lady is the perfect way to take in Dubuque's beautiful river scenery while enjoying a delicious meal catered by Catfish Charlie's Restaurant.  This is usually the most relaxing cruise of the day filled with sunsets, cooler temperatures, and good times.  We offer this cruise four nights per week at times that fit most schedules.
