Loved the Dixie boat ride. Very relaxing. Captain and crew were very hospitable. I rented the Dixie for an event during R family reunion and my family loved it . It was a nice ride and the narrative was great. I would recommend to anyone.

We got our food dockside and carried it aboard the dixie. The cruise lasted an hour or so and it was wonderful. They have some drinks, popcorn, and candy onboard for sale but bring your own if you're hungry. Very relaxing and inexpensive to ride.

Interesting history and scenic tour. It takes over an hour to go all over the lake. If you want to hear the details, be sure to sit near a speaker. There are stairs to the top of the boat, which has the best view, but...More

Now as a professional tour guide as well as a captain I can be critical at times. I have not been in Indiana for many years. As a young child I loved watching the Dixie Boat pass by my Grannys house everyday. What a treat...More
