Taylors Falls, MN
Since 1906, tourists by the thousands have enjoyed the scenic beauty of the world famous Dalles of the St. Croix River by excursion boat. This fleet of excursion boats includes the Taylors Falls Queen and the Taylors Falls Princess. The Princess can carry up to 250 passengers, while the Queen holds up to 149. Both vessels are enclosed on the lower level with an open upper deck. Your licensed boat pilot and tour guide will point out the unique rock formations that were left behind as the glaciers retreated thousands of years ago. Among the most outstanding formations is the huge stone cross for which the St. Croix River was named (St. Croix means “Holy Cross.”) Other sites that can be seen from the boats include: the world’s largest glacial kettles or “potholes,” Lion’s Head, Turk’s Head, and the highlight of the boat tour, The Old Man of the Dalles—the most outstanding natural rock face you’ll ever see.
