Unfortunately, the North Star is not fully Handicap Accessible as determined by state law. We do have ramps from the dock to the boat, and will work with you to provide access to the main level. A separate restroom is available on the main floor with full handicapped accessibility. Access to the upper level requires use of stairs. Please call us for specific details for accessibility questions.

No. Because of the finality of being on the water and not having a kitchen on board, our buffet cruises leave the dock with specific portion servings per person. Please be mindful of this as you fill your plate.

Of course! Adult-accompanied children are allowed on all cruises. Children 12 and under cruise at a reduced rate, and children four and under cruise free.

No. Minnesota State Law forbids us from allowing any outside alcoholic beverages or food onboard the North Star.

No. Public cruises begin boarding 15 minutes prior to departure and seating choices are on a first-come basis.

Smoking is permitted on the lower aft deck only.

We cruise rain or shine (unless severe weather arises), but we do require 20 adult reservations for departure. In the event that less than 20 tickets are booked, we will offer you a refund or opportunity to reschedule.

There is little wave movement for a yacht our size. Some movement may be felt, but seasickness on board is rare.

We suggest that you begin planning your event as soon as you have a definite date in mind. Booking early ensures your first choice of date and allows extra time for coordination of all your special details.
