Make Your Wedding Events Unique & Memorable with a Private Charter

Don’t settle for the ordinary when it comes to your wedding day. Turn your special day into an unforgettable wedding ceremony and reception aboard one of the most unique wedding venues in Minnesota on the waters of beautiful Gull Lake! Let Gull Lake Cruises help you with planning and give you a spectacular outdoor venue for your once-in-a-lifetime event.

Gull Lake Cruises has a list of local vendors to coordinate your flowers, music, and more. You can bring live music on board or use our state-of-the-art sound system to get your guests dancing! We’ll also simply help you plan for your big day by personalizing our yacht, the North Star, to match the vision for your wedding events – from lights and music to food and decor.

If you’re set on a traditional church wedding, you can still turn your reception into a party your friends and family will be talking about for years to come. The North Star can hold up to 116 passengers, or 92 passengers with a dining event, and we’ll customize the yacht with as many flowers, pictures and videos as you’d like. Your wedding party will board the North Star at Cragun’s Resort on Gull Lake. Ask about our other location pick-ups.

“Michele the Cruise Wedding Director was exceptional during the entire process. Michele’s suggestions, for food, liquor, tables and flowers were spot on. Everyone raved about the food especially the pot roast and layered cake. The decorations on the boat were elegant, and the flowers were breathtaking. Michele is talented with floral and décor. I would recommend the flower package.

The boat is in pristine condition, lower level covered, the ability to close the upper level. Even with wind and some rain, still comfortable. All staff practiced COVID precautions. Braden was helpful with my wedding Spotify playlist.

We had compliments on what a wonderful, unique wedding experience this was.”

They were so professional, and nice if you could let them know that. We are very happy everyone had a fantastic night! It was definitely a magical day!”

“I can’t thank you and your crew enough for making our day so special. I was so speechless when I came aboard – the boat was decorated so beautifully and you took my breath away! Everyone is still talking about the cruise today and how much fun everyone had. Everyone thought the boat as a venue was such a cool and unique decision. Everyone talked about how nice you and the crew were and how handsome Captain Jay was.”
