First Mate

Maggie was born and raised in Mincoqua, spending the majority of her summer time on the lake skiing as a Minaquabat.  She studies architecture at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.  Maggie enjoys everything in and around water and under the sun and looks forward to seeing you out on the lake this summer.


Trysten has spent his life moving around the country, but Minocqua has always been home. He has fished, explored, and enjoyed the many lakes of the northwoods during the summers since he was a child. In the winters he attends school at Texas A&M studying economics. Trysten enjoys fishing, sailing, skiing, and walks on the beach during majestic sunsets.

Minocqua Party Cruises was established in order to deliver a fun and memorable experience for anyone looking to enjoy the beautiful lakes of northern Wisconsin.  The goal of each of our pontoon rides is for each of our passengers to have the best time possible.  That is why we go above and beyond to ensure that your experience is 100% care-free, so you can focus on what matters most.  Fun and relaxation.  

Each crews travels the waters of the Lake Minocqua Chain.  This chain consists of Lake Mincoqua, Lake Kawaguesaga, Lake Tomahawk, and Mid Lake.  Every Lake has something unique to offer.  

Lake Minocqua offers access to multiple bars/restaurants including The Thirsty Whale, The Boathouse, Yacht Club, and Little Brown Jug.  It is also where you can find the Min-Aqua Bat Ski Team performing at 7PM every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

At 3462 acres Lake Tomahawk is the largest lake on the chain.  During the summers you will find many boats pulled up at Lakeside Grill to grab tasty appetizers and craft cocktails.  On the far side of the lake sits a popular beach that is a fantastic spot to stop for lunch.

Perhaps the most fun of all the lakes is Lake Kawaguesaga.  "Kawaga" is the home of the highly popular Beer Can Island.  Warm summer days draw dozens of boats to this famous location.  Besides being a great bathroom stop it is the perfect place to bask in the sun, kick a few back, and make friends with the most entertaining people in town.

Mission: Minocqua Party Cruises provides a medium in which groups of people can have fun, relax, and create new memories in order to maximize their vacation.

Cruise Details
Our pontoon boats comfortably seat up to 14 guests.  Rides depart from the boat launch on Lake Minocqua by the public library but alternative options are available.  If you have a large group the private cruises are the best option.  These are perfect for occasions including birthday parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties, business/work outings, and families.  The 6-8 hour pontoon ride provides the perfect amount of time to see all four lakes and hit all the prime locations.

When you arrive you will be greeted by the captain. They will help you load the boat and you'll quickly be out enjoying water.  As you cruise the lakes the crew will point out interesting landmarks, make sure all guests are comfortable, and take care of all boat related duties.

Wisconsin weather can be unpredictable.  We understand.  If it rains you have two options.  We can reschedule your pontoon cruise for a later day/time or offer you a refund.
