Overview
More
The original and largest fleet of modern charter and dinner cruise boats on Lake Minnetonka also offering classic Lake Minnetonka dining at Al and Alma's Supper Club on Cook's Bay. Whether you're planning an outing for two aboard our public brunch or dinner cruises or a private family, social or corporate function for 149, Al and Alma's Fleet of six luxury yachts is the perfect setting for a memorable brunch, lunch, dinner or moonlight cruise. Cruises depart from Excelsior, Wayzata and our supper club on Cook's Bay. Al and Alma's is the longest operating restaurant on Lake Minnetonka - famous for hand-cut steaks, slow-cooked BBQ ribs, camp-style walleye and homemade desserts. These specialties are complemented by modern-American fare and delightful nightly specials including fresh ocean fish.

It can be a bit pricey... but a great bunch of boats and people providing service and smiles. The location is tricky and can be a long drive home... but it is scenic.
