Our Boat

The Victorian Princess is three level paddle wheeeler that is certified to hold up to 120 passengers with two climate controlled enclosed salons for dining or celebration. It has an open third deck that is great for those warm summer days out on the lake. The bow of the boat is a wonderful place to look out on the Lake Erie and see everything it has to offer. We’ll see you soon aboard the Victorian Princess.


Weather Policy

We do not cancel due to weather; the only thing that affects the boat going out on the bay is high winds or lighting. If weather is not permitting we stay docked side and continue the meal. Cancellations for public cruises MUST be received within 36 hours of the scheduled cruise.  There will be no refunds after this time. We need 15 passengers to sail, if not you will be fully refunded or upgraded to any cruise of your choice if we have to cancel.

Non-Smoking Areas

For passenger comfort, all enclosed areas have been designated as non-smoking areas. Smoking is permitted on the outside and third deck.

Menus & Beverage Service

Menus are created by The Colony and are available on the Cruises pages.  We carry Pepsi products and offer a full service bar.


Cars are welcome to park along Dobbins Landing and State Street. Do not drive busses to the boat because the road does not allow you to turn around.

Reservations & Payment

Reservations are required one day prior to cruise. Full payment is also required at the time of the reservation. We Accept cash, check and all major credit cards. If you miss your boat cruise, we’ll move you to another cruise of equal value for a $15 charge or you can receive up to a 60% refund.
