Get Your Team On Aboard

There is more to a corporate cruise or private charter than just drifting along.

While you’re in the area: Wisconsin Dells, the Waterpark Capital of the World® invites guests to enjoy the largest concentration of outdoor and indoor waterparks on the planet. But that’s not all — drink in local breweries, wineries, and distilleries, relax at local spas, get in some golf, eat, drink, shop, and more.

Lake Geneva Cruise Line

With eight different vessels to choose from, the Lake Geneva fleet offers both public tours and private charters on the sparkling blue waters of Lake Geneva. Comfortably transport from 12 to 225 passengers on boats ranging from the Lorelei, a 41’ cabin cruiser, to the Grand Belle of Geneva, designed after turn-of-the century steamers.
