Betty Lou Cruises

You'll find us moored at the Mariner's Inn on Lake Mendota and at Machinery Row on Lake Monona. All cruises include a captain and crew, buffet food service, beverage options and restrooms aboard one of our four motor yachts. Enjoy a unique perspective of Madison throughout spring, summer and fall. Our food surpasses its reputation for excellence. You pick the meal and the time: brunch, lunch, appetizer, dinner or moonlight cruise. Bar service is always at hand: open, partial open, or cash bar. We are here to show you and your group the miles of beautiful shoreline. There has never been a better way to experience Madison than this. From the deck of the Betty Lou, listen to the sound of lapping waves and feel the breeze on your face. Whether you are standing on the open deck or relaxing in our spacious cabin, you have got the best seat in town. Our motor yachts are fully equipped, and our experienced crew is prepared to make your cruise a carefree event to remember. Betty Lou Cruises is part of the von Rutenberg Ventures that also own three waterfront restaurants: Mariner's Inn, Nau-Ti-Gal and Captain Bill's.


We're Madison's Premier Cruise Line! Betty Lou offers Private Group Charters and Public Motoryacht Cruises April through October on Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.
