Knit the River Cruise

We are going to cruise in 2021!!

A few notes about the cruises this year.

As you can expect, there are some covid precautions we will be taking. 

In past years, we have sold as many as 290 tickets. This year we are limiting the number of tickets so that we can be as socially distant as possible. Also to maintain some distancing should we have to vacate the top and front decks for inclement weather.

The meals will be box meals instead of a buffet. We will send you a menu a few weeks before each cruise to get your box meal order. There will still be a cash bar.

Masks are no longer required to enter the shop or the boat if you are fully vaccinated. Honor system rules, we trust our customers to do the right thing as you've done throughout the pandemic. Above all, we will show respect and kindness and ask our customers to do the same because we are all at different points with regard to comfort level. Onward, friends!

Thank you for your help keeping our community safe!

You will not need a paper ticket for this event. We will add your name to our guest list and check your name off as you arrive at the boat! You will get an email confirmation when you check out online. We will send you an email as we get closer to the event with more details on the day.



The boat dock is directly to the south of our building. Just a few steps from our side door.

If you are coming from the cities on Hwy 36, or from Hwy 94, you will be coming north on Hwy 95 (main street). As you get into town, just before you get to our building, on the river side of the road, you will see a metal building with the name St. Croix Boat and Packet. Turn right just past the building.

Follow the St. Croix Boat & Packet parking signs to free parking, or park for $5 all day in the parking lot.

The closest hotels to our shop and the river are Lora, Crosby and Water Street Inn. There are many other "big box" hotels less than a mile away. There are also air b&b's as well. check out all the lodging options at.

The not so small print...
The boat sails rain or shine so no refunds will be given for inclement weather, there is plenty of indoor seating on the boat. No coupons or discounts apply to this item.

Please don't come to the boat if you are feeling unwell. The health and well being of other knitters is in your hands:) If you are not feeling well, the tickets are transferable, feel free to let us know if you give your ticket to a friend.
