On the Water with On the Loos Cruises

Summer in Oshkosh is a boater’s paradise. With so many options for water recreation, you’ll find everything from speed boats and sailboats to fishing boats and cigarette boats cruising the open waters; however, there is one boat in particular that is truly unique to Oshkosh and available all summer long for anyone to enjoy!

On the Loos Cruises is a family-owned business operating since 1989. This beautiful Paddlewheel Riverboat is a unique and fun way to spend a warm summer evening exploring up and down the historic Fox River and all around Lake Butte Des Morts. The “On the Loos” vessel offers spacious upper and lower deck seating areas, perfect for hosting parties and corporate events. It also has complete bathroom facilities, cash bar and catering options to tailor to your party’s needs. Private cruises are available for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events and graduations, and can accommodate up to 39 people.

Public cruises are offered weekly during the summer until the first week of October (if the weather is nice, sometimes the boating season will go longer). These 2-hour cruises are available for people of all ages who enjoy relaxing, leisurely rides on the water. On the Loos has a variety of cruise options including a Narrated Sight-Seeing Tour, Sunset Cruises, Tiki Tuesdays, On Wisconsin Wednesdays and so much more. Check them out!
