My closest 3 caches unfound, are now within reach.

From http://www.steamboatminnehaha.org/tickets.cfm

Big Island
on Lake Minnetonka

The Steamboat Minnehaha is anxiously awaiting the day she can pull into the new dock at the new Orono City Park on Big Island.

Tentatively that day will be July 19th when we join forces with the Water Conservation District and their event on the Excelsior Commons. We hope to shuttle passengers back and forth from the park starting at 2:40pm and ending at 6:00pm.

Is there an update on the Big Island cruise? I see where it says there is a one hour cruse AROUND Big Island but doesn't mention stopping there unless I'm missing something.

In the blog section on the site it says

July 19th the Minnehaha will (tentatively) shuttle passengers to and from the Island from 2:40-6pm. This will be a chance for all of you who do not have a boat of your own to come out and walk the trail which is just over a mile long around the Island.

Oops! I must not have read very thoroughly. Thanks!

I sent an email to them since it does not show an option for ticket pricing and here is the reply:

We have not set up a trip schedule for Big Island as of yet. As soon as the decision is made I will have it posted on our website. There is some demand for this so I hope it can happen soon.

Thanks,

Sharon
