Semi-private & private events

The Prairie Lily can also accommodate group books – corporate, family, or any group.

We are now accepting semi-private and private bookings for summer 2022!

For bookings or questions, please call 306-955-5459, extension 3 or email office@theprairielily.com
Please note: We’re sorry, but we cannot accommodate weddings on The Prairie Lily.

If you are interested in booking The Prairie Lily for groups, the following should provide some initial information for you:


If you have a semi-private booking for up to 52 people, we will have your group start on one of the two decks together. Halfway through the cruise, we will switch the entire group to the other deck. We do not rent either deck exclusively.


Dinner Cruises are only available on our 6:30 pm departure. The cruise is 1.5 hours and returns to the dock at 8:00 pm.

The Prairie Lily is pleased to welcome Flavours Catering as our catering partner. Chef Kevin Kwan is a highly talented and experienced professional, able to design a meal that suits your taste. From a Prime Rib Roast to Chicken Bellagio to Saskatchewan Walleye Florentine, you have many options to choose from.

Pricing ranges from $30-45 per person, in addition to the cruise fee as noted. Your dinner pricing includes the meal with plate service, as well as a 1.5-hour cruise. You are able to select a single, three course meal for your group to enjoy that includes a starter salad, bun, entrée, starch, vegetable, and dessert. Individual selections are not available except in the instance of dietary restrictions. Taxes and gratuities are additional as are other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. 

Appetizer cruises are typically on our 6:30 pm departure and are always exclusive bookings. The cruise is 1.5 hours and returns to the dock at 8:00 pm.  Our most popular Appetizer selection is meal sized and well priced at $30 per person.  Taxes and gratuities are additional as are other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.  Menus are available upon request.

Ship Capacity
The Captain’s Lounge is the back dining cabin on the Main Deck of the Prairie Lily and seats up to 30 people. The forward Saskatoon Lounge on the Main Deck can also seat up to 30 people. Combined, 52 seated guests (mirroring our upper deck limit) are welcome to enjoy a dinner cruise.  Please note, dinner is not served on the upper deck.

The upper deck of the Prairie Lily has a canopy and open seating. We can welcome up to 52 passengers “up top”. Our Stewards will make arrangements for guests in the main dining cabins to head upstairs and enjoy the weather and fresh air after dinner.

From there, mix and match according to your need! We are registered to carry up to 119 passengers. Cocktail cruises or just a cruise for your group can all be accommodated. You are welcome to the cabins or of all of the Prairie Lily. We apologize, but we cannot rent the upper deck exclusively – all our passengers like to enjoy it!

PLEASE NOTE: Renting one or both cabins for your guests does not translate into a rental of the complete ship. We reserve the right to sell additional seats to other passengers while respecting your event as a private function.

Please note – Group booking are not always available. We only offer individual tickets for Saturday and Sunday Sightseeing Cruises at 2:00 and 4:00. Dinner Cruise tickets on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings are also restricted to individual ticket sales. Why? Well, The Prairie Lily is pretty popular! We want to make sure there is opportunity to all to access tickets so, on our weekend cruises, we have decided to ensure they are available to all. Additionally, we have a number of people with gift certificates that have not been able to use them over the last couple years. Again, we want to ensure there is an opportunity for availability and not everything has been sold off to groups.

Please call Joan at 306-955-5459, extension 3, to discuss your event.
