 We look forward to welcoming passengers for a sightseeing cruise, dinner or wine tasting!

PLEASE NOTE:  PARKING IS AN ISSUE.  MAKE PLANS AND COME EARLY!

 

The tranquility of our beautiful South Saskatchewan River. Cruising the Prairie Lily Riverboat. Enjoying some of the finer things in life: Bourbon, wines, canapes or Scotch.

 

 

 

We welcome back the Sommeliers from our partner vendor, Co-op Wine Spirits Beer who bring their tasting room to the Prairie Lily on select evenings in July and August.

 July 14 – Guess the Expensive Wine – In this head to head contest, it is time for you to guess if price and value are the same thing by trying two red wines and two white wines that have been specially selected for this evening.  Join us for some fun as we put some outstanding wines to the test.

  July 21 – Exceptional Scotches 1 – Scotch is uniquely enjoyed with its flavours brought forth using the natural resources of the Scottish countryside.  The ageless charm of the Scottish landscape is represented in every sip of a whisky and we are pleased to bring you some of the most exceptional available.

  July 28 – Sonoma versus Napa – It’s time for some California wine dreaming!  These are two of the most popular regions in California and they produce similar yet very different reds and whites.  It is time for you to decide – are you team Sonoma or team Napa?  We’ll try a red and a white from both and talk about what makes each unique.

  August 4 – Spanish Wines – Spanish wines are known for many things and punching above its weight is an important one.  Spain’s wine producing regions have quality wines and the ability to provide great value.  Join us to take a look at what there is to offer and how you get incredible wines with price points to match.

August 5 – 9 Mile Beer and Sausage PairingWhat is better than 9 Mile Legacy Craft Beer and Prairie Meats sausage?  Having it on a cruise on The Prairie Lily, of course!  We’re pairing two beers with two separate sausages all while enjoying a cruise along the South Saskatchewan.  This is everything Saskatoon was meant to be!

August 11 – Rhoning on the River – The Rhone Valley is known for incredible whites and eloquent reds especially the granddaddy of them all – Chateauneuf de Pape. While you might not be traveling there just yet, we can sail down the river while sipping some of the wines this region has to offer.  Just like you would if you were there.

August 18 – Exceptional Scotches 2 – Scotch Whisky’s distinct tastes depend on where in Scotland it is made or distilled.  From the Lowlands to the Highlands, Islay to Campbeltown, there are so many to indulge!  Tour with us again to get more samplings of this eloquent drink.

August 26 – 9 Mile Beer and Sausage Pairing – again!  What is better than 9 Mile Legacy Craft Beer and Prairie Meats sausage?  Having it on a cruise on The Prairie Lily, of course!  We’re pairing two beers with two separate sausages all while enjoying a cruise along the South Saskatchewan.  This is everything Saskatoon was meant to be!

The wine tasting cruises board at 6:45 pm, depart at 7:00 pm and return at 8:30 pm.  The Beer and Sausage Pairing will board at 6:00, depart at 6:30 and return at 8:30.
