Mississippi River Charters

As a leading provider of charter boat services we take pride in offering the best private fishing, sight-seeing and cruising experiences on the upper Mississippi River.  Capatain Joe holds a U.S.C.G. Master Captain's License and has been boating on the Mississippi River for over 40 years.

Prior to forming Mississippi River Charters Captain Joe was a bank founder and president in Iowa.  Today he is retired but remains involved with the bank he founded. 

First Mate Troyce, Captain Joe's wife, assists Captain Joe on some charters.  Together they have prepared several "gourmet" meals both on and off the river.  They would be happy to cater any special food requests on the boat you might have. 

Shed the stress and worry of everyday life and enjoy a fantastic time. Contact Mississippi River Charters today.
