A Top-Rated Minnesota Wedding Venue
Make Your Wedding Events Unique & Memorable with a Private Charter
Don’t settle for the ordinary when it comes to your wedding day. Turn your special day into an unforgettable wedding ceremony and reception aboard one of the most unique wedding venues in Minnesota on the waters of beautiful Gull Lake! Let Destiny Cruises help you with planning and give you a spectacular outdoor venue for your once-in-a-lifetime event.
Destiny Cruises has a list of local vendors to coordinate your flowers, catering and more. You can bring live music on board or use our state-of-the-art sound system to get your guests dancing! We’ll also simply help you plan for your big day by personalizing our yacht, the North Star, to match the vision for your wedding events – from lights and music to food and decor.
If you’re set on a traditional church wedding, you can still turn your reception into a party your friends and family will be talking about for years to come. The North Star can hold up to 116 passengers, or 92 passengers with a dining event, and we’ll customize the yacht with as many flowers, pictures and videos as you’d like. Your wedding party can either come on board at the Destiny dock across from Ernie’s on the lake, or Destiny can make pickups at Cragun’s Resort, Madden’s Resort, Grand View Lodge or Quarterdeck Resort for guests who are staying there.
Make your dream wedding and reception come true on the waters of legendary Gull Lake. We’ll do all of the planning, you just sit back and enjoy the cruise. Please call 218-866-2015 for more information, menus and pricing today. Your Destiny awaits!

“We did our wedding reception on destiny cruises. We did a 3 hour boat ride (It was not long enough). Michele was very gracious with all my questions and made sure our day was perfect. Captain Jay is very knowledgeable about the lake. He is also great with people and children! His wife works on the boat as well, she is also amazing. All of our guests loved the boat ride. They thought it was an amazing venue. Before we chose Destiny Cruises, I called about 20 venues. This was the most affordable for our group size. I personally think this was the best decision. We had perfect weather and a perfect night. Thank you Destiny Cruises!”

“Thank you very much. We thought you were great, the decorating was absolutely stunning and the boat is awesome. The bartenders upstairs; the 2 guys went above and beyond for us. They were so professional, and nice if you could let them know that. We are very happy everyone had a fantastic night! It was definitely a magical day!”

“I can’t thank you and your crew enough for making our day so special. I was so speechless when I came aboard – the boat was decorated so beautifully and you took my breath away! Everyone is still talking about the cruise today and how much fun everyone had. Everyone thought the boat as a venue was such a cool and unique decision. Everyone talked about how nice you and the crew were and how handsome Captain Jay was.”
