Boat Tour, Sightseeing
John Kerschbaum is the Owner of Gondola Romantica. In 1998, the gondolier enthusiast saw a photograph of a gondola and was intrigued! Growing up alongside the St. Croix River, John developed a passion for being on the water. This passion combined with his wanderlust drove John to spend years as a guide for canoe trips in the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota. But after seeing that photo, John turned his attention to offering gondola rides on the river in downtown Stillwater- a quaint, historic town with beautiful bluffs and a scenic waterway. John had an authentic gondola shipped to him from Venice, ensuring the real, romantic gondola experience!
