Deck on Deck
Towboating in the Twin Cities



This is the true story of how Captain Bob Deck, fresh from the River Academy, works his way into the Captain’s seat of a diesel-powered towboat on the mighty Mississippi River. Meet the larger than life river boat pilots who taught him the ropes of being a deckhand and prepared him for a long career of towboating. Ride along with Captain Bob and smell the river, see the adventure and hear the sounds as if you were standing on the rolling deck of a Mississippi river towboat. Get to know the St. Paul harbor from the deck of a commercial towboat.
