As our season slowly comes to an end, we took the opportunity to celebrate our amazing employees last night. We are so lucky to have a staff of amazing people that work their tails off all summer long without complaint. Without them we would not be able to bring you the summer fun we pride ourselves on! Cheers to you guys! Each and every one of you are incredible! 🍻

It's time for another #FridayFeature employee! This week brings you the jack of all trades, Mary Grace! Mary Grace plays a lot of roles with us, from Dockhand to Deckhand and even our Wednesday Narrator! So many chances to see that smiling face when you visit!

Mary Grace is a recent graduate of Lawrence University with her degree in Government. Proving again that our staff are not only friendly but ridiculously smart!

Mary Grace's favorite Milwaukee activity is supporting the local drag acts at This Is It or spending way too much money on food at the Milwaukee Public Market.

During her 3 seasons with the Edelweiss Family she has most enjoyed working outside and on the river. She highly recommends the Wisconsin Brat Cruise, because why wouldn't she.... beer and brats, what more can you ask for 🙂!

Next time you rent a pontoon or encounter Mary Grace on a Sightseeing tour make sure to say hey!!

This week's #FridayFeature brings us a double dose of cousin love with Lindsay (Paar) Schwegler and Maddie Paar.
Lindsay is our Special Events Coordinator celebrating her 5th season in this position, though she has been with our company for a lot longer. Lindsay is the friendly voice and face that you encounter when planning a private event on the Edelweiss vessels. Lindsay works extremely hard to make all of our customers' wishes come to fruition on the day of their event. She is extremely dedicated and brings positivity wherever she goes. If you have any private charter needs for the rest of this season or if you're thinking about next year, contact Lindsay and she will make your planning seamless.
This is also Maddie's fifth season. She recently graduated from Steven's Point with a degree in Spanish and is looking to do Event Planning in the Milwaukee Area. She's happy to share her love of Milwaukee with people who are visiting from out of town while cruising with us. Her favorite cruise is the Historic Sightseeing because of all the fun tourists she gets to interact with behind the bar.

Fun fact: these are 2 of 5 Paars that have worked at Edelweiss Cruises.

This weeks #FridayFeature is another All Star Deckhand, Matt.

Matt has been with us for 3 seasons, coming to us in his off time from UW Platteville where he recently graduated with his Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Management.

Matt returns every year because of his love of the water, and we can't say we blame him. Can't beat a summer job outdoors!

Matt's favorite cruise is the Wisconsin Brat Cruise, because it's the "quintessential Milwaukee Cruise... Brats and Beer"! Again, we can't disagree... did we mention Matt's a smart one??

Jump on one of our Saturday Wisconsin Brat Cruises and give a big heyo to Matt, you won't regret it, we promise!
