Because of the power dam that crosses the river in Wisconsin Dells, the Wisconsin River is divided into two parts — the Upper Dells and the Lower Dells. Fortunately, taking the complete Dells Boat Tour® is easy, thanks to Upper Dells and Lower Dells tour docks that are centrally located. They’re easy to find, provide convenient parking, and are located close together.
Boarding Area Locations
Upper Dells Dock: 107 Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells.
Lower Dells Dock: At the junction of Hwys 12, 13 and 16.
