Minnesota Boat Club

Rowing in Saint Paul Since 1870

Minnesota Boat Club has been promoting health and fitness through the sport of rowing since 1870. Our programs cater to a wide variety of competitive and recreational rowers. The historic boathouse is located on the shores of Raspberry Island and is the jewel of downtown Saint Paul's Mississippi waterfront. The club maintains a beautiful landscape and lovingly restored banquet hall available for your next special event.
