Channel your inner Mark Twain. Read, rock, and relax on the water, at the foot of a retired Northern Pacific Ore dock.

The Griffin is a functioning riverboat, driven by paddle wheels, originally modeled after historic Mississippi steamboats.

It is located at a mom and pop boat yard, which is quite different from a fancy marina. Work happens here. Metal is welded here. Engines are torn apart and put back together here. Friends become family here.

Come and become a part of the Griffin’s story.

The space
The Northern Pacific Ore Dock was commissioned to be built in 1912. She stands 80 ft tall, and about 1900 feet long. In the mid 2000s, the approach track was scrapped, to make room for the current Loon’s Foot Landing.

The Griffin was built in 1959. She was modeled after old steamships, which were known for their elegant and over the top style. I have been working tirelessly to bring the boat back to her former glory, and am so excited to be able share my passion project with you!

The Griffin will remain docked during your stay, she’s not quite ready to take on the open seas yet!
