Led by Captain Josef Vich, Mississippi River Charters offers private fishing, sightseeing and cruising experiences on the upper Mississippi River. Groups of up to six people can board the 17-foot Montauk Boston Whaler for four or eight hour trips to meet the business, entertainment and recreational interests of customers in the Guttenberg area.
