Port of Des Moines

Ahoy! Welcome to the one-stop Downtown entertainment site for planning your evening on foot or by sea! Or with Private Client Catering, you can host your event almost anywhere.

Plan your event around lunch at the Trellis Café with a visit to the Botanical Garden. Or enjoy the view of Downtown Des Moines from the Riverwalk Hub then take a stroll along the river.

Plan ahead and your entire event can be on the water, cruising down the river in the Jon Anderson White Riverboat with cocktails and dinner included.

While we had hoped the Jon Anderson White Riverboat would to be up and running by now, the floods this summer has set back construction of the new docks at Saylorville Marina. We need those to be able to load and unload passengers safely. We will post updates here as we know more information. It’s not too soon to plan for next season, contact us today for details.
