We did the eagle watching tour with dessert. It was a nice ride although we would have liked more commentary on the area. The staff was very nice and we did enjoy it.

We contacted the crew by email and reserved our reservation. They took us on a 1 1/2 hr cruise around the lake. There were food and beverages available. Great info about the lake, area, and views of beautiful lake houses and eagles! A must see!

We took the desert cruise. It was great, we saw lots of eagles!!! The best part may of been the thunder and lighting storm, it was incredible. The Captain was great and the tour guide was informative. I would take this again!
