Mid-week cruise in September on a spectacular fall day. Very entertaining, our guide was very knowledgeable. Two hour cruise went by all too quickly. Do yourself a favor and take this cruise. You'll have lots of great memories, and bring your camera, too!

On our recent visit to old forge we took a cruise on the Fulton chain of lakes. We had done this cruise before several years ago. The crew was very informative and it was a beautiful day to be out on the lake.

We had a great time on the lake cruise, but the fall foliage no where to be found. Not the fault of the cruise, just Mother nature. Worth the time, just make sure to make reservations. Boat books up quickly.

Great view of Bald Mountain and various sights along the way to Fourth Lake. The captain is very informative. The fall colors were fantastic. It is a great way to see the lakes and the sites on the lakeside.

This cruise was great for a couple of reasons. The captain was very informative. And I can't say as I've ever done a boat cruise on a lake that lasted just short of 2 hours. This was particularly a great cruise because it was peak...More
