Great trip around the lake. It was nice that everyone had a seat. The speed was comfortable so you didn't feel the wakes.

Thank you for taking the tour and time to write a review. We have options for those guests who want to see more of the lake with our Chartered Boat Rental. That sounds like it would be a great option for you - you can cover more of the lake because the time allotted is longer (2 hours). With a... More

We were lucky another couple was there Sunday for the 12 noon tour as they only go with a minimum of 4 people. It was a Sunday in September so not peak season. Needless to say we had the boat to ourselves. The gentleman running the boat was most informative. We learned more than expected. Was a bit surprised that... More

Thank you for taking the boat tour and we are happy to hear that you were able to have the boat practically to yourself! The life jackets are located under each seat - with the seats being open, the captains tend to not point out their locations since they are out in the open. Hope to see you again! More

Wonderful driver/guide, a local woman with an obvious love for the area in which she grew up. (Wish we'd gotten her name for personal kudos). We are new part-time Lake residents and she was so helpful to us, pointing out areas of interest. She also gave us directions on how to reach these areas from the road. To access the... More

Our family of six had a great time on the 50 min tour. The beauty of the lake combined with some historical info from our tour guide. The staff at registration and our guide could not have been nicer. May return for a fall tour as the leaves change.
