The vessel is very comfortable has indoor and outdoor seating. The narration is very informative, and does not last the entire time, so you can enjoye private conversations. There is food and drink available on board. The cost is reasonable for the time of the ride.

As a first time visitor to Cooperstown and a fisherman, I was intrigued with Otsego and wanted to take a boat ride to see the source of the Susquehanna River and the beauty of this largely unspoiled lake. The Glimmerglass Queen offers several trips this time of year with a 10-person minimum to take the tour. The minimum is very... More

My husband, Mother and I visited Cooperstown the last week of August and wanted to take a tour of Lake Otsego. Admission was $16 a person, and the boat ride takes about an hour. We arrived about 15 min. before the next launch. No one was manning the ticket booth (the lady inside said someone would be back in a... More

The boat itself is beautiful. The deck below has seating, and a bar, where you can get alcoholic or non alcoholic drinks. There is a narration for the first 15 min or so, after that you get the enjoy the beauty of the lake. It's an hour trip, so you don't go the full length of the lake. We got... More

We took the boat ride today. Found the boat trip while walking around Cooperstown after visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. Think Cooperstown is pretty? Wait till you see the boat tour. We're definitely coming back. If we lived in the town, we'd make this a regular thing to do for fun. I remember one of my most romantic... More

Treat yourself to a mango smoothie on this trip. Can be warm on the boat. Make sure to pick a spot in the shade or sit by the breeze on the bottom.

This was a nice, relaxing way to spend about an hour. It's the only game in town, but that doesn't explain the less-than-professional operation. From the image of the employees, the cash-only payment method, and the seemingly bored owner/operator, this isn't a cruise that will inspire stories to tell friends or spark romance with that special someone. They use a... More

Our family of four arrived at the Glimmerglass Queen's dock location about 45 minutes before scheduled departure time to be told that they started selling tickets 15 minutes before the scheduled departure. The quiet group of employees inside and around the small booth were all smoking. The sign in the window said that the $15 fare could be paid by... More
