I was there with a group from work with special needs. We had two walkers and a wheelchair. Staff were great accommodating our needs. Two women took the lady on the wheelchair on first then assisted staff with the two ladies using the walkers. The boat is clean and fairly new. There is a brief narrative history then just a...

Nice way to spend an hour. Scenic cruise on lovely Otsego Lake. Small taped guide then just sit back and enjoy the scenery.

Living near by, I had always wanted to take this tour on the lake. The boat is very clean and well maintained. Be aware cash only...which we had known. Try to park in the NY state lot next to the boat/hotel property (free), or pay for one of the village spots ($2 hour - change or CC). We went on... More

Our hour-long tour was extended by about 15 minutes as there was a fire at a building up the lake and the captain wanted to check it out. It was very hot on the open upper deck, so DH and I went down to the enclosed lower deck, which also was very warm. A little air conditioning would be good.... More

Fun and informative tour of the lake - the fact that it was a gorgeous day made it all the better. Get a spot up top for the good views, tickets purchased at the dock.

Pleasant ride on a small section of the lake. Boat was immaculate and the like history talk was interesting. The ride is slow and smooth going along each shore. Enjoyable hour

The boat ride is an ok attraction. The problem is not the boat, it is the lake. By that I mean the forest, for the most part, goes right down to the water, and there really isn't anything to see. It is a pleasant hour on the water, but I really think I would spend my money on something else.

If you enjoy boat rides and great scenery, this tour is for you. Boat has an open upper deck for viewing the lake and surrounding areas. Limited seating in the upper deck, but lots of room for standing. The lower deck is enclosed except for a hidden deck in the very front of the boat. The lower deck has plenty... More

My daughter gifted me with tickets on the Glimmerglass Queen tour boat. It was a beautiful day for a boat tour. The narrated portion is interesting. The staff is professional. It was a relaxing and lovely way to end our visit to Cooperstown. Drinks are served at a bar in the enclosed section, where tables and chairs are available. Upstairs,... More

Great way to cool off or get some sun while learning about the Cooperstown area. Friendly staff and a bar on board. what could be bad.
