The hour-long, narrated tour travels 16 miles on one of the world's most beautiful lakes. See and hear about the stately manors situated along the shore, Adirondack wildlife, and Whiteface Mountain, site of the alpine events during the 1980 Winter Olympic Games. A Lake Placid boat tour is a must for all visitors to the Adirondacks. Rain or shine, it is truly a delightful experience. « less

Took the hour long boat tour of Lake Placid from the Lake Placid Marina which is located on Mirror Lake Drive which is between Mirror Lake and Lake Placid. Very enjoyable and informative. You get a wonderful view of all the lake front homes (mansions called camps) each with its own boat house(s). Great history and information provided by the... More

We were back for a "reunion" of sorts - I attended summer camp on the shores of Lake Placid. The camp had been bought and converted to a private "camp" - one of those magnificent family estates. We decided to take the first boat trip from the marina. It was exactly as described here. Tremendous fun, very campy and corny... More

I've never been on a boat before and found this gem for the perfect birthday outing. Our 7yr old son even had a great time.

It was a good way to tour Lake Placid but it is a tour no more than witnessing the "camps" of the favored rich. However, it is a good way to know the lake or spend an hour admiring the landscape that surrounds the lake. The price could be reduced though.

Having been to Lake Placid the town several times and only sight seeing around Mirror Lake, I was glad my wife talked me into going on this boat cruise of Lake Placid the lake. The tour goes out and around the permitter of Lake Placid with a humorous Captain chatting along the way. The views are splendid and our captain... More

This tour is the only way to see the actual Lake Placid. You are on a medium sized pontoon boat that is very comfortable if you go on the one with the padded seats. The boat captain was just chock-a-block full of information about the camps on the lake, the history of the lake and the murder mystery! I leave... More

Our company always asks what to do beside go up Whiteface Mountain....and we immediately recommend this boat tour! It is an hour of pure enjoyment, Tickets are very reasonable and it is worth every penny and most placemats (paper) found in every store in town offer $1.00 off the tour. You will be in a covered boat with windows that... More

On a busy 4th of July weekend we found the town to be too packed with visitors to enjoy soooo off we went on a boat cruise of the lake. This was a perfect side trip on a nice day (best to bring a sweater or jacket even if it is warm, as the lake is breezy). We learned a... More

Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic young man was our tour guide for this one-hour boat ride that afforded great views of the surrounding mountains and forests via the Lake Placid waterway. Many stories go with the ride. Good value at $15 ($10 for kids).
