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

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.

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).

One of the couples that were staying at our hotel told us we must take this boat ride, so we did. :-) I'm glad we did. The views were beautiful. :-) Our guide was awesome!! The Camps were gorgeous!! It was the perfect end to our trip. Just remember to bring your credit cards, because they don't accept cash.

We wanted to get out on the lake during our stay so decided to go on this tour. I thought Lake Placid was pretty from shore but seeing it from the water is even more stunning. Rember to bring plastic as they do not take cash. My husband and I enjoyed the tour and seeing and hearing about some of... More

Good lake tour of the mansions (although the owners call then "camps") $15 a head wasn't unreasonable for the tour, but try not to sit in the front of the boat, they had plastic draped I guess to prevent spray and it cut down on the view somewhat).
