Very interesting and entertaining boat ride! Awesome way to check out all the other chain lakes! Very awesome scenery!

Recently not too long ago, we had ended up coming to Old Forge New York. One of the things we eventually ended up doing was Old Forge lake Cruises. The day we ended up doing it... read more

So relaxing! We enjoyed every minute of the boat ride and loved the channels in between the lakes. Really fun. There was a little glich with our reservation and our subway lunch was not there waiting for us. No big deal. It was waiting for us when we disembarked and took it down to the park in Inlet to enjoy.... More

This is the 2nd time we've taken this ride. It's a nice way to get a different perspective on the area. Be sure to bring a light jacket in the spring or fall even if the day seems fairly warm so you can remain comfortably outside for the best views.

My husband and I had taken the mail boat ride in the past. There was only one seat left on the trip so my son was able to enjoy the mail boat trip. He enjoyed viewing the cottages from the lake. He was impressed that the captain had trips for the dogs,ther would run to the dock for their treats.... More

Very nice trip. The captain and first mate were very knowledgeable and friendly. The views were beautiful. Great that they had beverages and light snacks on board. It was a chilly day and that hot chocolate was just right. We were surprised to see several loons right from the boat as they tend to be pretty shy birds. I liked... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our almost 2-hour tour of Fulton Chain of lakes (from Old Forge pond to Lake #4). Obviously the experience was even better due to a smaller weekday morning crowd and a beautiful sunny day (but me being a "boat person" - I would have loved it in any weather). The captain pointed out a variety of homes... More

We booked this trip and we had a cool day- so not the best...there really is not lots to see on this almost 1 1/2 hr, boat ride...if you want a leisurely ride around the lake and to look at the boring homes and camps... that's a way to get out there. Staff good- they sell cocktails ( red wine... More

Even though we went on our lake cruise after the leaves were past their prime it was still very scenic and pretty. I did see some loons! The captain narrated during the cruise and he was very informative without being too over-the-top. He pointed out lots of landmarks and had some good stories to tell. We thought it was well... More

We had never taken the boat ride ( we usually take the train ride) so we decided to try it. Very nice and relaxing. Only problem we had was that there were only 3 seats to a row so we could not all sit together ( but we managed ). Also like the chair lift ride we were a little... More
