Between all the truly funny upper deck banter (it’s like a stand-up comedy history lesson), you might get a little touched by the beauty of riding this majestic boat past this unique landscape. The redneck jokes never get old, and the boat really does feel like a ghost ship. We’d go again just to support the vision of this salty... More

This boat ride was ok. I thought we would actually be going onto Caddo Lake, but it's just a short trip down a canal. I would recommend if maybe it was only $10 per person, but not worth the $20 a person. Way too overpriced for a mediocre boat ride and the continuous loud honking got old real quick. My... More

Captain Ron said, "I'm an equal opportunity offender!" Feel free to stay on board as long as you can take a joke! He's fun and entertaining! Laugh, have a good time, relax, on this hour long informative ride down Caddo lake. Well worth the cost! Then, afterwards, go see his gardens and his alligators! Very cool!!!

We went on a steam boat on a little hot day. There are two decks on the boat , on the first the coal is burning and leaves heat around making uncomfortable. On the upper deck the tour guide keeps on honking which blows away your ears. The boat looks hundreds of years old. The tour guide thinks he is... More

On 5/24/14 we took the cruise on the Graceful Ghost Steamboat. The area is beautiful, but the beauty was seriously disturbed by the commentary of the tour director, who we think is the owner and who thinks he is a comedian. He told racist and sexist jokes, and we were especially offended by his totally inappropriate and rude comments about... More

Wow! Yesterday our family went out on the pontoon boat with guide, Byron, to check out Caddo lake. Equal to the beauty of the environment, was our guide's knowledge of the land, lake, wildlife, cypress trees, and local history. Thank you for a memorable adventure!

We went for a trip on the Graceful Ghost yesterday and we're very disappointed Had to be. Pulled back to the dock after a short ride down the river because of engine troubles. No offer of some return money. Also, we had done this trip years ago with the previous owners. That trip was wonderful; deep into the lake with... More

Captain Ron did an excellent boat tour of Caddo Lake and gave us some great history. He also is funny will make you laugh. We went during the memorial Day weekend and the weather was perfect.
