We asked prior to paying what we will see, we were told lots of nice houses. 1 1/4 hour of house gawking. This lake is extremely built up with $$$ houses everywhere. The narration was interesting because there was alot of Hot Springs and local history. So I learned alot. Lunch was offered, but the grease smell overtook the dining... More

Was fun to see sights of river side big beautiful homes and people having a blast on the river. Also ran into old friends on the boat that i hadn't seen in years. The only thing i recommend is getting cash on this boat to purchase anything due to debt card getting stolen/misplaced.

We reserved the Saturday lunch cruise. Lunch was good and the staff was very friendly. The captain provides an informative narration of the history of Lake Hamilton and the surrounding area. Just a little shout out to our waiter and bartender, you guys were great...Go LSU Tigers!!! Would like to try the evening cruise the next time we're in town.

We took the evening cruise with the dinner option. It was a very relaxing cruise, everyone was friendly and the captain even conducted a wedding before we launched. After dinner they opened the dance floor, but I managed to miss that😄. Only complaint was that my prime rib was very very fatty.

We reserved the Friday night dinner cruise. It was a full 2 hour ride that was beautiful. We started promptly at 6pm. We enjoyed the first half on the upper level. The captain provides a complete history about the lake and the area while cruising. We then went downstairs for dinner and dancing. The staff was friendly. The food was... More

Took the dinner cruise with our elderly mothers. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed a good meal. The wait staff and crew members could not have been nicer or more helpful. The narration about the lake and surrounding area could be updated along with the sound system, but all in all a great night.

The 2 hour cruise of Lake Hamilton was pleasant and enjoyable. We were even treated by a pilot sky wrting a smiley face in the sky. The narration was also interesting. Our waitress was attentive and cordial. Sadly, the meal left much to be desired...the ribs were tender but not esecially flavorful; the chicken breast was small and dry...no hint... More

We took the evening 2 hour dinner cruise on the Belle. While you don't have to purchase a meal to take the cruise, we chose to do so. There are several choices of entree (fish, ribs, chicken, vegetable) which you choose when you purchase your tickets. While not gourmet, the food was good. The lake has many beautiful homes and...

Took the sunset/dinner cruise. Was EASY to book(inexpensive, too!) -wonderful folks w/servant's hearts (ESPECIALLY MELISSA!!)-GR8 boat (BIG&STEADY)-delicious food, & dancing was SOOOO fun! Offered air-conditioned dining next to large picture windows, as well as open-air viewing atop three deck levels (top deck was where we watched sunset on the water-ABSOLUTELY STUNNING). The tour of waterfront homes was excellent (along with... More

We took an hour sightseeing cruise - we enjoyed traveling the coastline and seeing the beautiful houses/mansions on Lake Hamilton. The volume of the speakers were perfect and a little history lesson was provided as well.
