“great boat tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

My wife and I spent 5 days in Lake George this past week and went on 2 boat rides on Lake George. The first was on the Minnie Ha Ha. it's a paddle wheeler, which takes you on a 1 hour shoreline tour with narration by the Captain. There is a snack bar and booze onboard. It's well worth the money. It's only an hour long, but the scenery is stunning. The next day we went on an island tour aboard the MV Mohican. What a great time!! We left steel pier at 2:30 pm and went 16 miles up the the 32 mile long lake. We went in between a bunch of islands and through some narrow straits. The narration was fun and informative. Again, there is a full service bar onboard and food. This was a great time. We returned at 5pm. So, if you want to chill out for a couple hours and tour the Queen of american lakes, take the island tour on Mohican. Definitely worth the money

“Mohigan 5 hour trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

The Mohigan's 5 hour trip to the north end of Lake George was well worth the trip. $9 Breakfast on the ship was average.
Not sure the Health Dept. would be pleased the server took the
covers off of the food & set them on the floor!
No iced tea available, had to pay an additional $1.50.

“Love the Minnie Ha-Ha”

We have been to Lake George a few times and always take a boat ride. I never get tired of touring the beautiful lake and hearing about its history. All ages will enjoy.

“Sunday Brunch Champagne Cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We have been 3 years in a row on this cruise with our child and have thoroughly enjoyed it every year. This year the boat (Sacrament) was not as full as previous years. All seating on the inside gives great views of the lake. The variety and quality of food is great. Omlette station where they make them to order. You are served soft drinks coffee etc., and champagne free of charge with meal. After gorging ourselves, go up on the top deck and enjoy the view up the lake with ample seating. Be prepared to view your boarding pictures for purchase. The entire package is $33, which our little girl wanted...OK. There is a narrative with all kinds of cool facts about the lake. This boat goes as far as the Sagamore then turns back. Entire cruise takes about 2 hours and 10 minutes. We got a small discount on tickets with AAA.

“Nice cruise on Minnie HaHa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We enjoyed our lake cruise on Minnie HaHa. Very relaxing and scenic. Staff was pleasant. Took your picture upon boarding but as you disembarked asked an outrageous price of $23. Cruise only cost $29.
