Pleasant and relaxing 45 minute round trip on the lake. Great views of the mountains down the lake, even if they're cloud topped. Friendly crew with some interesting commentary.

We had an excellent time on the lake, the Skipper was informative on the points of interest, without being intrusive on the enjoyment of the trip. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Loved every minute.
