We had a great time. The captain had great stories about the area around the lake. He was accommodating to our passenger with the walker. (stroke) They welcome dogs. He even had water down for them. I highly recommend Snow Pond Cruises. Apparently, they even do weddings on the boat.

I live on the lake and have taken many, many Snow Pond Cruises over the years. It's a terrific way for our visiting guests to tour the lake and learn its history. I learn new things each trip! Today's trip was the best trip ever. We had kids on board and Captain Gary made them feel special, and created great memories for all.

Thank you Elizabeth for your kind words. I enjoyed the tour as much as you did. Little Eli and Henry seem to really enjoy it. It was fun being a small part of trying to bring our good vision to those less fortunate kids. Thank you

We were in the area celebrating the upcoming wedding of a friend and when looking for things to do around Augusta I stumbled across Snow Pond Cruises. We took a two hour ride around the lake and were fortunate to have lovely weather. Gary shared so much history about the area and answered all of our questions, and was a great host. Would recommend highly to anyone looking to learn more about the area!

Thank you Cathleen and David for your kind and thoughtful review. You’re right, it is all about making memories especially for those kids. I enjoyed having you all onboard. It’s especially gratifying when a customer hires me two times in one week. I’m so glad that you enjoyed your romantic moonlight dinner cruise. Thank you.
