We went on the 4th of July for the evening cruise. The fireworks were awesome, but the company can't take credit for that! The boat is fine, clean and adequate. DJ did a great job. The staff was great but the food not so! We had a plate with canned beans, ready made potato salad and a good portion of... More

Boat was great, went with a group of 40 all adults, I wouldn't take sma Children. Narration was good, but couldn't hear over the conversations. Grand houses go small cottages. Food was ok, chicken cordon blu was frozen fare but ok, shaved beef was same with gravy. Drive there was beautiful, would recommend taking back roads instead of thruway. Didn't... More

We were on vacation and had had 2 days of rain so today we had sunshine and decided to take the lake cruise. The staff was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The ride was smooth.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a delightful evening crushing up and down the lake on the Summer Wind. It was a great way to see the lake from another view. There was a great band on board on the top level, while the lower level was more of a conversational atmosphere. The food was delicious, good quality, and piping... More

My sister, my Mom, and myself took this cruise today. We had a very nice, relaxing time. The captain was very friendly and personable. We did not have reservations, as we first tried to take the cruise on the Chautauqua Belle, but left after a very bad experience. We had no problem getting tickets and the seating was nice and...

We were in Jamestown for the Lucy Festival on August 4, 2013 and paid for a Sunday 2 hour brunch cruise on the Summer Wind. The Captain was great. The cruise was advertised for 2 hours, but only went out on the lake for an hour and a half. It was advertised as a Brunch, and we got served lasagna,... More

Excellent cruise from Celeron, NY to the Chautauqua Amphitheater! The staff was super friendly and the buffet was surprisingly excellent. We left around 5 for the 2 hr. ride to the concert with beautiful scenery en route. If there was one drawback, it would be the length of the entire event. Leaving at 5 pm, cruising for 2 hrs., waiting... More
