The boat was immaculate! The price was $16.50 cash per adult. The ride was exactly one hour. The tour gave an overview of area history and landmarks. Drinks were reasonable and snacks were available. Seating was ample. Definitely recommend for single, couples, or families!!

This was a very relaxing and scenic ride. The pilot gave a short history of the lake and then you enjoyed the scenery. The ride lasted an hour and worth the price. The people running it were very friendly.

This was our second trip on this boat & it’s so relaxing & beautiful. The only issue I have is that you have to buy your tickets 15 minutes before thr tour. Only groups of 20 or more can make reservations. The crew was friendly....More

Took the one hour tour. Nothing amazing but if you love being on the water on a beautiful day this is a nice way to do it. Top deck is open air and bottom deck is closed and contains the bar. Sit back and enjoy...More

This is one of the very best must to do's in town. The lake never changes and you get a great sense of what it must have been like here hundreds of years ago. Excellent views and a great narration. Neat boat.

I highly recommend this tour! LOVED the tower in the lake, and learning the histology of it - and everything else in this town so RICH in American history! The lake is just so lovely, formed from a glacier - and the views are beautiful....More
