Overview

Wilderness beauty. Adirondack history. Serenity. Cruise the pristine waters of Lake Placid in one of our enclosed pontoon boats. The hour-long, narrated tour travels 16 miles on one of the world's most beautiful lakes. See and hear about the stately manors situated along the shore, Adirondack wildlife, and Whiteface Mountain, site of the alpine events during the 1980 Winter Olympic Games. A Lake Placid boat tour is a must for all visitors to the Adirondacks. Rain or shine, it is truly a delightful experience.

The one hour boat tour is excellent. The capt. is very knowledgeable about the lake and the camps around the lake. It was enjoyable to learn about the various camps on the lake. It was very worth while.

Well worth the fee for this tour. I will be happy to take that tour again next time we go there with friends. It is an hour guided tour on pontoon boats. The captain was a wealth of information about all the camps and islands.

Great way to spend an hour on this beautiful lake. Aaron was a great guide and shared very interesting stories about the history both past and current. Wish it had been a bit longer because it was so beautiful out on the water.

Nice little cruise around lake with a personable story telling captain. Not too expensive for entertainment on a sunny warm day.

The boat could likely take twenty but I would reserve ahead so they can utilize both boats that they have for other tourists.
