Lake Placid Marina and Boat Tours

Lake Placid, NY, USA
About Lake Placid Marina and Boat Tours
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 ride was pleasant although rather chilly. If you are going, be aware that it can seem cooler and more windy in the boat than on shore. As the boat makes the circle of the lake, it travels in a clockwise direction. If you are seated on the ‘wrong’ side of the boat, you
