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.

We had a very enjoyable ride on Lake Placid with this company. The weather was perfect and the water was like a mirror. It is only an hour long and the tour touches on all the "cottages" that line the lake. Our guide was very funny and knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend this tour to spend a lazy...

We wanted to see this lake and learn about it's history. This was a good way to do so. The one hour cruise was on a pontoon boat that went around the lake. Our captain and guide gave good information abut the lake. The area caters to the rich as the mansions along the shore attested too. This was a... More

Great tour of Lake Placid. Our tour guide was interesting, knowledgeable and informative. The lake, mountain views and lakeside homes were beautiful. This is a must do in the area.

We loved our cruise! For $16 you can beat it! Lots of beautiful "camps" and breaking views of the mountains all around you! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made our tour even better!

We took the hour long boat cruise on Lake Placid. Our guide was a local student who was a resident of the area. He was very knowledgeable. There is also a coupon on the maps of the area for $1 discount.

Nice boat with a very good Captain that really knew the lake and it's fine points. The lake and the surrounding area is just fantastic. Don't know if there would be a better way to learn about the lake.

For $16 you get a beautiful 90 minute tour of Lake Placid on a large pontoon boat. The lake and Whiteface are so beautiful and it's a treat to see some of the camps, not to mention the beautiful wooden boats that are on the lake.

The one hour scenic boat tour of Lake Placid was very enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking and it was very interesting to hear the history of many of the "camps" along the lake. A great activity for rain or shine. They only accepted debit or credit for the admission fee--no cash. Our captain/tour guide was very knowledgeable with a great... More
