Purchased 7 tickets for the 4th of July. The boat ended up having mechanical issues so our ride was cancelled. As of today, August 29th- still waiting on a refund of over $100. Have called several times and left messages and they have yet to return a single call. If you want to throw your hard earned money down the drain buy tickets to ride this boat

We tried multiple times to take the boat ride before finally getting an opportunity. They don't seem to follow the schedule they post on line. Generally there was no reason given and/or no one around the boat or in the office. When we finally got to go - it was noisy and smelly - especially on the lower deck. We didn't expect wakeboard speed, but considering the time spent we expected to see more of the lake. Thankfully we were with friends that made being there enjoyable.

Took this tour with friends who live nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed the 2+ hour tour. Ours went a little long due to strong headwinds, but the crew still completed the tour & they were friendly & helpful throughout the cruise. The cruise included a narrative of history & facts about the area. This was a good mix of live & recorded. The staff worked very hard to ensure that the audio level was perfect was everyone. After a dreary morning, the 1pm cruise lucked out & we had a breakthrough of sun & smooth waters! Highly recommend this for a lazy afternoon adventure.

Since childhood I have known about Lake Chautauqua, passed it several times in our way to Ohio. One day we met our friends there and took the steamboat ride. It was lots of fun and very informative about the area....Lots of history. Worth every minute. Try it, I believe you'll enjoy it.

We enjoyed a nice 2-hour River cruise this afternoon. It was great to learn the story of how the Belle was saved from the scrap yard. The only real issue we had was that they used the canned pre-recorded narration for big chunks of the cruise that actually took place miles away. Friendly attentive staff and a fun history lesson!
