this is a fantastic way to relax and enjoy the scenery and the lakes. It's a 2 hour cruise and beautiful from the top deck. We went on a very warm day but the breeze kept us quite cool. It's a slow ride narrated by the captain. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip!

Excellent tour! We went from Old Forge pond to 4th lake and return -it was a perfect day - mostly sunny but not too hot. Captain Paul was very informative I would definitely do this cruise again

We took the cruise of the Fulton chain of lakes on a warm morning. The guided narration was filled with local historical knowledge, as others have stated. Further, the captain allowed my nine year old to pilot the boat and granted her a certificate to take home! Take a sweater as the winds are refreshing but brisk.

Enjoy nature? Want to relax? Than you're in the right place! The ride is inexpensive and close to other attractions, so if you're in the area don't miss out. Don't forget to bring a camera as well, beautiful scenery.

Great way to see first thru fourth lake in the Adirondack mountains. The boat is large enough to accommodate a lot of people. They serve refreshments thru the narrated tour.

We stumbled across the Lake Cruise and at the last minuet jumped on board. We sat up top on a picture perfect day. The captain pulled us out and started with the history and fun facts about the chain of lakes. Smooth ride, great views. I recommend it, it is well worth the money. Only down side is what they...

So relaxing! We enjoyed every minute of the boat ride and loved the channels in between the lakes. Really fun. There was a little glich with our reservation and our subway lunch was not there waiting for us. No big deal. It was waiting for us when we disembarked and took it down to the park in Inlet to enjoy.... More

This is the 2nd time we've taken this ride. It's a nice way to get a different perspective on the area. Be sure to bring a light jacket in the spring or fall even if the day seems fairly warm so you can remain comfortably outside for the best views.
