A great Cruise , and a reasonable price, and the owner tell you all about the surrounding area that you'll cruise through ! They have great food too; but I'd call ahead to reserve a spot on the boat, because it sells out most trips !

I would have given this cruise 5 stars, however, this is the reason I didn’t. I booked the tickets online for myself, wife, our two kids and mother in law. When we arrived at the boat and I provided my name, I was told that since I booked online, that those prices were cheaper through that “booking agency” than the actual prices. As a result I had to pay an additional $10 for this increase. I feel since I already paid online that should have taken care of things. I’ve never had this happen for any excursion, hotel, flight, etc. Other than that, the ride was enjoyable and saw a lot of the great camps on the lake.

What a wonderful trip! The cruise goes all around Raquette Lake, so you see places you would never see otherwise. The captain is very skilled and personable, and provides just the right amount of narrative. There are drinks and snacks available, so the whole experience is relaxing and enjoyable.

Any time we come to the area we always take a cruise. We usually bring our kids or Grandkids. Captain Dean and, his wife Donna, Always show you a great time. This time it was just a scenic cruise on Columbus Day weekend. However, if you can get a reservation for a dinner cruise, you WON'T be disappointed... My son is actually considering a wedding here.. How unique is that....

My family and I took the early afternoon scenic cruise on September 14th. It was a lovely, informative, and enjoyable cruse. The boat is in beautiful condition, (I’ve owned boats and have an idea of what that entails!) and everyone was accommodating, friendly, and professional. I didn’t realize that the “dining” option also includes lunch, or I would have booked the lunch cruise, which ends in time to see the very nearby Sagamore on its fall tour schedule. After seeing some of the Adirondack “Great Camps” from the water, it would have been wonderful to tour the inside of one. The scenic cruise offers a full bar and several snacks at extra cost.
