The owners are very knowledgable of Lake Jocassee. You will enjoy your cruise tour and learn a lot. Your cruise could include swimming, waterfalls, wild flowers, wildlife, history of the lake. Many choices available, look them up on the net for specifics of cruises offered. We are going again in three weeks on a moonlight tour, can't wait.

I have done 3 different tours with this group. Each has been during different seasons, and each was very unique and enjoyable. This tour group really knows their stuff, and listens to what you are interested in. I am looking forward to another tour soon!

Jocassee has always been one of my favorite places, but I never had the opportunity to really explore the lovely hidden coves and waterfalls before. It was a joy to do so with someone so knowledgeable and who so loves the wonders of our beautiful area!

We've been on two tours -- one a moonrise tour; the other to waterfalls. Both were terrific. Kay was our skipper; she's knowledgeable and fun to be with. We'll be going back again before long.

I could not imagine a better day on the lake. My husband and I have lived in the area out entire lives, but had never been to to Jocassee before today. Our three girls (11, 8, & 6) also had a fantastic time. Kay and brooks were a wealth of information and obviously love what they do. Our tour included... More

This was my 2nd tour with Brook and Kay. They are very knowledgeable about this area and people who used to live in the town that was flooded to create the reservoir. We were on a "moon rise cruise", which is a nice concept, but this night the moon was mostly hidden behind clouds and didn't really become visible until... More

We chose the Full moon tour that starts at 6:30pm and takes you all around parts of the lake. The owners, Brooks and Kay Wade, know this place like the back of their hands. It is an old friend they visit each and everyday sharing with new friends they meet along the way. You don't feel you are on a... More

We took a 4 hour tour with Kay and it wwas amazing. She knows a lot about the lake and flowers and she will take you to the nicest spots. The lake is so beautiful, it is really worth it for a boat trip.
