We went out on a Saturday afternoon cruise around the lake. The driver Chad was very knowledgeable, personable and interesting. A fun way to get to know some history and enjoy the lake.

Go to their website it's on their home page under the descriptions of the various cruises. $10/kid or $30-45 adults depending on the cruise I think.
