“Take a Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We did the Belle of the Ozarks cruise, and they were very friendly and shared some fun facts about the area. Not a very big lake, but clean and family friendly. Small beach area. Campsites available.

Relaxing and informative deckboat ride around the lake. You don't have to sit all the time as you are free to roam around the deck. Highly recommend.

“Not a "must do" attraction...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

........as stated in one of the local magazines.....especially for the price of 22. It was billed as a narrative boat ride. You had to be practically next to her to hear her; she really needs a PA system. But even to qualify as "narrative", which seems to have accounted for some of the cost, she was speaking for less than 10% of the time....

If all you are looking for is a slow, relaxing boat ride, and don't mind the high price, then this might be for you; This is a really pretty area...For us, we wish we had looked around for a better and more reasonably priced boat ride....We would not do this again.

If you take small children, the railing is open on the bottom and not closed; be prepared to hang on tightly to your small kids the whole time...

“A Boat Ride”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

This was a nice relaxing boat ride. The cost of 22 dollars was a bit expensive for the time on the boat and make sure you have cash as they do not take credit cards. The Captains were friendly but the gave you a liberal political speech along the way.
