The Reelfoot Visitor Center offer's two lengths of pontoon cruises. There are morning and sunset cruises that are 3 hours long, and two afternoon cruises that are 1.5 hours each. We chose one of the afternoon cruises. It has been hot this summer, but there was actually a decent breeze blowing. Faith, our tour guide was funny, and absolutely full of knowledge about the lake. This was surprising, since this was her first year. Kudos, Faith! The 1.5 hour tour takes you part way around the lake, then backtracks. We didn't see any eagles, but plenty of heron, egrets, and osprey. The only problem with our cruise was no fault of Faith's, so I will certainly not count off for it. The rest of our passengers were absolute zombies. Faith worked so hard to get participation from the other passengers, but it just didn't happen.
We had a great time. I think next time we will take the morning cruise. We will make sure to take seat cushions though. The seats are hard metal chairs. They were bad enough for 1.5 hours. I can't imagine 3 hours without any cushion for my tush.
