Our wine group did an evening tour on the boat. We had to pre -order our choice of menu which kind of scared us but the food was good. Everything was done perfectly. for such a small kitchen the staff did a fabulous job. Scenery was excellent. Beautiful homes along the shore. Light show was interesting Fun time.

Wonderful day.Food was excellent. Service was great. We were on the lunch cruise. It was the perfect amount of time to eat and take in the sights. FYI.....Tips are charged directly on the bill when drinks are order. I would recommend the cruise.A must do in Magog.

Had a nice glass of sparkling wine which was room temperature. Ordered second glass and it was even better chilled. Bread came with your choice of butter, teapenade or sundried tomatoes. Then had the coconut cream, lemongrass and smoked salmon soup which was very savory. For main course, had the deer with browned butter mashed potatoes and roast veggies. Everything... More

We took the 2 hour 3:00 to 5:00 pm, non meal cruise. The boat is finished very fine inside with very comfortable seating consisting of booths and tables. It looks like a fine dining restaurant inside. This was a non meal cruise but they came by with snack menus and a drink list and served you at your table. You... More

Nice tour of the lake with a complimentary cocktail. Would have liked a little bit more information about the surroundings as it is not a commented trip. It was nice and quiet, beautiful scenery and great cruise on Memphremagog.

I enjoyed it overall, the boat was very comfortable and a smooth ride. Very easy to walk around on the decks. My only negative thing to say is with a tourist attraction so close to the States and other English speaking people , speaking in both languages would be nice, other wise the talk before taking the cruise is boring....

Our family enjoyed this quiet outing. We munched on a plate of nachos and cheese. My husband liked the bloody Caesars It was a nice way to finish off the day after biking and exploring Magog.

I think a dinner cruise would have been more appropriate for a family with children, for there is not many sites of interest for the children - no lighthouses to see or interesting landforms. It's mostly a view of prominent homes. A two hour ride is too long for young children. There was two brief recorded commentaries giving some information... More
