The boat was immaculate! The price was $16.50 cash per adult. The ride was exactly one hour. The tour gave an overview of area history and landmarks. Drinks were reasonable and snacks were available. Seating was ample. Definitely recommend for single, couples, or families!!

Very relaxing scenic one hour boat ride on beautiful Ostego Lake in Cooperstown NY. They have a bar if you want a drink and have snacks also.

This was a very relaxing and scenic ride. The pilot gave a short history of the lake and then you enjoyed the scenery. The ride lasted an hour and worth the price. The people running it were very friendly.

This is one of the very best must to do's in town. The lake never changes and you get a great sense of what it must have been like here hundreds of years ago. Excellent views and a great narration. Neat boat.
