Excellent narrative of the history timeline of the development of the Fulton Chain of Lakes and the significant landowners and developers. Also a very pretty grouping of lakes to travel through at a leisurely pace. It was a very relaxing boat excursion.

Had a great 2 hour cruise on the Fulton chain of lakes. Our captain was informative about the lakes with some enjoyable anecdotes. The boat is clean and there are refreshments. Would certainly take another cruise.
