If you're visiting Old Forge, you've got to take a scenic cruise on this absolutely wonderful tour boat. The sights are stunning, and the knowledgeable Captain provides a truly interesting narrative about the fascinating history of the lake area.

Our family toured the Lakes on Sunday, June 10th. The cruise cost was $62 and I feel it was well worth it. The cruise is narrated and the boat all the needs for guests. It has a bathroom, a snack bar with adult drinks if...More

I enjoyed the cruise, worth the money. I will do it every time I go to the adirondacks.i also appreciate that it was open to visitors because everything else out there is still closed until end of June.

Mid-week cruise in September on a spectacular fall day. Very entertaining, our guide was very knowledgeable. Two hour cruise went by all too quickly. Do yourself a favor and take this cruise. You'll have lots of great memories, and bring your camera, too!

On our recent visit to old forge we took a cruise on the Fulton chain of lakes. We had done this cruise before several years ago. The crew was very informative and it was a beautiful day to be out on the lake.

We had a great time on the lake cruise, but the fall foliage no where to be found. Not the fault of the cruise, just Mother nature. Worth the time, just make sure to make reservations. Boat books up quickly.
