“Great way to see the lake!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Both the Mohican and the Sacrament are an excellent way to see the lake, including its more secluded areas.

“A must when you visit Lake George!!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Our first trip to LG in 2012 was amazing! And the most memorable thing about it was riding the Minnie Ha Ha! My daughters loved riding on the top deck and they especially loves the steamboat music that was played as we waited to board the boat! Fantastic views and the crew talk about everything we see! We boarded the first trip of the day (10:00am) and it was not crowed at all which I loved! A definite must when you visit this fantastic village!!

“Great Island Explorer cruise”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

I went on the island explorer cruise with friends and had a great time. Lake George is gorgeous and the narrator on the cruise was full of information. The boat was clean and easy to navigate, with a snack bar and full bar. The island explorer cruise was 2.5 hours long, and we loved the whole thing.

“Great Time”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We did the dinner cruise. Views were great, as they always are on Lake George. We had our 14 month old with us and were a bit worried about how she would handle things. Service left a lot to be desired. Every table around us was served drinks before our waitress even acknowledged us. My husband had to go and hunt down a high chair for our daughter. The rest of the cruise more than made up for this, however. Food was better than I expected, although the buffet was fairly small. The chicken was moist and tasty. There was also bread, salad, cold salads, pasta, potatoes, beans and carved meat. The chocolate cake they served for dessert was absolutely delicious. The lemonade was also really good. The music was fun and they kept the crowd going. My 14 month old enjoyed dancing too. I would definitely do it again, despite the hiccup with service. If you're looking to learn about the lake, this is not the cruise for you. Take one of the day sailings instead on the Minne-Haa-Haa. This is more of a party atmosphere. There were plenty of kids, and they all seemed to be really enjoying themselves.
