“Excellent dinner cruise”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The buffet was good, the service was excellent, and the tour of Lake George was fantastic. We had perfect weather for an evening cruise and were able to see a large portion of Lake George.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We took the 1 hour cruise on the Minnie Ha Ha. This was the perfect amount of time having young children with us. The captain was very funny and entertaining and mixed historical facts with great humor mixed in. It was a great and very scenic trip and we enjoyed every minute.

“Discovery Tour of Lake George”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The smell of breakfast waiting on the boat tantalizes you as you wait in line to board the Mohican. Some folks went below to enjoy a leisurely breakfast while enjoying the sights through large windows and listening to narration by the captain. Others stayed on deck to enjoy the morning air. There was plentiful seating the day we rode the boat, leaving people room to walk about and take pictures as the captain pointed out an eagle, an eagle's nest and many other things of interest as we made our way up the lake. The snack bar has lunch foods and snacks available for purchase. This is nice, especially due to the length of this particular cruise. It was a relaxing, enjoyable way to spend a day. I would recommend this specific tour to adults or older children due to the length of the cruise. However, this organization offers many other tours, of differing lengths, that families with younger children would enjoy. One of their boats is a paddle wheeler with a calliope aboard, how fun!

“Pleasant way to see Lake George”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We took the Discovery cruise, which is described as four and a half hours long, but actually took a full five hours. The Mohican was used for this, and the 100+ year old vessel was in good shape and appeared to be well maintained.

Lake George is truly beautiful, and we enjoyed the cruise. In addition to the standard items of interest pointed out by the crew, we saw two bald eagles.

Food is available, and though it wasn't anything special, the items we got were fine for the situation. The website says that no outside food is allowed although I don't think there was any enforcement of this restriction.

In retrospect, I think we might have been satisfied with one of the shorter cruises. Five hours on the boat turned out to be a little more than enough for us. This is not a criticism of the crew or boat or lake or anything; we just got fidgety after 3-4 hours. So I suggest that you consider carefully if you really want the long Discovery cruise.

Tip for handicapped guests: There is limited handicapped parking right next to the ticket office. You can also park across the street, and it's not that far. But neither is free.
