“Interesting scenery.”

The Lady of the Lake has more room but you will see the same scenery in half the time by taking the Lady Express. We went up on the Lady of the Lake II and back down on the Lady Express and we enjoyed the shorter trip much more.

Great boat trip we preferred the Lady Express for the shorter trip. Great view of the area. A mystery see trip.

Good view on both sides of the boat and well worth the price. Nice friendly personal. Snacks available on board. Check out the waterfall when you get to Stehekin. 52 mile boat trip.

The view during the boat ride was really beautiful but not worth the time, specially the non-express boat was more painful ride. Other than the boat ride, there is almost nothing in Stehekin, specially for family with kids. You may want to spend some time if you are into hiking though.

Another big pain while in Stehekin is extremely limited transportation options. You are stuck with one bus service to take you for a tour within around an hour covering 3-4 points. Overall it was waste of time in Stehekin waiting for the transportation option for 4 hours and had bus trip for an hour.

We took a day trip on Lady of the Lake II (the larger boat) recently in May. You have a choice of starting out in the town of Chelan or at Field's Point. We boarded in town, but next time, we'll probably get on a Field's Point, and save an hour of boat ride each direction. Of course you get better seat selection if you get on early, so that may be a reason to get on early.

The ship has two decks, and supposedly seats 280 people or so? I can't imagine that many people packed onto that boat. Downstairs is enclosed, and reasonably comfortable. Upstairs is just single chairs. It probably won't be comfortable to sit in those for 4 hours.

The trip starts out fairly ordinary, going through the widest part of the lake, at 2 miles wide. But it gets narrower, and scenery gets better and better. In May, there's still some snow on the peaks, and that makes it quite pretty.

Best part of trip is when we get to Stehekin, and you disembark for 1.5 hours. It's way too short! You barely have enough time to have a quick lunch and walk around a bit. It's such a lovely location! When weather is nice, it's simply beauty beyond words. It was a bit sad to leave.

The lake itself is like a fjord cruise. Of course fjords empty into ocean, while this is a lake. But both are carved by glaciers, and quite pretty. It's an all-day ride, but quite an enjoyable trip.
