“Nice Boat Excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

There are two boats, one slow that makes more stops and one faster. The destination is Stehekin at the upper end of the 55 mile long lake. We opted for the faster trip and it was a thoroughly enjoyable way to see Lake Chelan and it's surrounding countryside. There is comfortable seating and plenty of photo opportunities. The skipper offers interesting commentary along the way. There is a one hour turnaround time for the return trip, and travelers have the option of taking the slower boat back later or taking a float plane.

“Interesting scenery.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

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.

“Wonderful sites on the boat tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

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.

“Not worth the money and time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

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.
