Owner description: Get this straight: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake. Hop aboard a classic yacht for a cruise around the second deepest lake in Wisconsin (135 feet deep and 21 miles around) which is the focal point of a popular resort area also known as "the Newport of the West."

“Boat tour of the Lake”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Took the lake tour with Geneva Lake Cruise line. It takes about an hour and a half and takes you up one side of the lake, crosses halfway up, and returns down the other side. The guide/Captain is very informative and gives a continuous history of all the real estate around the lake. A really enjoyable afternoon trip.

“Scuba diving Geneva Lake”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

I have dove Geneva Lake about 12 times and it is a very nice clean lake. Always a good time. Being a big lake with a lot of big boats it does seem as though they really don't pay attention to the boating laws. you must really watch out for yourself. I always do look forward to going back.

Very informative boat trip around the perimeter of Lake Geneva with colorful trees and estate homes. Very interesting to learn the history behind these lovely homes.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Great place to chillout for a cruise or take a wander round the many shops and restaurants. If you're nearby, go spend a day there and soak up the architecture and sunshine. Plenty of water activities to do too although we just did a cruise and some shopping.

“Geneva Lake tour”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Went on this tour and the Captain of the boat we were on was quite informative. The tour we took went about halfway around the lake with a stopover to the Black Pointe Estate. There are many mansions along this lake. Our Captain told us about several of them and who owned them. He knew a lot about the lake people and the estates.
