Call May 26 through October 15 for reservations

Our two hour scenic boat cruise crosses three beautiful lakes: Blue Mountain, Eagle and Utowana. The Neenykin and Miss Manatee, along with the 40' Towahloondah perfectly complement the historical narrative spun by experienced guides. In the late 1800s, Blue Mountain Lake attracted the very wealthiest families in America as a great retreat; some of their great camps are still visible from the water.  Behind the scenes, the servants and lumberjacks of the area lead to many interesting stories that give this region its rich cultural heritage. Our tour features the camps, hotels, steamboats, workers, and players in the late 1800s. As the era draws to a close, we cover the last of the great camps and the whirlwind of typhus and bankruptcy that follows. As a new generation emerges, preservation and conservation in our times also play a part in the great Adirondack story. Between the beautiful scenery, fascinating history, and interesting tour guide, our historic boat cruise is one part of the Blue Mountain experience you don't want to miss.
