"My family loved this cruise"
My family loved this cruise around the lake aboard this beautiful boat... It was comfortable, restrooms were clean and always available, the seating was luxurious and abundant and you had the freedom to explore -my 6yo boys loved finding all the nooks and crannies. The food was wonderful and available the whole cruise, the captain and crew were highly informed and gave an interesting talk of the statistics and history of the lake, the boat and emerald bay, the island and the inhabitants of the region. Safety was paramount for these friendly informative professionals.
Tip: Bring a camera, appropriate gear for the weather and an appetite for the food and adventure.
