This was a very pretty ride but it was a little boring. We didn't realize how very slow the boat would go. It would have been better for half the ride. View was gorgeous.

Book early and get on the upper level - they have a Bar onboard ( not sure about food or snacks ) the captain is very knowledgeable about the area and will let you take the wheel for pictures- well worth the time & $$...More

There is nothing fancy about this boat, but the ride provides a delightful time to just enjoy the lake, the sky, and the beautiful surroundings. We did not do a meal this time. We will happily return in the future when we drive to Canandaigua!

We had a very good experience on the Canandaigua Lady. The weather was perfect, the narrated tour informative and the staff engaged and attentive. It was very easy to buy tickets online and pick them up just before the tour began.

It could have been because we took the 1 1/2 hour cruise during the off-season, but it was pretty mediocre. Perhaps the team works hardier to please its guests during the Summer.. not sure, but overall, I was not impressed. We traveled at the end...More

You WILL NOT get a refund. You will get a rain check and if the price goes up YOU will have to pay the difference.
