We went in early October. Wind was a little cold and it was overcast, but it was a very nice tour. The captain also gave the information over the loud speaker during the tour> he was nice and knew his stuff.

We were invited on the Escapade for a lunch tour. The food was great and the boat trip was relaxing and fun with the anniversary couple. We had all ages aboard. The younger ones enjoyed the 2nd story deck.

Loved this one hour tour! The captain shared history, pointed out natural landmarks, and shared info about some of the beautiful homes. He even sang to us and he has a beautiful voice. Price is right, too.

Husband took an hour afternoon cruise and said it was fine once they got away from the dock (the gnats were a bit much) He recommends taking a jacket with you as the lake is cooler then the shore
