Took a lunch cruise the day before the they closed for the season. Adequate buffet . had everything needed to get a good meal. Service was good. The boat ride was well verbalized by the boats crew. They give vets discounts.

We were here for a long weekend. The lake is beautiful and it's worth taking the ride. We were unsure if the food option was worthwhile but was glad we took it. It was a noon ride and with 2 hours to get back it made sense. I had low expectations on the meal but it was surprisingly good enough.... More

Viewing Lake George from the center is a great experience. Our family ventured on the steamboat Minne Ha Ha on a late summer Sunday. Arriving ten minutes early for our 12:30 reservation, we were alarmed that the boat was already standing room only. After posing for the photographers boarding group shot, we hurried along. There were no window seats, so... More

I short boat ride out on the lake. Good way to see the foliage. Narrated and interesting! 3 levels and can sit inside or out. Ok, in warm or cool weather.

We had a nice time on the Lac Du Saint Sacrement dinner cruise. The food was good and the ship was very smooth in the water. Service was good and My wife liked the souvenir photos. The only thing that could have made this trip better is if the cruise left earlier because by the time we got into mid... More

We took the 2 1/2 tour of Lake George on one of their ships. It was very well done. There was narration as the boat circled the lake which was beautiful. We were told many interesting facts and may sites with their history. They had a gift shop and snack counter.

Love, love, love these boats! Especially the minne ha ha, a paddle wheel ship with a calliope. Professional pictures taken prior to boarding for sale at your departure. Sit inside or outside on top deck, but beware when that calliope starts playing!

We joined friends this past weekend for a lunch cruise on Lake George on the Lac du Saint-Sacrement Boat. We were early, so we did not have to stand in line too long for our tickets. We had to pay by credit card when we made the reservation, so it was a surprise when we realized that the line was... More

I took the 2:30 PM narrated boat tour on Lac du Sacrament boat. The narration was wonderful. We were taken close to the shore and by islands. It was very interesting, and we saw spectacular scenery. It was a nice way to see the lake.

On Saturday, October 15, 2016 the tour boat was fully booked for a wedding and there was no other boat tour from this company available for the rest of the day. Went to the other boat company and had a very nice tour. Recommend in the peak of foliage season during such nice weather days they should run two boats.
