Lady of lake

Great way to see the lake. You can be indoors or out. Crew gives a good editorial of the lake. It is a long ride so you might want to take cards or something.

We rode on the Lady Express, the boat used during the off season, and it made a few stops on the way to Stehekin, a remote village, where we had an hour stop. It was very interesting to see locals boarding at some of the stops in between and the barges that bring supplies to Stehekin. The crew were very... More

We enjoyed so many things during our first-ever visit to Lake Chelan, but the Lady of the Lake boat tour topped them all. We opted for the slower (and thus longer) boat journey aboard the beautiful Lady of the Lake II. The boat left port in Chelan at 8:30 a.m. There was plenty of room aboard the nicely maintained craft,... More

Treat yourself to a true slice of Northwest magic by riding the iconic Lady up to Stehekin, WA. How many other towns in the lower 48 states can only be reached by boat, float plane or hiking? The Lady herself offers indoor and outdoor seating and you can't beat the view! This trip has been recommended by National Geographic and... More

We really enjoyed our trip aboard the Lady of the Lake II. The scenery is magnificent. The ride to Stehekin takes around 4 hours. I would definitely spend the night in Stehekin and not do the return to Chelan on the same day. The boat only remains in Stehekin for one-and-a-half hours and there is not enough time to explore.

We took the fast boat to Stehekin and had a wonderful time. It's 2.5 hours but it goes by too fast. Boat was clean, staff friendly and they even provided perfect weather. How thoughtful.

I just read "Gingerbread's" review (below) about the short amount of time you get on shore when taking the one day trip. We took the express, and had 1 hour at the destination with 5 hours of sailing round trip. Total cost for two was $162. As Gingerbread suggested, stay at least one night. The staff on board was friendly... More

Thank you for sharing your traveling tips. If you were charged for parking and only took a day trip with the one hour layover give us a call! Parking charges of $7 per night only apply to those needing overnight parking. Also, a round trip on the Lady Express is $61 per person for a total of $122 for 2,... More

First, I don't want to write a poor review about the employees/owners of Lady of the Lake. It is a fine enough boat, and the people are pleasant. But here's the math: You are on the boat for FOUR HOURS each way. That's eight hours in travel to spend a whopping 90 min. (even less) at your destination (Stehekin). Stehekin... More
