Overview

For the True Lake Geneva Experience, you have to get on the water! Beautiful estates, mansions and natural scenery that only be viewed from the lake unfold through a descriptive and insightful narrated tour or provide the backdrop for an unforgettable party or wedding celebration. With 8 boats that hold from 2 to 225, Lake Geneva Cruise Line is one of the areas premier attractions - including the World Famous Mailboat Tour. As seen on the Travel Channel, CBS News, and the Today Show; it is the only marine mail delivery of its type in the nation as the mailperson leaps onto the pier, places the mail in the mailbox and jumps back aboard the boat. The catch is - THE BOAT NEVER STOPS MOVING!

We took the cruise as part of a trip to the Black Point Estate and Gardens. We learned a lot about the Lake Geneva area on our pleasant trip around the lake before getting to the house.

There were hardly any lights to see and it was supposed to be an adult cruise, but the music and jokes were not the best.

The boat itself was great and I have no complaints. I am, however, very disappointed with the light displays for the Santa Cruise. Perhaps the positive reviews I read prior to my cruise made me think the majority of the shoreline would be lit with...More

My daughter and her three children (18,20,22) and I were looking forward to a kind of funky outing. It was a great time. Hosts were delightful. Restaurant is a good spot to spend time either before or after trip.

It is the best way to see how beautiful the lake is in winter. Many children were on the cruise and were really excited to see Santa's lake cottage hideaway....we will take our grandchildren next year.

The evening cruise was very beautiful with the lights and the captain telling jokes. The boat had a full bar to relax and enjoy the night.

There are not different class seats. All seating is open and is first come first serve. Some of our boats are open aired and some are enclosed, depending on the cruise.
