“Serene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

The boating experience here seems very 'touristy' but one should go for it anyhow. You can take either the paddle boast of the one with oars and a boat dude (the guy who plows the oars).

I would suggest the paddle boat - if you're up for it.

“Green Emerald nestled in Hills!”

Enjoy rowing or better still, Yachting. Yachts are available at the Boathouse Club. Avoid garish paddle boats.
