Travelers who wish to explore the length of Lake George can cruise the lake from stern to bow, or take specialty cruises that focus on the lake’s islands or history.

If you want to pair your sightseeing with a meal, many of the Lake George boat tours offer dinner cruises with a range of dining options and a full bar.
