Cruise Ships

There is no more iconic attraction in Lake George than the cruise ships that sail the waters. A ride on one of these majestic vessels is a great way to experience the region's fall foliage.

Lake George Steamboat Company

Take a 1-hour cruise on the Lake George Steamboat Company's famous Minne-Ha-Ha, or a Sunday champagne and brunch cruise on the Lac du Saint Sacrement. Join Lake George Shoreline Cruises for a happy hour sightseeing cruise on the beautiful Horicon or a luxurious dinner cruise on the famed Adirondac.

Boat or Kayak Rentals

Visitors to the Lake George Area can rent either a boat or a kayak for a more intimate fall foliage experience on the water. Boat rental marinas rent boats through Columbus Day weekend, offering the change for you and your family to cruise the foliage-studded shorelines of Lake George. Another great way to see striking foliage from the water is a kayak rental through Lake George Kayak Company.

Waterfront Restaurants

One of the more relaxing ways to get great views of Adirondack fall foliage is from a table at a waterfront restaurant. Several restaurants offer lakeside tables with absolutely stunning views of the vibrant colors. There's no more beautiful places to have lunch!

Whitewater Rafting

If you'd rather have a bit of action while you're checking out the fall foliage, link up with a rafting company. Visitors can explore either the mighty Hudson River or the more quiet Sacandaga River. Many rafting companies are open through at least Columbus Day, so give one a call and plan out your adventure!
