Boat cruises are an essential part of the Lake George Area’s fabric. Ships have been navigating these pristine waters for almost as long as people have been visiting the Lake George Area. A cruise on Lake George is a must-do activity for our new visitors, and a yearly experience to revisit for returning guests. Discover the magic of Lake George.

Lake George is the crown jewel of Adirondack waters, and a ride on a boat cruise is the most cherished way to take in all 32-miles of the lake. Before roadways were developed, cruise ships served as crucial transportation to distant towns for the area’s residents and visitors. As time passed, Lake George cruise ship companies began to focus their trips on sightseeing which quickly became one of the regions top attractions. 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. Lunch, brunch, and dinner cruises sail the lake daily in the summer, providing delectable foods such as Macaroni & Cheese or Prime Rib. Fireworks displays are always bursting in the nights skies of Lake George, and watching the show is from the deck of a cruise ship has become one of the favorite activities for couples visiting the area. Fireworks cruises leave the dock most Thursday evenings in July and August, and some even offer dinner.

Lovebirds seeking to tie the knot on the majestic waters of Lake George can book cruise ships for their wedding, creating a unique memory for their special day. To truly see the full breadth of Lake George, you need to experience it from the deck of a boat cruise.
