Classic Boat Tour on Lake Placid

Wooden Boat on Lake Placid. Wooden boat interior

What’s the best way to take in the natural beauty and historical charm of Lake Placid? On the water by wooden boat!

Book a one-hour scenic daytime tour on a privately owned 30-foot Hacker-Craft with your family and friends. “Longhorn” is a classic mahogany wooden hull, adorned with plush green seating for up to 8 passengers. Your stunning cruise, operated by an experienced NYS (New York State) certified captain, begins from a private Adirondack boathouse on Lake Placid. The captain has spent over 50 years on the lake and will provide you both historical and fun stories throughout your tour. Capture the beauty of the surrounding mountains and local wildlife while admiring 200+ private Adirondack homes – referred to as “Camps” – many of which have been owned for generations by the same family.
