We were on the luncheon cruise today, and while pleased with the food and service, we were very disappointed in the cruise itself. We spent a fair bit of time circling around, actually doing 360' turns. The cruise commentary was a poorly taped voice who tripped over his words, and the actual machine stopped working and they were not able... More

A nice and guided tour on the lake of Hamilton. The captain told us about Hamiltons history during the trip. I recommend it! Make sure you check the webpage or even email them (as I did) some days in advance to get the timetable and days they operate.

My husband and I went on this boat tour. The ride itself was very relaxing and peaceful. The only negative thing was the "tour" aspect of it was difficult to hear. The speaker system on the boat was very gravely and the engine of the boat was loud so it was almost impossible to hear when the captain would point... More

I had the opportunity with my family to go on this boat tour in Hamilton. This trip was about 50 minutes long. I thought that it could be long and boring trip for 50 minutes. But I was wrong. Captain Mark (captain of the boat) made this trip so interesting with the historical information about the city of Hamilton. Highly... More

This was such a great experience. Captain Mark was so much fun to listen to with all the interesting facts of the surrounding area. He's got a great sense of humour! My kids loved that they got a chance to "drive" the boat!!! I will definitely return!

Captain Mark was a riot! He kept our interest the entire time with interesting facts & funny stories. I have taken the trolley, & the large boat, but this tour was by far the best. You felt so close to the water & it was easy to see everything. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

This hour-long cruise around Hamilton Harbour was educational and entertaining. Captain Mark was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic host. It was a great value and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

1 hour tour of the harbor Guided by Captain Mark who was funny and engaging the entire time. Short historical facts made it very interesting. The weather was beautiful and the small 12 passenger boat made it very intimate. Would definitely recommend for tourists and locals alike to see the Harbour from a different point of view
