This is a nice relaxing 50 minute ride. The weather was beautiful. The captain and his mate were informative on the history of the lake. Not a whole lot to see on the trip as far as buildings/cottages but the scenery is beautiful.

The 50 minute Cruise was ok. The "highlight" of the trip appeared to be the two salt factories. The captain and his crewman spent a good deal of time just talking to each other. The crew member had little personality and seemed to just run...More

It was $16.00 per person, but things change. You might want to look them up on the net, or give them a call. I googled Stroller IV, and got their web page. The dinner cruise was more, but we didn't do that.
