Captain Hal and First Mate Jack provided a fabulous cruise on Saratoga Lake. Their replica fantail launch was elegant, charming, and comfortable. Historic information and points of interest as well as great stories were part of this very special experience. We will definitely sail with them again and again.
I have now taken two cruises and plan a couple more before their season ends. The captains are all extremely knowledgeable about the history of the lake and Fish Creek. I am a native Saratogian and although I have been to Fit Creek I have never traveled on the creek. It is a beautiful cruise. Lots of wildlife and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. The boat is very comfortable. I did this cruise solo but within a few minutes all of us on the cruise were getting to know each other. I plan to repeat this cruise when the trees have turned into their fall colors. I have taken the lake cruise and learned much more of the history of Saratoga Lake. I highly recommend this company. What a wonderful new addition to Saratoga.

My wife and I chose to take one of Adirondack Cruise and Charter Co.'s dinner cruises on Saratoga Lake. The weather had us a bit worried because it looked like a storm was going to pass through and the wind stirred up a lot of waves. I expected the cruise to be bumpy as a result, but the boat handled the conditions surprisingly well and smoothly. Thankfully, the ominous skies cleared and no rain came. If it had, however, we were glad to see the boat was fully covered overhead and had rain flaps surrounding the sides to protect us from getting wet and having too much wind coming through the boat. Our dinner began being served soon after leaving the dock, starting with salad, and we enjoyed having the option of shrimp or steak for our main course: Both were very good. The side dishes were served family style which helped spark conversations and connect with the other people we were joined with for dinner; and the selection of desserts-served with coffee-were perfectly made and delicious. Captain Hal was very knowledgeable of Saratoga Lake history which added to the quality of the entire, relaxing experience as well. All in all, it was a great time that'd we'd definitely take part in again!
