Don't miss this one-hour boat ride on Lake Otsego on the sparkling clean Glimmerglass Queen. There are several tours per day from May to October.

This was another diversion suitable for a four year old. Our very active grandson was entranced by the ride, which was relaxing for his grandparents. The tour information is recorded, with no live tour guide, but the bartender (yes, there is a bar on board)...More

Dear GG Boat tours, We stopped by two years ago while staying at the Lake Front Hotel. Someone was having a baby and so we didn't get the chance to ride. Hope the skipper will be available between July 29 and August 5th this year as we look forward to our return. Love the area. Cliff
