    This cruise around the lake was so beautiful and relaxing! They give you a little history and offer some refreshments. Me and my family had a great time!

    Had a great sunset cruise on the Safari Rose! The crew was great and provided great drinks, appetizers, commentary and blankets to enjoy the scenery. Kids enjoyed feeding Jonathan the seagull. Loved the unique boat – highly recommend this!
