About Our Cruises

At 3492 feet above sea level, Lake Glenville is the highest lake in the eastern United States. It is simply stunning and our cruises let you experience that beauty up close and personally aboard our luxury pontoon yacht that is unmatched for comfort and class on the lake. Take in the sights and see the hidden waterfalls that so many people miss when they tour the area because they can only be seen from the lake. Not only do our cruises impress and thrill our guests, but we pride ourselves on being the only fully licensed and insured boat cruise on Lake Glenville. Additionally, our cruises are also guided by Captain Mark Wise, a bonafide US-Coast Guard Licensed, Master Sea Captain.

  • 28ft Luxury Pontoon Yacht for up to 12 people (private cruises up to 14 passengers).
  • 25 miles of pristine shoreline with scenic waterfalls.
  • Relax! We do the driving and you enjoy the ride.

Safety First

The safety and comfort of our guests is paramount. We take great pride in providing a world-class cruise experience, where guests can sit back, relax, and enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that the boat is under full control of a true sea captain. Lake Glenville is a great place, but it can be busy at times and confusing to navigate. Having an experienced Captain at the helm really sets our guests at ease, even in busier waters.

  • Licensed Sea Captain
  • US Coast Guard Approved
  • Fully Insured with Commercial Maritime Charterboat Insurance
  • 40+ Years of Boating Experience
