Give the gift of family time in 2020
As you can guess our favorite time of year is anytime we can be out on the lake cruising, but a very close second is the holiday season. Both are special to us because we love being on the water, family time and family time on the water! If your favorite time of year is when you can be out on the water, why not give the gift of a boat cruise on Lake Geneva or plan your time on the water with family for Summer 2020!
Before you start planning your Summer 2020 or what cruises you’ll be gifting to friends and family, you’ll have to know the options. Most of the tours include a narrated history of the area and the houses:
• Geneva Bay Tour [1 hour]: Narrated tour of the east half of the lake.
• Full Lake Tour [2 hours]: Narrated tour of the full lake.
• US Mailboat Tour [2.5 hours]: The 100+ year tradition of mailboat jumpers delivery mail to lakeshore residents.
• Ice Cream Social [1.25 hours]: Narrated tour of about half of Lake Geneva with an ice cream sundae for each rider.
• Expanded Bay Tour [1.5 hours]: Narrated tour of about two-thirds of the lake.
• Sundowner Tour [1 hour]: Evening cruise of half the lake with a view of the sunset.
We also have some specialty cruises that would be perfect gift options. Our Black Point Estate and Boat Tour is three and a half hours that includes a narrated boat tour and a guided tour of the 1888 Estate. Black Point Estate is known for its beautiful gardens, the house that is still full of its original furnishings, and the massive bluff overlooking Lake Geneva (also the more than 100 stairs visitors have to walk to get from the boat pier to the estate tour).
Our Cocktail Cruises are two hours on most Thursday nights during the summer. Cocktail Cruises feature live music and a cash bar. Our meal tours last about two and a half hours, and include full meals with a narrated tour of the lake. Our luncheon, champagne brunch and jazz dinner cruises would make great gifts.
Does your family plan outings together in the summer? Have you ever thought about taking a boat cruise as a group? If there’s 10 or more of you, we offer group rates for most of our cruises, tour packages and group tour menus with local restaurants. Decide which tour you want to take and give us a call to see what type of rate options we have.
Is your family quite a bit larger or are you one of those families that likes to socialize when you all get together? Then a private charter would be perfect for your family reunion or outing. During a private cruise you get to pick your boat, your entertainment, your food and your route on the lake. It’s such a unique venue for a family event, everyone will want to make it a yearly tradition!
So now that you’ve picked out the cruise you want to give as a gift or you’ve decided to schedule your 2020 family time on the water – we can get you a gift certificate or help schedule your private cruise. Gift certificates can be bought for a specific dollar amount so the person can choose what cruise they want to take, or it can be bought for a specific tour. For both options, the date is left open so they can choose when they would like to enjoy their cruise.
