Welcome from Old Forge Lake Cruises!

To our dear friends and patrons,

2020 will be my final season at Old Forge Lake Cruises, as I am retiring.

I would like to thank all of my friends who have worked with me over the years. Many thanks to Arline, Madelyn, Mara, Darby, Mike, Bob, Sandy, Denise, Alice, Jim, Liam, Chuck, Chuck, George, Ray, Gloria, Nikos, Courtney, Louie, Mike, Jane, Kathy, Steve, Gary, Danny, Andy, Henry, Sam, Kaydden, Linda, Lindsay, Lance, Jessica, Peg, Mary, Mary, Matt, Sarah, Michelle, Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, and of course, Bob!

Join us!  Cruise the lakes again before Columbus Day, October 12, 2020. Over 250,000 guests have graced our decks at Old Forge Lake Cruises.  We would love to see you, your family, your relatives, your friends, your neighbors and, indeed, anyone willing to be seen with you on the Clearwater!

Our business is strong and our health is excellent. We are exiting at this high point to pursue new opportunities. The business is for sale and we are hopeful someone new will continue the Old Forge Lake Cruises tradition.

I have thoroughly enjoyed operating this business. From our excellent feedback, I know that you have loved it, too. It has been my mission to study and share our history in an interesting, fun, and safe way. I will miss being out on the water, I will miss the Clearwater, I will miss my co-workers, I will miss Old Forge, but I will miss you, our guests, most of all!  Thank you for sharing your fun times with me, my family, and my team!

See you on the water in 2020!!

Captain Paul and Family
