Welcome from Old Forge Lake Cruises!

To our dear friends and patrons,

I’m sorry to announce that Old Forge Lake Cruises will not be opening this season.  Based on current information, it appears that the COVID-19 virus will remain virulent through the summer and into the fall. I am concerned for the well-being of my co-workers and my neighbors. I feel that operating normally does not serve the community well as this would potentially draw those carrying the virus to the area and serve as a vector for its spread.  We are an older community that is far from hospital care and I think being open would recklessly endanger lives in our community.

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!

Over 250,000 guests have graced our decks at Old Forge Lake Cruises.  We thank all of our friends. We would love to hear from you, your family, your relatives, your friends, and your neighbors. drop us a line at [email protected]

Our health is still excellent. The business is for sale and we are hopeful someone new will continue the Old Forge Lake Cruises tradition.

I do not know if we will open again.  in any case, 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, but I will miss you, our guests, most of all!  Thank you for sharing your fun times with me, my family, and my team!
