offers a wide selection of narrated tour boat rides for groups up to 100 on beautiful Skaneateles Lake. Choose a dinner, lunch or sightseeing cruise from mid-May to September 30. In July and August, you can ride the US Mailboat to deliver mail to cottage dwellers all along the 16-mile shoreline.
Our flagship, the Judge Ben Wiles, seats 100 with 26 on the upper deck and 74 on the main deck. The Barbara S. Wiles, a traditional Thousand Islands-style cruiser, seats 34 for the 3-hour Mail Cruise.
Cruises range from a 50-minute Sightseeing Cruise to a 3-hour sit-down Dinner Cruise. You can also charter either boat at an hourly rate and create your own experience.
Most meals on the boats are catered by the famous Sherwood Inn of Skaneateles and we can also package a Sightseeing Cruise with lunch at their restaurant across the street from our dock. For an informal Lunch or Dinner Cruise, choose the buffet from our local Syracuse favorite, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.
Our Skaneateles dock is located in downtown Skaneateles, walking distance to an array of parks, boutique shops, taverns and restaurants - most with an enviable view down the length of the beautiful lake.
You can also spice up your trip with a show at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse or a visit to a near-by winery, museum or outlet mall. We’re located in the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and just down the road from the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. With the history, scenery and recreational venues nearby, you can build a spectacular itinerary to please your guests!
Our family-owned company has been hosting groups since 1968. Let our experience guide your experience! And join us as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary season!
