RIDE NOW!

If you are at Waterfront Bar & Grill or anywhere on the lake and want to go for a tour now - Great! 

Text or call 1st mate Julie at:

 614-935-8525.  This is the quickest way to immediately schedule a tour.


YOU DECIDE THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO GO AND WHAT YOU WANT TO EXPLORE WHILE ON THE LAKE.....IF YOUR NOT SURE, SOME IDEAS ARE:


MAIN LAKE TOUR

Tour the entire lake starting at Waterfront heading west through the no wake zone passing by the bog, yacht club and cruise along the dam to Liebs Island in Millersport then return heading east passing islands and the winery back to the east basin.

This tour can be done in 1 hour and is the most popular tour for first time riders.


SUNSET CRUISE 

Sunset Cruise - only one available per day!

Same rates apply, however typically a longer trip. This tour leaves one hour before sunset (It's on GOOGLE) and heads west until the sun goes down. Order dinner at Waterfront and  tell them its to go!


DAM TOUR

Take a slow dam tour past the dam houses following the new 4.1 mile long dam from State Park in Buckeye Village to State Park in Millersport passing Boat Yard and Dips Ice Cream and the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club. 


BOG TOUR

Take a tour through the north side- no wake zone through the neighborhood of Cranberry Bay. Travel around the bog (sorry, no stepping onto the Bog) and return going through Maple Bay (a part of the lake most have never seen before) which surrounds Harbor Hills.  Nice slow tour, mostly off the main lake.


NEIGHBORHOOD CRUISE

You decide the Neighborhood you would like to see from the water. Heron Bay, Maple Bay, Harbor Hills, Compass Point, Snug Harbor, Liebs Island or Downtown Millersport homes on the canal- or any combination - the options are endless



BUCKEYE LAKE FIREWORKS

JULY 3RD

See an awesome display of fireworks from the water!

This tour leaves at 9pm 

SOLD OUT for 2020!
