While the information provided was wonderful, I was frustrated that our two guides often talked over each other making it difficult to pay attention. Their enthusiasm and volume could be overwhelming. It was a perfect day on the lake, and the boat is well suited to the tour. I was very glad to join this tour!
I’ve been playing on Newfound Lake for 30 years. I learned a lot and have a better appreciation for one of my favorite places. Our captain was very knowledgeable and fun. Thank you for a great experience!
I'm a member and we try to do this every year. Tour and info guide s we got were first rate.
The pontoon boat was much nicer than we expected and so comfortable. The captain and his volunteer were so knowledgeable and obviously love the lake. It was a great experience. One of NH's best kept secrets.
Our skipper, Andy, was both professional and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and will sure bring friends out next year to do the same. Thanks!
The entire experience was excellent from the person that spoke about different aspects of the Lake and the driver of the boat. We learned some of the history of the lake that we did not know. Overall it was a very relaxing tour. A sunset cruise in the future would be a great idea. Thanks again for a fun time!
Really nice guides and they were very knowledgeable! THANK YOU Les and Elaine!
The whole experience of being on this special lake. Birds and wildlife, scenery, Andy and Jan, and the flexibility that we were offered with creating our own tour. Thanks again!
We had wonderful guides who knew a lot about the lake, the area in general, and conservation efforts. It was a joy to have a tour with Les and Elaine.
Very informative trip with knowledgeable staff. Relaxing and easygoing.
