Our guide was very professional and had a huge amount of knowledge about the lakes. It was a pleasant ride on a lovely day and my crowd loved it
Admiral Judy was kind and informative. The experience was relaxing and fun
Stormy, our captain, was friendly and informative. HIghly recommend!
Our group couldn't have been happier! Our Captain was Judy and she is so nice and extremely knowledgeable! We learned so much about the lakes on a relaxed and comfortable pontoon ride. I highly recommend this to anyone! You can't beat the price or the hospitality of the crew. Buy it today, you won't be sorry! Thank you Portage Lakes Cruises & Captain Judy!
Captain was quite knowledgeable about area. Very easy boarding for my disabled father.
I actually upgraded to the 50 passenger Portage Princess and held my wedding on it. It was a great experience. The staff was very nice and helpful. The guests said it was the most memorable wedding they had been to.
Everything was great! The crew(Bill and Sharane) were very nice and accomodating to 9 little girls! Bill was driving and he was very patient. The boat was also stocked full of water and bandaids which was perfect for accident prone kids! Thank you so much!
It was great very knowledgeable guide perfect evening
Judy is a great guide through the lakes both in terms of her knowledge of the area and in guiding the boat through the lakes. MY guests really enjoyed it/
It was everything as promised and then some.
because we did it previously!
Judy is a wonderful guide and the trip on Portage Lakes is relaxing and informative. Our guests loved it as well and raved about the beautiful scenery.
Captain Judy is super to work with. This was the second cruise I've arranged with her and each time went without a hitch. This time we had an elderly person with us who needed to get on the boat with a wheel chair which she provided. Worked out great. She's warm and inviting and always has something new to show you at the lakes she obviously loves. You go girl!

Thanks for being willing to go the distance with us, even though the weather wasn't the best. It was a special celebration for us and you made it a memorable day. Thanks so much!
Judy is such a great hostess! She is so warm and friendly! We really enjoyed all of her info about the homes around the lakes. We have gone on her pontoon boat twice now and we will definitely book with her again!
Everything was great. Pre-trip communication was great with Judy promptly answering the numerous questions I had. The trip itself was great with CPT kay being a great guide and very knowledgeable. Pricing was reasonable and I definitely recommend to others.
Kay was very knowledgeable, fun and helpful. We are from California and learned so much about your lake area. Thank you for the lovely lunch, beautiful weather, and wonderful afternoon!!!

This was a wonderful experience! The lakes and scenery were amazing, and Captain Judy was so personable and friendly that it felt more like going out on the lake with an old friend rather than a paid cruise!
