We enjoyed a great ride on Portage Lakes and learned a lot about the local history...including some humorous tales! Our guide was great and the boat and refreshments made for a comfortable trip around the lakes. Not our first trip with PLC and won't be our last!
friendly service, nice clean boat, leisurely cruise and beautiful scenary. thank you !
Our Captain did a nice job of giving info and letting us enjoy the ride.
The boat tour was exactly as advertised. Nice relaxing cruise on the beautiful and wildlife filled Portage Lakes. The homes along the shorelines were beautiful offering picturesque gardens, adding to the serene scenery all around. Judy, the owner, and Al, their new skipper were friendly and informative. The boat was comfortable and you felt like you were among friends. Definitely enjoyed it!
She did a great job on our cruise and I have no complaints.
Stormy new her information well was
a safe person and presented interesting
Second cruise with Portage Lakes Cruises and really enjoyed Captain Stormy's tales of PLX life! What a fun couple of hours seeing a local treasure. Thank you - we'll be back.
It was relaxing and informative, seeing properties you dont see from the road and local.( I dont live too far). I like being on the water but dont know anyone w boats. My last ride was in Maine (5yrs ago)_ went whale watching, saw all the islands. My hearts wish and bucket list is to be on the water more, return to vacation destinations. not sure how due to back and walking issues. Thankyou for having this activity offered..
Captain Kay was wonderful with her wealth of knowledge and ability to answer our questions. We have become very enthusiastic fans of your cruise, and we are spreading the word. Our wives loved our Mystery Trip especially after relieving their anxiety as we told them initially (as a joke and distraction from the truth) we were going zip lining. The only problem we faced was that there were not any restrooms available. After coming from the Westside of Cuyahoga County, restrooms are a must. You may want to warn participants and advise a stop at the Fresh Market-nice clean restrooms and a place to purchase snacks for the cruise. Thanks!!!
Theresa was professional and very knowledgeable. She was welcoming and fun. We came away from the cruise relaxed and felt like we know so much more about the beautiful Portage Lakes Area. The length of the cruise was perfect. Thank you Theresa and Judy! We
The 4 of us loved our cruise. The captain was very nice and full of information about Portage Lakes. I would highly recommend the cruise for my friends. The only recommendation would be to put a cover over the whole boat. The sun can get to you in 2 hours.
We love boat rides and had never been on the Portage Lakes. It was perfect for a beautiful summer afternoon !
The captain Judy was so knowledgeable.....so pleasant. Extra snacks were provided due to weather conditions....this was such a thoughtful thing to do. A very nice experience!
excellent cruise judy and company
were very friendly and inforamtive
Making reservations was very easy! Judy is an experienced professional! Our Captain was Kay, the best tour guide we have ever had!! The pontoon boat was clean and luxurious. The scenery was breathtaking!! AND the price was very reasonable. We had a wonderful time!!! I recommend this tour to all my friends!

Wonderful weather, the guide was very knowledgeable, great scenery
Captain Judy was very knowledgeable about the lakes and made the experience very interesting and completely worth it
Very relaxing. Views were awesome. Learned a lot as well. More than I expected.
My mom, son, and I went on a public cruise and had an absolute blast! I would recommend this cruise to anyone looking for a nice relaxing boat ride. They tailor the tour to you and your family. The scenery is beautiful. Captain Judy does a wonderful job explaining the houses on the Tour of Homes as well. Great for families or a nice afternoon out. I’ve gone every summer since I’ve heard about the place.
We thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. First time on Portage Lakes. We had no idea of the lovely homes and clear water that existed in our back yard of Northern Ohio. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the lakes and a proficient driver. She made the trip interesting with her insights. Judy even called us to come earlier than planned due to bad weather predictions which was appreciated since we do not live close. Thanks much! I would recommend this cruise to anyone who would like a relaxing cruise to find out about this hidden treasure.
Captain Judy made us feel welcome and she provided a wonderful tour of Portage Lakes. We had a wonderful time. Very safe, fun time.
Had a wonderful cruise. Judy was very friendly, well informed and when storm clouds made an appearance she was very professional in getting us to the dock safely without causing any alarm. Recommend this for anyone looking for an interesting/relaxing interlude. Thank you Judy
Beautiful morning on the lakes! Beginning to end perfection. Easy booking process, excellent instructions and directions, friendly owner and staff, clean boat, great narrative while cruising, good value for price, relaxing, fun, great way to get a little sun or shade outdoors, fabulous way to spend time with a friend or loved one. Don’t worry, you’ll be happy!
I enjoyed being on the water. Our boat host was very knowledgeable and friendly.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience touring Portage Lakes with Judy. What a great day!!! We will definitely be using Portage Lakes Cruises several times this summer.
Judi was great and very knowledgeable and fun! The weather was beautiful too .. thank you so much we will definitely go again
We had a great time on the cruise with Judy. I grew up in Portage Lakes and we were able to trade stories during the cruise. Thanks for filling in some blanks for me and for taking by my "old" house. I would love to do it again. Cherrie Brown Lozada
The cruise was very relaxing and Judy was very knowledgeable
about Portage Lakes. It was most enjoyable. I will be going again
in the future. Thanks! ⚓️⛴⛵️🚤
We had a very relaxing 2 hours boat cruise. Judi and her friend are knowedgeable about the area. Very happy with the service. Clean boat too. I highly recommend.
Hi, it was great time to take the cruise. I and my wife enjoyed the cruise. You were so kind.
We loved being able to see the lakes from a different perspective. We thought that two hours was a bit long in the sun, (especially for the blonde and the red head -- we cooked), and we were grateful that the pilot (can't remember her name!) was willing to head back after an hour and a half. I was raving about the experience to my brother and he said that two hours sounded too long. (We hadn't told him that we thought it was long, too.)
Our only suggestion would be that you offer an hour tour for $20.00 per person. Of course, we understand that we are older than you target demographic and have less stamina that we had even five years ago. Still, we are going to ask some friends if they would like to do the dinner cruise with us. We definitely will be back.
Thank you for changing our reservations and refunding the difference. It speaks volumes about the way you do business.
Till next time,
Best family fun this Summer!
The website was easy to find, provided all the times and types of trips along with the cost. I added additional family members a few days later and we had a wonderful family trip around the lakes. The boat captain explained many of the sites we were seeing and seemed to really love the area too. We ordered packed lunches that were delicious too
My older sister needed assistance to get to the boat since there are stairs involved. The kind restaurant people and Judy made sure that it was possible to board and, at the end of the journey, to get off. A good time for both of us.
