Keuka Lake Pontoon Rides

As someone who owns and captains a boat, I know how enjoyable it is to simply enjoy a boat ride. Our private charter tours are based on what we know and love about Keuka- good for bachlor/bachlorette rides, family excursions, boating to dinner and pretty much anything you want to do on the lake!

Enjoy the waters of Keuka Lake by Boat

Living on Keuka Lake ourselves has deepened our love of being on the water and having a good time. There is not a lot that can beat a peaceful, relaxing boat ride; especially if you are not the one driving.

Have a Great Time with Family and Friends

Taking a scenic pontoon boat ride on Keuka Lake with your family and friends is a fun experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

We Promise to Keep the Ride Hassle-free

The only thing holding you back from taking this ride is the hassle of finding a boat rental company, scheduling and driving to the marina, driving and docking the boat and then returning it to the marina at the set time. Which can feel extremely daunting when all you wanted was time on the lake! Cruisin’ Keuka cuts out all that stress for you by picking you (+ friends) up at your dock or you can drive to our dock which has no steps and plenty of parking available. Bonus points- you don’t even need to know how to drive a boat!

Wonderful experience and a great boat ride to remember ! Jim is absolutely wonderful and a great host. Our family had so much fun on the tour and Keuka lake is stunning beautiful! A must visit when you are in that area.


I can not say enough how wonderful Jim and Shelly were!!! They had such great knowledge of the area and were so helpful in guiding our lake trip! They were also super accommodating and flexible to whatever we wanted to do! The boat was is great condition and was incredibly clean. We were a group of 11 on a bachelorette trip and fit very comfortably onboard. Captain Jim was very quick to answer any questions we had prior to the trip. We would 1000% book again!

Enjoy a Great Cruise of Keuka Lake!

In September 2022, we had a celebration of life for my Mom. My parents loved Keuka Lake & this was such a special way to celebrate them both! Captain Jim was very accommodating of our wishes. It was truly a special day for our family! Thanks Jim!

Cruisin Keuka with Jim was a perfect way to spend an afternoon with our girlfriend’s getaway. The boat was spotless, spacious for our group of 11 , the ride was smooth and Jim was a great host. We look forward to repeating this experience during our next reunion!
