Soaking Up The Last Breaths of Summer Aboard a Cruise With Adirondack Cruise & Charter Company

Thursday, August 24, 2017
I don't know about you, but I can hardly believe that summer is almost over.  In just two weeks, Labor Day will be upon us.  Kids will be back in school and swimsuits and warm summer nights will be replaced with backpacks and hoodies.  But until then, there's still some summer left and that means there's still time to get out there and enjoy it. What better way to enjoy it than on the water!  If you aren't lucky enough to have a boat of your own, not to worry, Adirondack Cruise & Charter Co. has a perfect solution.
You might recognize this view taken from aboard the General Schuyler, a 1900's Replica Fantail Launch, a beautiful vessel owned by the Adirondack Cruise & Charter Co.   I blogged about it in April when it was first launched (  Since then I've had a few opportunities to get out on the fully remodeled beauty and I feel compelled to share my adventures.

One of our favorite cruises (besides the sunset cruise) is the Coffee Cruise.  I don't know if it's the fewer boats on the lake in the morning or the smell of hot coffee when you're cruising gently over the waves, but there's something intoxicating and relaxing about being on the lake in the morning that is so wonderful.  The beautiful views aren't so tough to endure either.

I happened to do the coffee cruise two Sundays in a row recently. (You've got to take advantage of the good weather, right?).  Normally Captain Hal was the pilot on our cruises last year, but this year some new captains and crew have been added.  The Sunday crew is comprised of Curtis and Rosemary - a competent and skilled team whose capabilities were only surpassed by their warmth and friendly hosting.  Like Hal, Curtis and Rosemary are well educated when it comes to the history of the lake and surrounding areas.  If you didn't know much about the area when you boarded the boat, you'll know plenty when you disembark.
Coffee for the morning cruise is supplied by the Five Points Deli in Saratoga and is delicious.  Guests who want coffee or tea pay a little extra for their tickets and that includes the coffee and a beautiful souvenir mug.  Tickets for passengers without coffee or tea are less.

Rosemary, the crew and hostess with the mostest!  Notice the fancy, now enclosed, 'head' behind her.

If you're not a morning person, don't worry. Adirondack Cruise & Charter has you covered.  There's a whole variety of cruises available from sunset cruises on the weekend, to Sip & Sail cruises on Tuesday's during track season, to afternoon cruises on the lake.  You can even book a private charter. If you're saying, "I'm not a boat person", think again.  This vessel floats so smoothly over the water, you'll hardly know you're on the water. No matter which cruise you choose, you won't be disappointed and you'll enjoy every minute of the scenic view of Saratoga Lake from the best vantage point ever.  Check out their website today ( to book your cruise before the summer is over.  Cruises are running through October.  To learn more about this beautiful 1900 replica vessel, check out my earlier post:
There's not a prettier boat on the lake or nicer passengers.  To follow Adirondack Cruise & Charter on Facebook:  Winter will be here before you can blink.  Take advantage of this great weather while it lasts.
