Cruise the Beautiful
Chautauqua Lake
on the Summer Wind!

 

Unfortunately, due to damages sustained from an early June storm, the Summer Wind is currently out of commission and undergoing repairs.  We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to be running our regular schedule by mid-August.  

About Us

The 130 passenger “Summer Wind” is a new sleek state-of-the-art, yacht-type cruise build for those who like to relax and enjoy the beauty of Chautauqua Lake.  Allowing for ultimate viewing, this one-of-a-kind excursion vessel puts the SEE in sightseeing.

Customized charters and customer services is our goal.  Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, class reunions, after the prom parties, and various school events can be celebrated in style aboard the “Summer Wind”.

Corporate events and meetings can be held in the luxurious dining salon, or you may prefer the breezes of the semi-open upper Admiral’s Deck.

The “Summer Wind” offers daily sightseeing (with or without lunch reservations) and Dinner Cruises.  Pizza Cruises are offered almost daily while moonlight Cruises will be available upon request.  Brunch Cruises on Sunday afternoons will be a meld of breakfast and lunch fare.

Dining on the “Summer Wind” is a delightfully luxurious experience.  After some sightseeing on the bow or upper deck, excellent cuisine is served in the climate-controlled plush interior salon.  Lunch and dinner cruises feature catering by 3C’s Catering.  Round out your excursion with a cocktail from our full-service liquor bar.  For your listening pleasure, live entertainment is featured on some Dinner Cruises.

Enjoy a complete historical narration on Sightseeing, Brunch, Lunch, Pizza, and Chicken BBQ Cruises.
