Great boat ride with an informative crew that knew their history about the McCall area. This was a sunset cruise with a live pianist for entertainment! Wonderful!

It was the perfect afternoon for a relaxing cruise around beautiful Payette Lake. The cruise was informative about the geography, topography and history of the area. Great time!
