If you were to go visit Falls Lake State Recreational Park, go to Beaver Dam State Park becaused motorized boats are prohibited, water is pretty clear and there are vast areas to camp, hike, kayak, fish or swim.

I am not aware of any regular boat tours on Falls Lake. You might go some searches for boating places and call around.
