Portage Lakes Cruises is a pontoon charter service, designed to give people access to ‘The Lakes’. Don’t want the hassle of owning a boat, and want to be part of the group instead of driving? Not familiar with the area and don’t want to miss a thing? Let our experienced captains and crew handle the docking, share historical and more recent information about the area, and sanitize the boat after your cruise. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.
Portage Lakes Cruises was formed in May, 2013 by Judy Narducci, a life-long resident of Portage Lakes. A graduate of Coventry High School, Judy is a member of several local organizations and worked as a geriatric nurse for many years, retiring from that position in June, 2015.
Judy really enjoys getting out on the water and this business grew out of the notion that other people would enjoy boating on the scenic Portage Lakes, also. That notion seems to be true, as more people are drawn here from all over the area and the world year after year!
What does the future hold for this business? As people learn of how much fun it is boating here, more resources have been added. There are five pontoon boats in service. Friendly and capable Captains keep finding their way to us – currently there are 6 of them. This rounds out a great team. Come let Lorie, Tresa, Stormy, Cindy, Al or Steve do the driving and show your group around.
Come aboard, kick off your shoes, and enjoy the ride.
