If you are looking for fun things to do in Blue Ridge, put us at the top of your list. Maybe you have already made the train ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, and ziplined through the canopy, or even done a whitewater rafting or tubing trip and now you want to do something relaxing but really cool.
Come take the 2 hour Lake Tour on our charter boat. We have some breathtaking views from the lake and there are some spectacular homes on the shores, some of which belong to very rich and famous people.
There is always a very good chance to see wildlife around the shoreline, including deer, bear, turkey and many bird species.
Your guide will take you to key points around the lake and unveil the history and lore about the area. Bring your camera.... We might even see bigfoot!
The fall tours during the “leaf” season are absolutely spectacular. If you get chilly, you can come in the cabin and warm up. We also have an on-board head (potty).
FISHIN' WITH CAPT'N JOE
We are not professional anglers.Our style of fishing is what we call “Laid Back Fishin'… " We just like catching fish and we’re pretty good at it.
Catfish are a lot of fun to catch and are very palatable.Bream (or sunfish) are a blast to catch, especially for kids, and they are quite tasty.We do catch our fair share of bass (the lake offers plenty of spotted, small mouth and large mouth bass), as well as pike, and occasionally a lake trout.We use live bait and try to catch what is biting.We have a crew skilled in the art of cleaning and filleting fish.So if you want to keep your catch, just bring your cooler and ice.Or you can “Catch and Release” if you want.
We do not guarantee catching, but we do have the tools and experience to give you the best opportunity to catch something.If you have a favorite rod or lure, bring it.Otherwise, we will “hook” you up with what you need to fish.
If you are that experienced angler and want to work the lake, we can do that as well.We have the tools to find the fish and maybe we can even learn something from you.Just remember that it is a deck boat that we fish from, so you may want to do an exclusive charter trip with us.
Our rates are very competitive, and we can generally accommodate up to a party of eight or a total combined weight limit of 1,400 lbs.We do have a completely enclosed cabin should the weather turn foul and an on-board head (potty).
We offer half or full day charter.
Do you have that special person whom you would like to take to an extremely romantic dinner? Imagine... the two of you on the water, as the sun sets, being served an excellent dinner.
Or a group of friends throwing a birthday party on the lake.
Whatever special occasion, we will try to accommodate within our weight and occupancy limitations.
We offer a fully enclosed cabin which can seat up to eight, is seasonally heated and has an on-board head (potty).
