"We live in Blue Ridge, and ever since we've been here, we've wanted to get out onto huge Lake Blue Ridge. Some friends tell us it has the best bass fishing in the US, lots of other people just rave about the views, swimming, and fun. Well, we heard about Capt'n Joe's Lake Adventures (visit their website !), and finally spent a half day out on the lake with Capt'n Joe and Sue (whose T shirt says "Mrs. Capt'n Joe.) Our grandkids, (14 and 10) were visiting for their spring break, and we all went. The kids loved it, we both loved it, and now all of us want to go again. Capt'n Joe and Sue have everything you need....they set up rods and reels for us all, baited them for us, and gave us all kinds of advice. AND, we actually caught fish---one in particular was cool, a pretty big "Walleye" which Capt'n Joe calls "the lobster of fresh water fish." Yes, he cleaned it beautifully for us, and we had it for dinner when we got home. Even the kids loved it. He was right--delicious. We fished several spots, and toured around almost all of the beautiful lake. The big pontoon boat has a warming room in case it's cold (it wasn't...had a beautiful day), and also a head (bathroom.) But best of all, this couple are pros--they know the lake and fishing, and couldn't be nicer. Plan a trip with them, and we guarantee you'll love it!"

"We had such an amazing time, I could not wait until the trip was over to post my review. As I am writing this, Capt'n Joe is driving us to another fishing spot. Both Capt'n Joe and Sue made us feel like family the second we met them at the ramp. Our morning has been filled with fun, laughter, some swimming, fishing and even some catching. So glad I found them and booked the full day charter. If your on the fence, stop thinking about it and book the trip, you will not regret it."

"We chartered a 4 hour sightseeing/fishing trip with Joe and Sue.They are both wonderful people! Our son was fairly new to fishing, and Capt'n Joe not only showed him the ropes, but also kept a watchful eye on him. Dan caught 7 fish and was just thrilled. Joe's knowledge of Lake Blue Ridge was very impressive. Sue was also very cordial and we just loved her. When we return next year we will be booking them again. We do a lot of activities when we are in Blue Ridge, and this one was the one I feel that we got the most "Bang for our buck" Well worth the money....and I don't say that lightly. What a great, memorable day that was!"

"Capt'n Joe and his lovely wife Sue made sure that my grandson and I had a TERRIFIC boat tour. They were very gracious and at the same time, very down home. Joe stopped several times to give us some history of certain things. Very informative and informal. Did not get at all impatient with my 6 year old. We just had a blast and hope to be able to go back in the fall when the leaves are changing colors in the Ga mountains. Thanks Sue and Joe."

"We just meet some of the best people ever. Sue and Capt’n Joe are very special people,with special hearts. We enjoyed our lake adventure, beautiful day,beautiful lake,but most important beautiful people. We will be telling everyone about this trip, will be going again for sure."

"We came up for our honeymoon during the off season and Sue and Captain Joe were so accommodating for us newlyweds! The pontoon boat is spacious and comfortable. You can either sit out on the front or inside the covered cabin if it’s too cold or if it’s raining. Captain Joe took us all around Lake Blue Ridge, showing us important landmarks, like the Blue Ridge Dam, and is extremely informative on the history and details of the lake and surrounding area. Sue was nice enough to take photos of us throughout the trip as often as we needed. We were even allowed to climb on top of the roof to see the views even better! I would recommend this tour to all families and couples. We’re not fishers ourselves, but they also offer fishing charters. To Captain Joe and Sue, thank you so much for making our honeymoon extra special! "
Vanessa J (FL)
"We chartered a four hour private tour. Captain Joe and Sue were super friendly and knowledgeable of the area and the history of the lake. We cruised to small islands where we could get off and explore. We stopped for a swim and a snack. Captain Joe was up for anything we wanted to do and helped us create some great memories."
Steve M (FL)
"Captain Joe and Sue were great hosts on a wonderful boat trip on a cool fogging morning! The day started out cool but turned into a beautiful fall day with fishing, island exploration, and breathtaking views as we cruised Lake Nottely. They were so sweet to our son, 5 and daughter, 9. Played fun songs, answered so many questions and made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the trip. The boat itself is equipped with an inside section for getting out of the cold or just a rest from the wind and the front has a great area with benches and fishing set up. I myself most enjoyed the cruising on the main deck while the rest of the family loved being up top above the closed in area. So much to do, all of which kept our kids entertained for 4 hours, not an easy task. We even saw 2 deer swimming across the lake. Great family memories, highly recommended! We are looking forward to booking another trip next time we are in town."

This is the right one for you!! After fishing was done we went swimming for a little bit too!!! Thank you Capt'n Joe for your hospitality!! We'll be seeing you again😉 "

"My husband and I took a trip with our daughter and three grandchildren (ages 11-13) to Blue Ridge to watch the solar eclipse. We stayed a few extra days and decided to spend one of them on Lake Blue Ridge with Capt'n Joe's Lake Adventures. Best decision of the week! The kids loved being able to fish, swim and jump from the sunning deck on top of the boat into the beautiful water. Captain Joe and Sue really know their way around the lake, and it was good to relax and know we were in experienced and capable hands"
Sue S (FL)
" We had an amazing time in the river. Cap taught me to bait a hook and I caught a nice bass. It was a beautiful day....the best surprise, capt Joe & Sue sang happy birthday to me with slice of cake and candle! Best charter in blue ridge! "
Lisa P (FL)
"Capt Joe and Sue were fabulous. Punctual and extremely friendly. We did a two hour tour of the lake. In that time he provided very interesting information about the lake with fascinating details. We learned about the history of the dam, famous people who live on the lake, and about fishing on the lake (they offer fishing tours as well). The lake itself is absolutely georgeous. For my next visit with Capt Joe and Sue, I’ll think I’ll add a little swimming to the tour!"
Bill N (FL)
"We loved the tour of Blue Ridge Lake with Capt'n Joe. The lake is beautiful. The boat tour was relaxing and enjoyable. Next time we plan to do the fishing tour."
" Easy to book with, on time, super nice and accomodating. Just my husband, 12 year old daughter, and myself. beautiful scenery, relaxing. Would def recommend and plan to do sunset trip next time! "
"I got to go cruising and fishing with Capt'n Joe in June. It was an amazing time! The fish were biting and the lake was beautiful! Capt'n Joe and crew were so helpful and knowledgeable. They were very concerned with everyone's safety, but also very laid back so we could all enjoy the trip. They were very personable and welcoming. I highly recommend taking an adventure with Capt'n Joe. I will be visiting Georgia again in November and I can't wait to take another boat tour with them! "

"I caught my first fish in my whole life and the first fish of the trip and my second fish was the biggest bass of the trip. And I had fun!"

"My daughter took me out for a fishing trip with Capt'n Joe's Lake Adventures as a birthday gift. I had a great time and even caught a bass. I will definitely be booking with them again soon."
Frank H (GA)
"Had a great time out on the lake. It was such a beautiful ride with the mountains all around and a nice cool breeze from the boat making it perfect for the hot summer day. My 3 yr old son could not stop talking about how much fun he had the whole way home. Beautiful lake, fun boat, and nice people. Definitely worth visiting!"
Ashley S (FL)
"If you're in Blue Ridge, GA you should take a tour with Capt'n Joe's Lake Adventures. If you're not in Blue Ridge, you should go to Blue Ridge to take a tour. It's amazing! Highly recommended by this girl! "
