Santa Cruise…

Holiday Cruisin…

Here is your chance to see some of the most beautiful lighting displays in the area from a particularly unique point of view, when you board the Santa Cruise for a ride on Geneva Lake to view lakefront estates all decked out for the holidays.

Join Gage Marine this holiday season for a Santa Cruise Boat Tour on Geneva Lake. Cruises depart the Gage Marine dock in Williams Bay hourly beginning at 4:30 p.m. everyday through the end of the year with a few exceptions.

Before you board your boat, you will have the opportunity to walk through the Twelve Charities of Christmas Tree Festival. As you travel around the lake, the lights on each estate are said to tell a magical story of a journey to Santa’s North Pole Hideaway. The cruise provides activities for the kids, along with a snack bar and beverages for kids as well as adults. So, start a new tradition this year and make a reservation to take a December Cruise on Geneva Lake. Plan to arrive early or stay late and enjoy a holiday cocktail and/or meal at Pier 290.

$2.00 from the sale of each ticket will go to support the Santa Cause and the Twelve Charities of Christmas. Please note that cruises only run if weather permits, so please check with the Gage Marine office or their website for tour schedule updates.

Gage Marine and Pier 290 are located at 1 Liechty Drive in Williams Bay.
