Cedar Point Now Offering Lake Erie Cruises

SANDUSKY, Ohio, /PRNewswire/ — There are two new ways to see the sights and sounds of Cedar Point, the Lake Erie waterfront as well as the many exciting attractions of the North Coast.

Based out of the Cedar Point Marina, the Sandusky Riverboat Company and North Coast Excursions are now offering two different boating services: paddlewheel boat tours and personalized cruises. Both of these services will be offered every day during the summer through the end of Cedar Point’s daily operating season. The paddlewheel boat cruises will operate from noon to 9 p.m. daily, while North Coast Excursions will be scheduled based upon personal preference.

The 40-minute paddlewheel boat trips will take passengers on a relaxing voyage along Sandusky Bay and will provide beautiful views of the Lake Erie shoreline, the Cedar Point Marina and Cedar Point including picturesque looks at the Maverick, Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster roller coasters.

Guests will board the Winnebago, one of the paddlewheel boats used on Cedar Point’s Western Cruise boat ride that operated in the park for nearly 40 years. The Winnebago holds up to 49 passengers and will be docked next to Famous Dave’s in the Cedar Point Marina. Reservations are recommended but not required.

The cost for the paddlewheel cruises will be $10 for adults and $5 for Juniors (ages 5-12), while Seniors (age 62 and over), active and retired members of the armed forces and Cedar Fair Platinum Passholders can purchase tickets for $8.

There will also be special Fireworks Cruises on the Winnebago on Sunday and Monday, July 3 & 4 from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Cedar Point will present holiday fireworks displays on both nights beginning at 10 p.m. (weather permitting). The cost of these cruises is $16 for adults. Reservations for these special trips are recommended.

The paddlewheel boat is also available for private charters, weddings, parties and group outings.

At North Coast Excursions, passengers can create a customized cruise aboard a 31-foot Tiara. These cruises allow boaters to select their own itinerary for an afternoon or evening cruise or even a full-day adventure.

These personalized excursions are ideal for entertaining family, friends or clients. Possible itineraries include sunset cruises, trips to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Kelley’s Island, Put-in-Bay or simply enjoying the beauty of Lake Erie to cater to specific requests and needs.
