Lake Taneycomo Cruises – Ride the Waters at the Branson Landing
There’s always something new and interesting to do in Branson, and exploring our area lakes is just one of the activities that so many partake of each year. However, there are other ways besides fishing, boating, and swimming to enjoy our lakes. Main Street Lake Cruises at Branson Landing offers a variety of opportunities for you to enjoy Lake Taneycomo without hassle.
Main Street Lake Cruises opened its doors to the Branson Landing in 2008 with two magnificent boats to take you over Lake Taneycomo in. The Lake Queen is a modern day paddleboat replica, and the Landing Princess is a 100’ luxury yacht. There are a variety of public cruises to choose from, including romantic dinner cruises and narrated sightseeing tours of the breathtaking Ozark Mountains. Special events and holiday cruises also occur throughout the year.
Main Street Lake Cruises offers four daily sightseeing and dinner cruises. Each cruise takes from 1 ½ hours to two hours, and features different sights along the cruise route. The “Beach and Back Sightseeing Cruise” takes two hours to complete and gives passengers views of the beautiful Ozark scenery and wildlife. You will pass by an antebellum style mansion, the campus of Kanakuk Kamps, the Boston Gold Mine site, Rockaway Beach, and what legend has to be Al Capone’s summer home on the 100’ Lake Queen paddleboat. The Morning Sightseeing Cruise is another option. It is 30 minutes shorter than the Beach and Back cruise and omits the Boston Mine, Rockaway Beach, and Al Capone’s summer home.
The Dinner Cruise on the Landing Princess allows you to experience the same sites as the first two cruises, but adds a dinner service that is unmatched by others. Your service includes a delicious dinner, along with complimentary coffee, tea, water, and soda. A full service cash bar is available on this cruise. Dinner cruises must be reserved at least a half day in advance, so get your table reserved now!
The fourth cruise offered by Main Street Lake Cruises is the Sunset Cruise departing at 7:15 each evening. This cruise takes you past the same elements as the Beach and Back cruise, but in an entirely different perspective as the sun falls behind the horizon and you experience Lake Taneycomo not only by what you can see, but by what you can only hear. Father’s Day on the Landing Princess is just one of the special holiday cruises that occur at Main Street Lake Cruises. A special menu featuring salad, beef brisket and pork ribs, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn muffins, and a brownie with vanilla ice cream. The cruise will last two hours and departs at 12:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.
Aside from the scheduled special events, you can book your family reunion, wedding reception, or other special occasion with Main Street Lake Cruises. You get the best in service, including start to finish coordinators and everything else you need to make your event the best one yet.
