Lac La Belle Historic Boat Tours

August 12th -14th 2024
City Beach Piers

The Oconomowoc Area Chamber of Commerce and the Oconomowoc Area Historical Society and Museum are working together to continue to offer Historic Boat Tours of Lac La Belle.

Shorehaven, who previously offered the tours, announced earlier this year that they would no longer be able to continue this cherished summer tradition.

Through our collective collaboration, and with the assistance of Buddy’s Beach Bungalow, we are honored to provide these important and entertaining tours of Oconomowoc’s rich history. The tours are a great opportunity for local residents and visitors alike to explore our area from a new perspective while enjoying scenic views of the lake.

The guided tours will launch on pontoon boats from City Beach and be narrated by volunteers from the Historical Society.  Each Tour will be 90 min long.  Bottled water and some shade will be provided on each boat.  The boats will depart promptly every two hours.  

For years, the tours have been guided by passionate volunteers who share their knowledge and love of Oconomowoc. Their engaging narratives bring the past to life, highlighting architectural landmarks, hidden gems, and fascinating stories that make our city unique.”

Tours will be offered on August 12, 13 and 14 at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and 6:00 pm. The cost of the tour is $30 per person, and advanced registration is required.
