Portage Lakes Cruises was formed in May, 2013 by Judy Narducci, a life-long resident of Portage Lakes. A graduate of Coventry High School, Judy is a member of several local organizations and worked as a geriatric nurse for many years, retiring from that position in June, 2015.
Judy really enjoys getting out on the water and his business grew out of the notion that other people would enjoy boating on the scenic Portage Lakes, also. That notion seems to be true, as more people are drawn here from all over the area and the world year after year!
What does the future hold for this business? As people learn of how much fun it is boating here, more resources have been added. There are four pontoon boats in service, and more friendly and capable Captains keep finding their way to us – currently there are 6 of them. This rounds out a great team. Come let Lorie, Kay, Tresa, Stormy, Al or Steve do the driving and show your group around. Watch for more availability in the future!
The Portage Princess, (AKA the ‘BIG BOAT’) that carries as many as 45 guests came into service in 2017, carrying large groups around in style. Now live music comes on board in the evenings, and Victorian Teas serve delicious luncheons to 30 guests. COMING IN 2020: Early Bird Buffet Dinners with live music. Watch for details in the Spring.
So come aboard, kick off your shoes, and enjoy the ride.
