About

With the summer breeze in your face and the sun on your back, let the Chautauqua Belle take you on an unforgettable cruise!

Welcome on-board the largest and most historical vessel on Chautauqua Lake, the Chautauqua Belle!

This season we are please to announce the new schedule and ports of call for our vessel. In time-honored tradition of the original steamboats that once plied the waters of Chautauqua Lake, we are scheduled to arrive at the world famous Chautauqua Institution to pick up and drop off passengers who wish to visit the institution on a daily basis during the season. Learn about the history of Chautauqua on our daily narrated tours. Our local historian Helen Ebersole says “The Running Commentary by the personnel is an accurate, worthwhile and colorful review of lake history!”

Kick back, relax, and enjoy our full-service on-board bar. We also offer lunch, evening cocktail cruises, fireworks, dinner cruises, private charters, and cruises to the Chautauqua Lake Idol Event!  Enjoy the ever-popular Fall Foliage Cruises for the breathtaking panoramic views from the mariner’s eye of the gorgeous fall colors that makes Chautauqua County famous.

We invite you to come and enjoy beautiful Chautauqua Lake on-board the most notable vessel, the Chautauqua Belle!  Experience today what a steamship adventure is truly about!
