Trees sway on the shoreline. A bald eagle arcs across the sky. The lake ripples as a pontoon boat calmly cuts through its surface. The captains of Jordan Lake Pontoon Cruises, who are licensed for guiding on inland lakes, usher their passengers across the lake on various excursions from morning to night. On the seasonal Fall Leaf Cruise, they showcase the area's colorful fall foliage, and on Eagle-Viewing Cruises they help passengers catch glimpses of the lake's large bald-eagle population. They also lead guided fishing trips and charter the boat for swimming and fishing excursions. On select tours, captains provide breakfast and coffee or snacks, and invite passengers to board with their own drinks.
