Lagoon by Pontoon

The lagoon at Presque Isle is full of natural surprises such as sun basking turtles, wading great blue herons, beavers slapping their tails on the water, and many other natural wonders. Join the park staff and volunteers on a one-hour interpretive pontoon boat ride to discover the natural history and beauty of the interior. These daily rides depart at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 2:00pm.  Sign-up for these three rides begins at 10:00 AM in person at the pontoon station and is a first-come, first serve basis. Sign-up is limited to 6 seats per person regardless of age on all rides. This is a free program that accommodates 16 guests plus crew..

Programming is subject to modification or cancellation at the discretion of park staff.  If you need an accommodation to participate in Park activities due to a disability, please contact Presque Isle State Park at 814-833-7424 to make arrangements for your visit.  With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.  Please call the Erie ASL Interpreters’ Office at (814) 806-2511 for more information about this service.

Arrived before 1000 & the 1100 slot was filled! There were seats available at 1pm & 2pm but did not sign up for those...a lot of people waiting in line with us left as well...very disappointing!

Bill and Terry were wonderful! As was the little girl who’s name I didn’t catch. A very pleasurable experience for myself and children (6 & 10).
