Do you want DAVE as your guide?

Many of you do, so here's the scoop.  Dave is near retirement age, and is not able to continue giving tours seven days a week.  He has hired two drivers for his 16 and 21-passenger buses, to help lighten his load and rotate days off. And, who knows, you might be here on a day the fish aren't biting!


Our buses are easily accessible and you will be given a great tour. Our most popular tour is The Emerald Lake Tour, from 8am to 3pm, which stops many times for photos and once for lunch at a restaurant. You must bring your PASSPORT for our tours. Check out this and other tours on the Tour Info page.


If you get Dave, that's great! He's almost as good as the drivers he's hired!
