Memorial Day is almost here and that means the popular free pontoon boat tours are about to resume in the lagoons at Presque Isle State Park.
The one-hour tours will begin Friday and continue through June 30 on Thursdays through Sundays at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. from the launch near the East Boat Livery.
Only 16 seats are available for each tour and sign up begins in person each day at 10 a.m. I’ve been there at 10:30 and seen the seats for all three tours already claimed so don’t wait too long if you want to get on the boat.
Starting Wednesday, 90-minute evening tours will be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays at 7 p.m. The night tours also are free and fill up quickly. To save a seat on an evening ride, you have to call the park office on Monday beginning at 10 a.m. The number is (814) 833-7424.
