Come enjoy an evening out on the lake, with your personal captain and tour guide Riva Beatty. Whether you have lived on the lake your whole life or new to town…I promise you will learn something, and see some rare photos.  Sorry but there are NO tours on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays due to heavy lake traffic.

On the tour you will hear of the Lake Orion Dragon, Park Island’s amusement park, the Bellevue Hotel and more. Riva has been collecting Antique Post Cards and RARE photographs of Lake Orion, which you will view while hearing the history.
