Lake Norman Chartered Cruises

Lake Norman has several private and public chartered cruises to choose from during your visit, some offering special programs and events for each cruise! Bookings for private charters are available and be sure to plan ahead during peak seasons.

Located in Cornelius, Charlotte Cycleboats is a family-friendly pedal-powered boat that offers individual tickets for open party mixer cruises and the opportunity to host private parties. Enjoy a lovely dinner cruise on The Catawba Queen, replica of the Mississippi River Boat, or on The Lady of the Lake, while being out on the glimmering waters of Lake Norman. Each boat offers a unique setting to experience whether it be taking a step back into history or having an elegant and classy dinner. Bring your friends and embark on an adventure with a USGC captain to navigate the lake on a sailboat.
