Each season hundreds of thousands of Idaho guests experience the beauty of  Cascade, McCall and the surrounding region. One of the prime draws within the area is Payette Lake. Since being settled by Tom McCall and his family more than 120 years ago it has provided scenic and recreational opportunities for those who visit and live in McCall. Around the turn of the last century there were two classic steam launches, “The Lyda” and “The Winston,” that provided scenic lake cruises.

This season has seen the rebirth and reinvention of cruises on pristine Payette Lake. The Idaho, a 65', 85-passenger, double-deck cruise boat offers daily tours to the public  and private charters for everything from corporate events to weddings.
