Lake Geneva Mailboat tour and ride 

Mailboat Adventure and tour!  Ever wonder how the people on Lake Geneva get their mail?? By boat of course! Come join us for a boat ride that shows you just how its done – jumping off the boat!!! And back on! All while the mailboat never stops! Come celebrate 100 years of mail delivery on Lake Geneva! Watch the prestigious jumpers as they deliver the mail one dock at a time. 

Jumpers narrate the tour in between leaps from the boat to about 60 piers. They describe the historic estate homes that passengers see up close as the boat nears the piers. Many of the mansions were once owned by Chicagoans of fame and fortune, including the Swifts, Maytags, Bordens, and Wrigleys.  The century tour also features bits of its rich history, including the excitement of the mailboat arriving to resident docks  during both world wars, when families could learn the latest news and hope for letters from their loved ones fighting overseas.

Passengers are invited to write a postcard while taking the tour on the iconic Mailboat which is hand canceled with a special U. S. Mailboat stamp, the only spot in the world where this postmark is available.  

Price per person is $37.98
