Go through the point of entry gate.

Parking is available in the paved lot next to the fire station, with the blue canopy.



Arriving at Pleasant Harbor

Please plan to arrive at least 1 hour prior to cruise departure, to allow for sufficient travel time from the parking lot to the marina. Pleasant Harbor charges a $9.00 per vehicle ($2.00 per person on chartered buses) entry fee. Active-Duty Military, Veterans, Firefighters, and Police Officers receive FREE gate entry with ID. Shuttle golf carts are available to pick you up in the parking lot at the blue canopy, and bring you down to the floating marina. The shuttle ride is FREE, but tips are appreciated and encouraged. The shuttle service is provided by Pleasant Harbor Marina, not Lake Pleasant Cruises. It is provided to all guest visiting the property, not only cruise guests, and is available on a first come, first served basis. If preferred, it is a 10-15 minute walk to the marina.
