Solar panels were installed in 2014 with storage batteries giving us the option of parking at that special location on the lake with a complete noise free engine shut down experience, yet still having power available for music/microphones, restroom lights, and keeping the on board beverages cold!  Superseding McCall Lake Cruises expectations, the solar panels have reduce our generator run time by 80% saving over 200 gallons of fossil fuel per season.

Whether you want to soak up the sun with a cold drink on the top deck, or sit in the comfort of the heated enclosed cabin, The IDAHO, will have you and your family, friends, or colleagues cruising in comfort and style.
