Universal Hovercraft Winter Cruise: January 27th - 28th 2018

Winter Cruise on Geneva Lake, WI

Universal Hovercraft is hosting a cruise on Geneva Lake. This is an informal gathering of hovercraft and is intended to be extremely fun. We intend to hover no matter what the conditions are (please check in for updates before attending). 

Our typical day includes a cruise across the lake (8 miles) to the town of Lake Geneva. The town is filled with nice shops, restaurants and hotels. All are within walking distance of our parking spot on the lake. After a relaxing look around we’ll head back across the lake for lunch. 

Weather and schedule permitting, we are invited to attend the Gordys Marina Ice Party where free food and drink are available.

After lunch we head back out to the lake for another cruise and general operation. 
On most weekends the lake is busy with excitement. Ice boats, snowmobiles, 4-wheelers, airplanes, helicopters and trucks are all playing in various parts of the lake. The lake is big enough to host all of these activities with room to spare. 

Bathrooms are available at various locations around the lake. If you intend to stay and cruise with us Sunday you will find many resorts, hotels and motels available. We typically book rooms at the Abbey Resort at Fontana, WI.

 Cold weather, wind, snow or melting ice will not cancel the event. The website will be updated constantly  with information especially the week before the event. Check the website, email us or call Universal  Hovercraft for the latest information.
