What makes us different

Meet Captain J


Hi all! 👋 I'm Jason Hayes. My love for the lake was the reason for starting this Charter business. I am a third generation boater and a Great Sacandaga Lake native. My love for the lake started when I was a child.

My mom grew up going to Sand Island for Sunday night dinners with the whole family, they would bring the pack and play, water to boil on a fire, pasta, and Sunday sauce. I now have a family of my own and love to share my knowledge of the lake and watch their love for the lake grow year after year.

Sacandaga Charters offers 2 hours or more private custom boat tours starting from Lake Side Tavern & Marina 306 Woods Hollow R.d Gloversville N.Y 12078. We cater to families, group events, private parties, team building, and work events. Customize your tour today!
