See Our Auction Items!

Presented by the Fools’ End Club, the inaugural Smoke on the Water Cigar Cruise is a unique opportunity to share great cigars with good friends while exploring Flathead Lake on a private cruise.

The day will include a land-based celebration with food, live music, drinks, and outdoor smoking at Volunteer Park in Lakeside, Montana. We then board a private charter provided by Far West Boat Tours for a cruise along the shore of Flathead Lake. On board we’ll continue enjoying cigars, drinks, and music. There’s no better way to see the lake!
