WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Jim Risch, senior member and former chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, announced the selection of McCall Lake Cruises as the Idaho Small Business of the Month for September 2022. McCall Lake Cruises will be recognized for its contribution to the community in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.

McCall Lake Cruises has operated The Idaho on Payette Lake for the last 10 years, sharing the scenic landscape and regional history with hundreds of visitors and locals alike. The Idaho is a 62-foot, 85-passenger cruise vessel built in northern Idaho in 1983.

With the help of The Idaho’s knowledgeable crew, new owners, Kyle and Jade Enzler, Steven and AJ Lee, and Ryan and Kelsey Parke enjoyed their first season on the lake. These six Idaho entrepreneurs look forward to continuing this special Idaho tradition for years to come.

“For a decade, McCall Lake Cruises has provided visitors and locals an opportunity to experience Idaho’s landscape and history,” said Risch. “My staff and I enjoyed a cruise around Payette Lake just last month.”

“Congratulations to McCall Lake Cruises on being the Idaho Small Business of the Month for September 2022,” Risch continued. “You make our great state proud, and I look forward to your continued growth and success.”

Background: Idaho is consistently ranked one of the best places in the country to do business. Each month, Senator Risch selects an Idaho small business that exemplifies the Idaho values of hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, and exceptional commitment to community.
