I was in Lugano a few weeks back. The hotel gave us a Ticino Ticket (we had to ask for it) which started on the day we checked in and ended on the day we checked out. It is valid all day on the days shown on the ticket.
See www.ticino.ch/en/ticke t.html
If you don't see it in English then select the correct language via the drop down top right on the web page (that's on a desktop browser, the mobile version has language choices at the bottom of the menu which pops up when you click the menu button top left).
I never used the ticket on the lake ferries but I understand you only get the 25% discount if you purchase a day pass for the ferry service. I used my Swiss Travel Pass Flex on the days we went on ferries so the trips were free.
This site www.arcobaleno.ch/en/c hi-siamo/le-imprese-di-trasporto says . . . .
"The Navigation Company of Lake Lugano (SNL) offers adiscount on its ferries to Arcobaleno passes holders.
The Navigation Company of Lake Maggiore (NLM) accepts monthly and annual passes on the Locarno-Magadino shuttle service
The Locarno - Madonna del Sasso Funicular Railway (FLMS) accepts monthly and annual passes
ASF Autolinee s.r.l. accepts Arcobaleno passes for the Lugano-Gandria route on the Lugano-Menaggio line.
Not sure if SNL means day ticket or longer term pass although the others are more specific.
