Hello dafyda, and welcome the forum! The Swiss Flexi Pass seems to be the best option for your plans. You can decide which days to use as free travel days on the spot, before boarding your first train, bus or boat that day. All you have to do is fill out the date on your pass or have it stamped at a railway station. Further information, including a downloadable validity map showing which routes are for free on a free travel day and which are discounted, can be found at the Swiss Flexi Pass page
. As for the Golden Round trip: boat, bus and rail sections will be for free on a free travel day; mountain transportation between Alpnachtstad and Pilatus and between Kriens and Pilatus is discounted by 50%. Boats on the lakes you mentioned are covered on free travel days (except for some special dinner or celebration trips).
I haven't been able to confirm your information on the boats at lake Geneva
. The summer timetable that can be downloaded from the CGN website
doesn't mention this, nor does Geneva Tourism
. Where did you read about this? You could contact CGN or Geneva Tourism just to be sure.
