This was quite a relaxing way to spend three hours seeing most of Moosehead Lake and its surrounding mountains. The turkey avocado sandwich and whoopie pie was delicious!

My husband and I took the Kate last fall. It was awesome. The trip was beautiful. Even on a boatful of people we felt like we were in our own little world. The boat itself is a piece of history. The lake is beautiful. Bring a jacket, it is Maine and it can get chilly.

My review is not for the experience of riding the Kate, it's for the lack of access to accurate information. Prior to coming to Greenville with my husband and two friends, I checked the Website and saw that the boat did not operate on Sundays or Mondays, but noted that the season ending date was October 13th--Columbus Day Monday, so...

This review is based solely on the seven-hour cruise that covers the entire length of Moosehead Lake from south to north and back again. First, a tip: get to the parking lot an hour early! The best seats on the Katahdin (aka "Kate") are near the bow on the upper deck, and all seats are general admission, so first come,... More

A wonderful way to spend an afternoon (it helped to have perfect weather). The trip gave us interesting insights into life along the lake today and in days gone by. Probably all visitors to Moosehead need to do this.

We enjoyed the four hour Mt. Kenoe tour very much. The views were spectacular. Captain Tom was full of interesting information (and a few tall tales). Bring more jacket than you think you need, the breeze really picks up out on the lake. You can bring along some snacks and beverages, or get something from the limited galley. There are... More

We were fortunate to take a tour on the "Kate" to celebrate her 100 years!! We couldn't believe as we cruised on Moosehead Lake how massive in size it really is!!

What a wonderful history of the steamship "The Kate". Beautiful cruise up the Moosehead Lake. Captain gave interesting tidbits of stories, both truths & rumors, about the area. Lovely way to spend the afternoon. Would definitely recommend. Floatplanes were flying all around us, adding to the fun.

The boat was very well maintained for a 100 yr old!! The facilities were very good, a decent galley for food and drink, seating from every side and every deck. The chance to go onto the bridge or down in the engine room if that was of interest to you. There was a very interesting narrative about the sights and... More
