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

This was a four and a half hour trip that was well narrated and provided lots of beautiful scenery of Moosehead Lake. Mount Kineo was observed up close due to the depth of water around that part of the lake. Seating is a folding chair, not the best but for the value not a problem. You did need to be... More

My wife and I took the three-hour ride and had a great time. Not only do you get a good view of the lake, but you also hear information about the history of the lake and surrounding area from the captain as he guides the boat up the lake.

Though it was somewhat crowded, the boat ride was enjoyable. I don't blame the boat company for the screaming children. The captain narrated the cruise on the way out, but not the way back which means we didn't know what we were looking at once the boat turned around. The only seating are the folding chairs. Try to get a... More

This was a very pleasant cruise that helped us to appreciate Moosehead Lake. The standard cruise is 3 hours long and I wouldn't want to spend much more time than that. It's just that it is a long, slow boat ride. There are many things to do for children but if I had my choice, I would not bring children.... More
