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

We're looking around the area for various reasons. Mostly Moose... It was my Birthday and we thought we'd do this short cruise. It was fantastic, food was great, and the scenery is beyond description on Moosehead Lake. Maine is just flat out beautiful! The Captain and crew were more than knowledgable and friendly. He had many kids steering the boat... More

We took the 3 hour cruise on the Katahdin on Moosehead Lake. It was lots of fun and each of us even got a turn steering the big boat. We also asked for and got a tour of the engine room, which was very fascinating for my husband. The crew was very knowledgeable about the area and answered lots of... More

Cruising on the Katahdin on Moosehead Lake gives you a whole new perspective of the immensity and history of this great lake. Family and friends went during "Fly In Weekend" in early September when float plaes come from all over to show off their planes and test their skills. Viewing all the activitity from the Katahdin added to the experience.
