Our stay in Greenville was only for two nights before heading back on the five hour trip home to Rhode Island. The weather called for thunderstorms and rain on the morning we purchased our cruise tickets. Thankfully, we had less than five minutes of rain, then sunny skies, a wonderful trip with a knowledgable captain of the area. This cruise... More

Great time. We took a 3 hour trip. Very relaxing, great crew. Food for purchase. The scenery is beautiful. The crew will answer all questions. It was just a great time on board.

We went on a sunset cruise for a wedding reception. The staff on the boat was not extremely friendly, but they got us there and back safely. The views on Moosehead Lake were amazing!

The Katahdin Cruse was a relaxing, informative cruise on Maine's largest lake- beautiful scenery and knowledgeable guide detailing the history of the Katahdin and Moosehead Lake.

Absolutely take a cruise on "The Kate"! Great commentary, great boat, great lake! The museum is small but gives a wonderful sense of this region's history. Locals staff the boat and do a very thorough and thoughtful job taking care of their passengers! Highly recommended!!

Great commentary on a gentle ride down the lake. Sit up top at the back toward the housing for great views and less wind. Food on board. Go to the captain's place to get an even better view both of the lake but how everything is done.

I have done this cruise a couple of times. The captains are well versed on the history and geography of Moosehead so you get off having learned a few things. Sunscreen is a must if you intend to sit on the deck. And your experience is not complete unless you spend some time in the museum.

Despite some negative reviews I tried this one. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the ride was quite educational. The Captain gave a great tour and I had a perfectly good time. Highly recommend...

Our son had his wedding reception on the Katahdin and it was perfect. The lake was calm and the views unbelievable! The crew was great. Although the cruise was 3 hours it just seemed like we could have cruised longer. We were on the lake when the sunset and it was a sight to see. When in Greenville this is... More
