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

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.
