“Worth the ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Something you really have to do when you are at Moosehead Lake. First visit the museum so you have some informative information on your cruise its is extremely interesting. Staff on board is the best including the cook. You really should eat on the ship the food is just wonderful and everyone is friendly and helpful. The ride is 3 hours and is worth it. Take a book, your own picinic, acholic beverages and binoculars are really helpful. You'll love the ride.

“Does not run in May”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

These cruises don't run until the end of June. Unless you hire a guide or take a float plane trip, there is no alternative to having your own boat in Greenvile if you want to actually see the lake. We stopped at a Chamber of Commerce booth in town, and they seemed puzzled that anyone would actually want to see more than just the very small part of the lake that is visible from the town landing....."hire a guide," was their suggestion - pricey and not something to do on the spur of the moment.

“Informative and Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

We wanted to go on a cruise of Moosehead Lake and decided taking the tour on the old logging ship Katahdin fit the bill. We went to the harbor well ahead of departure in order to visit the museum. This turned out to be a good choice, we secured convienient parking in their free parking lot and learned alot about the history of the lake and area by visiting the museum. The museum has videos running that document the logging history and displays that show the restoration of Katahdin. The museum sells the tickets for the cruise and has a small gift shop, too. Katahdin accomodates more than 200 passengers, there is plenty of seating, both inside and out, there is a small snack bar and an activity area for families and of course wash rooms. The cruise is 2 - 3 hours, depending on conditions. We took the crew up on their offer to tour the engine room and take the helm in the wheel house. The museum is free but the cruise is not. If you take the cruise they let you bring your own food and drinks, if you like.
