We were disappointed to find that the boat was under repair for a major engine problem. Not sure if it will be back in action before end of summer. Call ahead. No other big boat options around.

We regret that you were disappointed and we hope that you will return when the Katahdin is cruising again. We anticipate that repairs will be complete by Labor Day.

Was cool gloomy day. Boat ride experience as a whole was disappointing. Nothing exciting about the narrative. Galley food just ok.
