Travelled to Moosehead Lake and took a 3 hour tour. It was $35.00. The Captain pointed out several historical areas of the lake and shared some other good information. The steam ship and very clean. The staff onboard are very friendly. Plenty or room to move around., worth the money

Boat ride was very nice. They served food on the boat or you could bring food onto the boat with you. Views were beautiful, narration was a little dry though.

How can you not have fun on a boat with friends in northern Maine on the 4th of July? Add a lovely bottle of red wine that we were allowed to bring aboard and a fabulous fireworks show and a good time was had by all!

We are traveling with a small dog and he was not allowed to go on a cruise with us. Since we did not have a safe place to leave him, we opted out. I totally understand. Maybe an option would be to offer short term kenneling? ( I looked for a kennel but could not locate one in the immediate... More

Nice 3 hour ride to Sugar Island. The narrator gave info on many places along the route. They also offer several other different trips but it depends on the day. They do sell food on board but I would suggest packing a lunch because it's pricy. Also bring a jacket even if you think it's warm out because the lake... More

Moosehead Lake is huge. Touring by boat lets you see so much. Fun ride and we had Fall colors. A special treat.

Drove there in hopes to see a moose. Found this museum. It was closed but the owner was there and let us go in and look around the museum. It was very interesting. Cool pics from the past too. Will return in the summer for the boat tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed the SS Katahdin tour around parts of Moosehead Lake. Parts because to tour the entire lake would take 8 hours! The lake is Maine's largest at 40 miles long and 20 miles wide. Our 3 hour trip was narrated by the captain who not only did a great job navigating and story telling but also let anyone... More

There is nothing like seeing an area from the water to give you a different perspective. This is the event for you when you come to the Greenville area. If you have some flexibility in your days here, try to plan your Katahdin excursion for a good weather day as it is lovely to sit on the top deck and... More

We took the once a year eight hour tour with breakfast and lunch served along with live music. The Captain tells the local history and stories as we pass near local landmarks. Pulled into a cove near Mt. Kineo and took in the sites as a Bald Eagle circled above. The weather was a bit cold and blankets were ready... More
