It was a sunny day at and my family and I opted for the 1 hour tour on the Sophie. It's was the perfect length of time to be in the sun on a boat. The captain conveyed a lot of information about the history of the Lake that we did not know.

We felt like we were on the lake with a fantastic piece of history! The ship will hold over 1000 people! The staff was very helpful and nice. It would be a wonderful place for a wedding/anniversary party or any private celebration, too. The lake is so beautiful. It is family-friendly and old-peeps-like-us friendly, too!! Enjoy the ride!

The Mt Washington is an excellent way to see Lake Winnipesaukee. It used to go all around the Lake but now only goes between Weirs Beach and Wolfeboro most days and Weirs and Alton the other two days. The view is great. The food is lacking and needs improvement.

The ship is fine, just don't go there to eat, it is terrible. We had a nice kale salad, nothing else in it. greasy meatloaf and some kind of fish. The deserts were left over from the day before Sunday brunch, I know I was on that too. We went to see about the season pass going at night. forget... More

Visited with a group of friends for the dinner cruise with the following observations: food is marginal at best. Limited selection, potatoes over done, roast beef over done, vegetables over done....but the salad was fresh. Drink prices are fair with a reasonable beer selection, but lower shelf alcohol. Staff was more focused on their duties and not the guests.....cut people... More

Ok so I have been on the day cruise before which was a great way to see the lake and when we went years ago they pointed out sights and gave history. Nice. My wife surprised me with a dinner cruise last night for my birthday and mentioned that in addition to the cruise the buffet looked good and showed... More

My husband and I decided to spend the weekend in NH for our anniversary, and we chose to come here on Saturday Night. Boarding started around 6:15pm after getting bags checked (don't try to smuggle booze, they'll take it.) Food is served right away. Food is ok, average at best. My favorite was the salad and the roasted potatoes. The... More

We took this lake tour during our first day at the lake - great way to get acclimated. It just so happened that miss New Hampshire and her full court were on board that afternoon too. On deck 1 was a dj playing music - with a dance floor !
