The 3 hour boat cruise was very enjoyable. The Captain gave a very informative running narrative of the lake, it's history, and what you were cruising by off in the distance throughout the 3 hours. A small galley kitchen offered food and non-alcoholic beverages.

We took a very nice three hour cruise around Moosehead Lake. We were impressed with the information and facts we learned. The captain was speaking and then other tour guides came around to answer any questions. Worth the time and money.

We opted for the longer cruise to Mt Kineo which is only offered every two weeks. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. Highly recommended.
