Departing from Sunapee Harbor these narrated boat tours on Lake Sunapee are a great way to spend an afternoon. Relax in your deck chair and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Sunapee while your Captain narrates the history, landmarks and lore of this crystal clear mountain lake. Known as the waters of the flying goose, the MV Mt. Sunapee has been sailing these waters for decades.

Featuring an open-air top deck and a covered lower deck so whatever the weather you can cruises this approximately 10-mile long lake in comfort. See the magnificent homes that have sprung up around the lake. Pass by our three lighthouses that were once used to help the steam boats navigate these waters and are still in operation today guiding the pleasure boats at night. In the distance you can see Mt. Kearsarge and the ski trails on Mt. Sunapee.

Took the family on an evening cruise on Lake Sunapee. The people on the MV Kearsarge were very professional and added to the experience.

Enjoyed this experience as a relaxing way to see the lake. Booked on line. The staff were very nice and refreshments were available. The captain gave us information on the history of the lake and the dwellings around it. On occasions allowed us to sit and enjoy the cruise. I had a very patient teen with me and we spent... More

An enjoyable view of Lake Sunapee and its shoreline of beautiful homes, but captain's lecture did not talk about the history of this area. Inhabited by native Americans, settled before the Revolutionary War, stablishment of railroads to bring people to the area and the development of the area as a popular summer community. Also ecological info should be included. When... More

The meal may not be '5 Star' - more like a 3 to 4 - but it was good, and the staff was definitely a 5. We've vacationed for a few years at Sunapee, and it was fun for us (3 adults and 3 teenagers) to see it at a slower pace (vs. tubing!) and hear some of the history... More

A very relaxing day on a beautiful lake. The Captain kept us very well informed of items of interest around the lake without being obnoxious and self important as so many tour guides can become. This scenic day time cruise was most enjoyable complementing a beautiful day.

We took the Sunapee dinner cruise last Friday night. It was a wonderful night for a cruise and we had a fantastic time! The captain greeted us and took us individually to our table when we boarded, which was a great touch. She was extremely informative and knew so much about the lake. The food was absolutely delicious. Don't be... More

Took the scenic day time cruise which was very reasonably priced at $20. The cruise covers a lot of ground on the lake and shows you the many beautiful homes and islands that the lake has. I took the cruise with my girlfriend because we are lighthouse fanatics. It didn't get super close to them but we definitely saw all... More
