Katahdin Cruises & Moosehead Marine Museum

"A lake is the earth's eye."  - Henry David Thoreau

Happy 100th Birthday Kate!  1914 - 2014


Katahdin Cruises and the Moosehead Marine Museum invite you to experience history. Step aboard KATAHDIN for a leisurely cruise to enjoy the natural beauty and history of Moosehead Lake. Our abundant wilderness is apparent. All are also welcome to browse the shoreside museum from 10am - 4pm, Monday thru Saturday.

The three hour cruise travels up the lake 12 miles to the widest part of the lake just north of Deer and Sugar Islands, the largest islands on the lake. On a clear day the mountain views are incredible with Mount Katahdin (Maine's largest) in the distance.

The four and one-half hour Mount Kineo cruise travels approximately 20 miles up the lake. At the northern terminus of the trip, KATAHDIN passes directly beneath the 800 foot cliffs of Mount Kineo. Peregrine falcons are frequently sighted soaring above the mountain. This area is also the deepest section of the lake at 254 feet.


The Katahdin is featured in the May 2014 Maine Archives and Museums Newsletter. To read the article:  http://www.mainemuseums.org/Resources/Documents/Newsletters/May%202014.pdf
