Steamship Cruises

The Moosehead Marine Museum in downtown Greenville features a masterpiece called the Katahdin---affectionately known as "The Kate". This steamship was built in 1914 by Bath Iron Works and was one of five ships that provided transportation services on Moosehead Lake. It traveled from Greenville all the way to the north end of the lake to Seboomook and Northeast Carry, providing services for the logging industry, and transporting visitors to sporting camps and the grand hotels of that era.

The Kate has since been restored, and delights visitors with daily steamship tours of Moosehead Lake. From Memorial Day through the fall foliage season, a variety of tours are offered. From 3 hour cruises to Sugar Island to 5 hour cruises to Mount Kineo you can choose the best option for you. The views of Moose Mountain, Spencer Mountains, and Mount Katahdin are quite breathtaking when seen from the upper deck of the ship. Special cruises are also available by reservation.
