Make sure you pick a sunny day and dress warmly, even in summer as the water is cool and the breezes brisk. The views are great and Moosehead Lake is a special body of water.

The Katahdin is a real treat for visitors to Greenville. The Sunday brunch was very generous and tasty. Loved seeing the sights from the boat. The captain provides a narrative as the boat travels along the lake. Would highly recommend.
