Come experience pristine Squam Lake in a way that is personalized to your liking. Relax aboard a 23' Sea Ray Bow-Rider. Bask in the sun or stay shaded under the boat's canopy. Zoom fast around the lake or putter along. Anchor in quiet coves or off sandy beaches, swim or jump off the boat. Be daring and jump off infamous "Jumping Rock". View wildlife, tour historic Church Island and On Golden Pond movie sites. Stroll along a boarded swamp-walk or pick native blueberries in season. Cruise at sunset, or star gaze under a full moon. This is the perfect excursion for those who'd like to rent a boat for a day or a couple of hours, but are leery of navigating Squam's shallow and rocky waterways, and don't want to have to get a boater's license. Bathroom facilities are accessible on several public islands. Our boat operators are commercially licensed and insured and have 25 years of boating experience on Squam.

Five of us from Missouri spent a day with Cindy on Squam Lake -- the service she provided was outstanding. She was fun, knowledgeable, considerate and safe. We even added the special "house tour" that she offers -- this alone was worth the cost of the entire tour. We will remember this experience for the rest of our lives...it was... More

Truly a hidden gem in the Lakes Region. We went out for a tour in the middle of September (Cindy was accommodating to our schedule) and wanted to relax on the lake and see parts we hadn't seen before. I've been coming to Squam for many years, but Cindy's knowledge of the lake made our day extra special. We saw... More

We are 2 couples that took a 2 hour boat tour of Squam Lake with Experince Squam recently. We scheduled our tour on pretty short notice, but Captain Cindy accomodated our schedule happily. We took our tour on a beautiful, but chilly, morning and Cindy had lots of throw blankets to help keep us warm. She has a very pretty,... More

We took a 2 hour tour with Donna on a glorious October morning. She pointed out all the sights pertaining to On Golden Pond, plus the loons and the beautiful coves. Her local knowledge was incredible and the boat was comfortable and provided a smooth ride. Simply a wonderful time!

I have been going to Squam Lake for 8 years and one of the highlights I look forward to is cruising the lake with Cindy! She is so knowledgeable and accommodating. She tells us new things about, and takes us to different places in, the lake each year. Don't miss this opportunity to hear about Golden Pond and see the... More

This was my boyfriend and my first trip to Squam Lake. This was such a great way to tour the lake. Cindy is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Aside from the beautiful landscape we saw the loon family and bald eagles. We highly recommend this experience to others.
