A nice relaxing cruise around the lake. A shop with refreshments on board. Large boat and lots of indoor seating. We disembarked at Wolfeboro for lunch which was a cute little place

Picked up this cruise in Weirs Beach. Parking lot adjacent the church - meter parking on street near pier is not long enough for the cruise. Cruise is narrated and was a great way to see the fall colours around the lake.

We visited during the fall and enjoyed the autumn foliage... but this cruise would be awesome anytime of year! The narration and entire experience was relaxing and beautiful! Highly recommend.

Hi, what would you like to know about this attraction? Are there any cruises between April 29 and May 4?

Response from cruizin603 | Property representative |
No, we are sorry to disappoint but our season runs from May 20 through October 22, 2017. The exception is Mother's Day, May 14, when we offer two Mother's Day Brunch cruises.
Can you bring your own food? We have food allergies in our party.
