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.

Nice ride and good way to see lake. It is a bit long and unless you sit in the right place hard to hear the Captain tell you what you are seeing. Food is very marginal that is available.

This 3.5 hr cruise departs daily at 12:30pm and costs $35/adult. There's a small cafe on board that offers basic lunch fare. On the journey out, the captain narrates over loudspeakers, which I found to be a bit annoying. Thankfully he didn't do this on...More

Once a month 5-hour cruise to Mt Kineo. Wow! Captain's occasional commentary gave background info. Displays showed details of hotel that used to be at Kineo. Food was great and easy to order. Even got the chance to steer the boat!

We came up from Texas to take the five-hour cruise. I was leary of the three-hour cruise given that a famous sitcom involving a skinny sailor, a skipper, millionaire and movie star and a few others had a not so great three-hour cruise. The five-hour...More
