Steamship Cruises Moosehead Lake: A Taste Of Moosehead Lakes History

Spring, Summer, Fall: Steamship cruises are one of the oldest water transportations on Moosehead Lake today. The steamship “Katahdin” also know as “The Kate”, was built in 1914 by Bath Iron Works. This ship is one of the five ships that provided transportation services traveling from Greenville to the northern part of the lake. Today, the Katahdin provides many of the same services as it did back then, such as shuttling tourist to and from their resorts, transporting people to and from Sugar Island and Mount Kineo, and helping to carry cargo for a local logging company. With three levels, “The Kate” offers spectacular views from the top deck of the mountains, islands, breathtaking sunsets, and of the clear blue water of Moosehead Lake.
