Come take a ride on the Kate! This beautiful piece of floating history is over 100 years old, and still as spry as when her hull was constructed at Bath Iron Works in 1914! Smoothly steam over the waters of Moosehead Lake as you listen to the Captain narrate the scenery around you. Grab some lunch at the galley on board, and enjoy your food as the lake quietly slips by.
The Katahdin was once a working steamboat, she used to carry livestock, equipment, supplies, and passengers, as well as tow log booms in her later years. She was retired in 1975 and sold to the Moosehead Marine Museum which spent years devoted to sprucing her back up to her former glory. Located right in the center of town, the Kate sails June through October and is one of the major highlights of the Region. For more information, stop into the Moosehead Marine Museum or call 207-695-2716.
One of the best ways to get out on the water and experience the vastness of the lake, a ride on the Kate is a Moosehead Lake must do. The Katahdin also hosts special function cruises and events. Regular cruises and special events tickets are available in advanced on their website. Tickets for a ride on the Katahdin can be purchased online or by stopping at the ticket office on the day of the cruise. The ticket office is located in the museum.
