The M/S Mount Washington offers guided tours and scenic cruises all along Lake Winnipesaukee. The flagship of the three-vessel fleet is the M/S Mount Washington,a 230-foot excursion ship that's roomy enough for banquets, receptions and dinner dance cruises! The M/V Doris E is a 68-footer that tours the smaller islands around Weirs Bay, and is a great choice for a quick exploration of the Lake. The 74-foot M/V Sophie C is also a U.S. Mailboat and the oldest floating postal vessel in the United States. She's still in operation, making deliveries to the islands. In addition to regularly scheduled excursions on these vessels, private charters are also available.
The 2.5-hour day cruise tour is $30 for adults, $15 for children, and $75 for the family rate (2 adults, 2 kids ages 5-12).
Day cruises operate between 10am and 2pm.
