My wife and daughter gave me this cruise as part of my father's day present. It was very enjoyable and relaxing, Kevin leads a very informative cruise of Rangeley Lake, giving you the history of the lake and pointing out the wildlife, as well as the various structures along the cruise. Both, Doreen and he are very personable and you sense that he enjoys sharing his love and knowledge of the lake. I would definitely suggest that those visiting Rangeley Lake take the opportunity to take this or any other cruise which they are offering. I do not believe you will be disappointed.

My mother and I took the 4pm cruise last Friday. The weather was perfect the boat was beautiful and Kevin our Captain was very knowledgeable. He told us a lot about the area and even gave us recommendations of where we might see moose later that evening (and sure enough we saw one!). I would highly recommend the cruise it is a nice way to sit back, relax and learn about the area. Thank you Kevin and Doreen.

Kevin and Doreen will go above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating. I was able to pre-purchase a ticket for my Husband for the Sunset Cruise. He said it was very peaceful and relaxing, enjoyable, very laid back. The perfect ending to a day in the area. Yes loons and bald eagles are abundant. This is a BYOB cruise if one desires to bring a beverage such as a beer or wine. Definitely worth the money.

Kevin is a friendly Captain. With an hour and a half boat tour, he kept a good interactive pace of conversation with the guests while highlighting a solid overview of the region, its history, some trivia about the lake and Maine and a solid overview of the wildlife in the area. Our trip was comfortable and had age ranges from teenagers to seniors.

A fun, safe activity for all.
