Katahdin Cruises and the Moosehead Marine Museum

Scenic cruises on Moosehead Lake

Katahdin Cruises and the Moosehead Marine Museum invite you to experience history. Step aboard KATAHDIN for a leisurely cruise and enjoy the natural beauty and history of Moosehead Lake. Visitors are also welcome to browse the shoreside museum.

KATAHDIN was built in 1914 by the Bath Iron Works shipyard. Steamboats like KATAHDIN carried passengers, livestock, mail, supplies and equipment to large resorts, small hunting camps and villages around the lake.

Yet soon after KATAHDIN was launched, lake steamboating faded away. Cars and trucks began carrying more and more travelers and cargo on new roads around Moosehead. By the mid-1930s, only KATAHDIN remained of the lake's once-large steamboat fleet. KATAHDIN was converted to diesel power and used as a towboat to haul booms (rafts) of logs. She continued that job until 1975 and worked the nation's last log drive. She was then designated a National Historic Landmark. In 1976, the Moosehead Marine Museum was founded. It acquired the KATAHDIN as its star exhibit. In addition to the KATAHDIN, the Museum has an extensive collection of steamboat memorabilia and early photographs of the Moosehead area. The Marine Museum is dedicated to preserving the glorious days of steamboating and the heritage of the Moosehead Lake Region.

Katahdin Cruises and Moosehead Marine Museum

Discover the natural beauty and rich history of Maine’s Moosehead Lake from aboard the historic steamboat Katahdin. Katahdin Cruises are one of the areas most popular attractions, offering a variety of leisurely lake cruises as well as operating the Moosehead Marine Museum.

There are lots of fun things to do on and around Moosehead Lake, so many that it can be hard to choose. Still, if you’ve never been here before, one of the first boxes that most check off is a Moosehead Lake steamboat tour.

Once upon a time, steamboating was all the rage on Moosehead Lake. Many such ships plied these waters, carrying passengers, livestock, mail, supplies, and equipment to a variety of destinations around the lake. In fact, the Katahdin, often affectionately referred to as the “Kate,” was built in 1914 by Bath Iron Works for just such a life.

Timing is everything, however. The Katahdin only served as a passenger transport for a short time. By the mid-1930s the Great Depression and new roads around the lake had diminished the need for a steamboat fleet. Only the Katahdin remained and she had been converted to a diesel logging towboat. A job she stayed at until the nation’s last log drive in 1975.

After the Katahdin had dragged its last raft of logs, a local nonprofit group was organized to restore and preserve the historic boat. The Moosehead Marine Museum was founded with the National Historic Site, steamboat Katahdin, as its primary exhibit.

We received complementary tickets for the 3-hour Sugar Island cruise, so we invited a couple of friends to join us and headed out. As others have noted, they load the travelers in the order they bought their tickets. We reserved our places early, but my wife also has mobility issues, so they may have boarded us first due to that. We went slightly off season, so the boat wasn't crowded. We sat on the upper level in the front of the boat (the bow) which had a great viewpoint, though you are also exposed to sun and wind. With the boat not being close to full, our friends went to sheltered seating at one point, but we stayed topside most of the way. This was a seasonal sunny cool day and we had dressed knowing it would be cooler and windier out in the open water. It was a pleasant cruise, with historical tidbits about the buildings, mountains, past residents and so on that came into view. There comes a time where the narration ceases for quite a while, such as on the way back, so if you are cruising alone you might want to bring something to do when you want a break from looking at the landscape. We didn't eat from their kitchen so I can't speak to its value or quality. The rest rooms are clean and serviceable. There is also a museum on the shore where you can buy trinkets, hats, etc. Someday we want to take the 8-hour cruise, though I expect there will be even more "quiet time" on that trip!

What a marvelous way to spend time on Moosehead lake! We have been staying at a cabin on Moosehead yearly for 4 years now and this was our first venture on the Katahdin, taking the 3 hour Sugar Island tour. As another Yelper mentioned, the ship is boarded by calling out names (I do believe in order of purchase,) so no need to get there early to grab a good seat (not a bad seat in the house), but parking is limited so you may want to arrive earlier to secure a spot in the lot. Tickets can be purchased right there at the museum/gift shop ahead of time or online. They have a really good food and beverage selection ( a menu is provided when boarding) , or you can bring your own food (but not your own alcohol-that is for sale onboard). We brought our lunch but did purchase some sodas (long slow moving line). We sat on the bow for most of the journey there and back, but also walked around to check out the views from different vantage points. There are lots of photos and historical items scattered throughout. The way out is narrated with historical and other facts and landmarks. The way back is not narrated as they are doing tours of the engine room and the bridge. The captain and crew were friendly, jovial and knowledgeable. We loved the opportunity to steer the ship! Awesome experience. I would highly recommend this trip to not only get a different perspective of Maine's largest lake and it's surroundings, but to fully appreciate its enormity and beauty. Breathtaking. The ticket also includes a visit to the Maritime museum right at the dock. Fantastic all around!

Having never been to Moosehead Lake (and upon high recommendation), it was about time we made a jaunt to Greenville and see what's all the hullabaloo about! ;) We rented a cabin nearby for a few days, and decided to play tourist and book a cruise on the much lauded Katahdin ("Kate"). (We were there on its last week of operation for the year, so the 3-hour Sugar Island cruise was the only one available. They also have 5-hour and a 7-hour further distanced cruises during their operating season.) I was truly surprised at how many people also booked the cruise! The thing was packed!! Anyway, the cruise itself was very relaxing. For us, 3-hours was more than plenty of time to see the lake. (If there had been some plant-based food items, other than potato chips, the whole affair would've been far more enjoyable. We would've been starving on the 5- or 7- tours! LOL!! But, no doubt, there ain't too many vegans out in these climes!) The Old-Girl herself was a marvel to explore! What a beautiful job they've done to keep Kate looking spit-shine polished! Overall, it was a very good experience, and we were glad we able to see it before the season's end.... :D

Awesome cruise! This was a fantastic boat with an awesome crew. Very friendly staff and informative too. Surprisingly good food in the galley! Great views and plenty of fun activities for the little kids too. The only thing I would change is more comfortable chairs on the decks and more narration on the 2nd leg back. But definitely a must see if you're in the area.

So much fun! My family and I go every year and can't get enough of the beautiful ship and the majestic scenery of Moosehead! Highly Recommend!

We went out on the Katahdin ( also known as " The Kate" ) for our first time on there three hour cruise they call the Sugar Island Cruise. The cruise departs from Greenville Maine and sails north past Sugar Island where it turns around and heads back to Greenville. The boarding process is an Interesting one... a note to all future passengers: They board in the order the tickets were purchased. So if your late to buy your tickets you'll board last. It's important to note this because there are only so many preferred seats. Those that have the best vantage points.. so think ahead! We were the late ones.. and were called next to last so we had to sit on the lower floor in a corner but still enjoyed the view! One of the best things about the cruise is the views. The entire time on the boat you are rewarded with stunning mountain vistas! No matter where you are. The boat itself is very large and there is plenty of space to move around. There are three levels. The lower level being the engine room and mechanical facilities, the second being sitting area's both inside and out, bathrooms and a cafe that serves lunch , drinks and even beer. The third being the outside decks , wheelhouse and an inside area with some memorabilia of the ship's history. The staff is amazingly friendly and seem genuinely happy to help and share any knowledge they have on the boat itself and the surrounding area! You can visit the wheelhouse , meet the Captain and he will show you the controls, and share speed , operating info and even let you steer the ship if you like! The view from up there is worth seeing! We also did an engine tour and that was very interesting and I definitely recommend it. You need to wear ear protection ( they provide) A guide takes you to the lower level and you get to see the single Diesel engine that powers the ship! Very cool but very loud! You also get to see the massive generators and look out a porthole just above the water level! We did get a bit hungry on board and did share a grilled cheese sandwich.. it was really good , made with fresh bread and American cheese and came with chips. We had hot coffee and an iced tea both of which were great as well! So no need to worry if you get hungry or thirsty the've got you covered! The were two single person unisex bathrooms and both were extremely clean and well maintained. The boat itself was also very clean and free of clutter. I was impressed! If you visit Greenville Maine and the Moosehead Lake area I would definitely recommend adding a trip on the Katahdin to you list! It's one of the best ways to see and experience Moosehead Lake and the surrounding area! Enjoy!

Fun! Fun! Fun! And very informative- we cruised on a beautiful late summer day with smooth waters. If you're in need of good food and drink, the galley is open for service!

We were in the Greenville/Moosehead Lake area for part of our vacation to Maine. We found a cruise/tour of the lake on the steamship Katahdin. It was a great time learning about the ship as well as hearing the history of Moosehead Lake. The crew offered tours of the pilot house and engine room. Awesome experience to see how the ship was run. The galley sold a wide variety of food on board, including some homemade desserts. Great way to spend a day on the water.

Sugar island cruise. 3 hours. Beautiful day - wonderful boat. Our narrator is also the local high school history teacher - he was great. Lots of fun facts and interesting history of the " Kate" and Moosehead Lake. The crew was so friendly. Enjoyed chatting with them and the other travelers Definitely a must do !!

Photo of Tom L.

We enjoyed a breathtaking 3 hour tour on the Katahdin this past Friday. The weather surely helped, but this ship is managed by a fantastic team, who will be sure you get to witness some spectacular views with very informative information about the ship (past and present), famous people to the area, and the surrounding terrain. 3 hours is perfect to get you all of this, with decent lunch options too. Extremely clean and safe. Even with the waters being a bit rough, you never felt the ship sway. It can get quite windy, so hold onto those hats and get ready for a great ride on Moosehead Lake.

A Volga river cruise is more than a geographical voyage; it’s also a journey through Russia’s rich and captivating history. No other experience takes you so completely to another place and time. The Volga is Europe’s longest and largest river; it meanders through the stories of Ivan the Terrible and his rise to power, the two historic ‘Greats’ Peter and Catherine, and then on into today. It’s a unique opportunity to see modern Russia in the context of its intriguing history, ably assisted by friendly and professional academics and tour guides. A Volga Dream Russian river tour promises to leave you with an unforgettable afterglow of fond memories.

katahdin boat cruises

We love hearing from guests about their time in Russia and one comment often hear is how surprised people are by the Russian capital. We can’t say for certain what people expected but we do know that it’s always far removed from what they imagined! It’s been called a modern metropolis, a cosmopolitan city, an historic gem, an architectural treasure and a cultural powerhouse, among other descriptions. Majestic Moscow has always surprised our guests and left them with lasting and fond memories.

Russia’s famous Golden Ring is an archipelago of historic towns surrounding Moscow. Uglich is one of the oldest and was founded under Igor, the last Varangian prince. It once resisted the Mongol invasion and its ancient walls saw the grisly murder of young Dmitri, son of Ivan the Terrible. The impressive Church of St. Dmitri on the Blood, with its classic onion domes and blood red walls, is a fine example of classic Russian architecture. The tour ends with an enchanting choral concert.

This, the oldest city on the Volga River, and now a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasts a wealth of ancient orthodox treasures. The impressive Transfiguration of the Savior, adorned with murals depicting St. John’s apocalyptic visions can be seen in the Spassky Monastery. The Church of St. Elijah the Prophet is decorated with an awe-inspiring selection of rich frescoes. For a real taste of pre-revolutionary Russia, visitors are entertained by a costumed reception at the Governor’s House.

Close to the shores of White Lake once were the ‘tsar’s fishing grounds’. It lies in a place so serene that ancient monks chose to build no fewer than three holy sites here, including the Ferapontov Monastery. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, its chapels boast magnificent frescoes by Dionysius, one of Russia’s most renowned icon painters. The Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery was a refuge for many nobles during tumultuous times and later a fortress that successfully repelled invading armies.

The Karelia region is a vast and naturally beautiful wilderness that spreads all the way from St. Petersburg to the Arctic Circle. The glorious island village of Kizhi consists almost entirely of the traditionally styled wooden buildings of ‘Old Russia’. Among them is the famous Transfiguration Church built in 1714. Remarkably, and in testament to the craftsmen of the time, not a single nail was used in its construction! Kizhi is one of the favorite stops on the river cruise to St. Petersburg.

A typical rural hamlet brought to life by warm and welcoming villagers. Volga Dream guests are invited into local homes to enjoy classic Russian fare, tea with jam and ‘pirozhki’ (pies). Enthusiastic hosts share Russian traditions and the appeal of village life while proudly showing off their scrupulously kept homes and kitchen gardens. The tour continues with a brief bus ride to see a unique World War II memorial and then, for a real glimpse of Russian life, a visit to a local primary school.

Nizhny Novgorod

This was once a wealthy city thanks to its proximity to rich eastern trading routes. During the Soviet era, the city was closed to outsiders because of its military importance. It’s also where many political prisoners were sent to live out their days in exile. The 16th-century Kremlin ramparts offer spectacular views and the city is known for its elaborately decorated churches. For Volga Dream cruise guests, the highlight of the day is an evening folk concert performed by local children.

Sailing along the Volga river, the riverbank gradually ceases to be dominated by Orthodox churches. Instead, beautiful mosques appear as the river crosses into Tatarstan where the first stop is scenic Kazan, the region’s capital. Inside the white walls of the citadel, the famous Kul Sharif mosque and the old Cathedral of Peter and Paul stand side-by-side symbolizing the two faiths’ long and peaceful coexistence in the region. A concert of traditional Tatar music ends the Volga Dream tour in Kazan.

Passing the Zhigulevskie Mountains offers wonderful views from the sundeck before touring the city. One of the key attractions is the fascinating Space Museum, which offers a revealing glimpse of how the Soviet Union pursued its ambitious journey to the cosmos. The town is also noted for its beautiful esplanade, perfect for a relaxed stroll beside the Volga river. This in turn leads to the Samara State Art Museum. Founded in 1897, it is home to a collection of more than 16,000 works of art.

This city is best known for its close associations with cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin. The Russian hero who achieved worldwide fame as the first man in space lived and studied here. Saratov used to be home to a large German community, a heritage that can still be seen in the local architecture. The Volga Dream tour visits the Radishchev State Art Museum, the first picture gallery in Russia outside Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Originally called Tsaritsyn, the city was renamed Stalingrad from 1925 to 1961 in honor of the USSR’s leader. During World War II, the city’s residents put up a heroic defense, repelling an advancing Nazi invasion. The battle for Stalingrad has gone down in history as a pivotal moment in the bloody conflict on the eastern front. The most ferocious and deadly fighting took place on Mamayev Hill, where an imposing memorial now stands close to the excellent Battle of Stalingrad Panorama Museum.

Saint Petersburg

If Moscow surprises, then St Petersburg delights. Peter the Great founded the city to showcase Russia’s newfound enlightenment. He wanted to show the modern world a cultured and advanced society. In short, he built the city to impress and in that he succeeded splendidly! The striking buildings were designed by some of the finest architects Europe had to offer and even now, the ‘Venice of the North’ never fails to enchant with its spectacular buildings and impressive canal network. It is a city of true grandeur.

Cocktails with the Captain

Commanding any ship is a complex role that calls for a long list of skills. Captains know their vessels inside out as well as well as the routes they sail and when things don’t go to plan, they have to make instant decisions. Above all though, the most important part of the job, underpinning everything they do, is to keep the ship and everyone aboard safe. The Captain’s cocktail party is a great and a wonderful opportunity for passengers and crew to get acquainted as the gets underway.

Matryoshka doll painting

There is nothing more typically Russian than a Matryoshka. It embodies the fact that there’s always something deeper to be found in every aspect of Russian life. Learning the traditional designs and techniques used to decorate these iconic dolls offers a pleasant diversion and some cathartic creativity!

Superb Service & Dining

Our restaurant serves the highest standard of international cuisine, freshly made by our Cordon Bleu Chef. Choose either a sumptuous buffet or set menu for lunch while dinner is always four or five courses with full service. High praise for the exquisite quality of meals is yet another constantly recurring feature in feedback from our guests.

Meet the Professor

From the Mongol hordes to Soviet times, Russia’s history is, like all of Europe’s, a complex web of political intrigue, war and peace, trade and treaties, as well as heroes and villains. Academics devote whole lifetimes to studying Russia’s long past and one of them presents a series of lectures shedding light on everything from Gorbachev to Chekhov, Khrushchev to Ivan the Terrible and of course, contemporary Russia. Our Professor is on board throughout the river cruise for informal conversation.

Beginner’s Russian

The Russian language can be rather beautiful and poetic and we know that many seasoned travelers enjoy trying their hand at different languages. Our onboard teachers provide an introduction to the riches of Russian, so guests can try out a few useful words and phrases on real Russians during the exciting river tours from Moscow to St. Petersburg or from Moscow to Volgograd!

Russian tea tasting

The drink we tend to associate with Russia is vodka, but tea, in fact, is the much more universal beverage of choice throughout the country. Guests will get acquainted with the Russian tea etiquette, a fundamental component of the country's social culture, and enjoy the traditional tea ceremony while cruising from St. Petersburg to Moscow or taking a Grand Volga river tour.

Russian Dinner & Vodka Tasting

All our dining is international but for Russian Dining night, the Chef includes a selection of traditional Russian dishes: Chicken Kiev, Kulebyaka and no Russian table is complete without Borsch. To add to the ‘Taste of Russia’ optional Russian dress, or at least a touch of Russian style, is provided along with enthusiastic help from our staff!

Russian Cooking Class

A plate of pelmeni might not look like much to the untrained eye, but it forms the heart of Russian cuisine and culture. Basically, it's a type of dumpling: small portions of meat and onion wrapped in a thin sheet of unleavened dough and boiled, a little like ravioli. Guests can join a Russian cooking class onboard the MS Volga Dream to learn how to cook this delicious Russian dish.

Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov Piano Recital

Some of the greatest classical music ever written comes from Russia. It’s hard to imagine a more fitting stage for a virtuoso solo recital by our resident concert pianist than the mighty Volga or a better backdrop than the heart of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov’s own serene homeland.

Lifeboat malfunction keeps Maine Maritime training cruise close to home

katahdin boat cruises

An equipment malfunction has delayed the departure of Maine Maritime Academy’s training vessel from Penobscot Bay.

The school’s 500-foot long training ship, State of Maine, takes an annual overseas training cruise  so students can get hands-on experience in operating a large vessel. This year, the 74-day cruise was expected to take 202 students, along with 45 staff and crew, to ports of call in Florida, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Spain, Portugal, Canada, and Portland before returning to Castine.

But, so far, the ship is still within sight of shore, though the ship did motor out of Castine’s harbor as scheduled on May 8. The reason? A small crane used to lower and raise one of the ship’s four lifeboats broke during U.S. Coast Guard testing and inspections later that same day, as the ship was anchored off the northern tip of Islesboro, according to an official blog  midshipmen are keeping on the cruise.

Since then the ship has been anchoring off Searsport while waiting for a replacement part for the lifeboat to be delivered. Once the repair is made and the Coast Guard gives the okay, the ship will depart Maine for points further south and east.

“The part is currently en route to Castine (direct from Norway!) and the TSSOM will be returning to the Castine dock this afternoon for the next few days while the repair is completed,” school officials posted Monday on Facebook .

The delay in leaving Penobscot Bay has forced the school to adjust the cruise itinerary, however. The planned visit to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean has been canceled, but the ship may instead make a stop in New York City, according to the cruise blog.

The time spent in the bay, rather than cruising the open seas, has not been wasted, school officials said. Students have received at-sea training in maintenance and operations while cruising around the bay.

“From repairs, to watches, to plotting courses the students have remained busy and in good spirits,” they wrote on Facebook.

How the delay is expected to affect the cruise overall was not clear on Monday. An MMA spokesperson couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

The 2024 training cruise is expected to be the final one for the school’s current training ship, a former Navy oceanographic research vessel that has served as MMA’s training ship since 1997. School officials have said they hope their new training vessel, a $320 million ship  under construction in Philadelphia, will be delivered to Castine by spring of 2025.

Cruising the Moskva River: A short guide to boat trips in Russia’s capital

katahdin boat cruises

There’s hardly a better way to absorb Moscow’s atmosphere than on a ship sailing up and down the Moskva River. While complicated ticketing, loud music and chilling winds might dampen the anticipated fun, this checklist will help you to enjoy the scenic views and not fall into common tourist traps.

How to find the right boat?

There are plenty of boats and selecting the right one might be challenging. The size of the boat should be your main criteria.

Plenty of small boats cruise the Moskva River, and the most vivid one is this yellow Lay’s-branded boat. Everyone who has ever visited Moscow probably has seen it.

katahdin boat cruises

This option might leave a passenger disembarking partially deaf as the merciless Russian pop music blasts onboard. A free spirit, however, will find partying on such a vessel to be an unforgettable and authentic experience that’s almost a metaphor for life in modern Russia: too loud, and sometimes too welcoming. Tickets start at $13 (800 rubles) per person.

Bigger boats offer smoother sailing and tend to attract foreign visitors because of their distinct Soviet aura. Indeed, many of the older vessels must have seen better days. They are still afloat, however, and getting aboard is a unique ‘cultural’ experience. Sometimes the crew might offer lunch or dinner to passengers, but this option must be purchased with the ticket. Here is one such  option  offering dinner for $24 (1,490 rubles).

katahdin boat cruises

If you want to travel in style, consider Flotilla Radisson. These large, modern vessels are quite posh, with a cozy restaurant and an attentive crew at your service. Even though the selection of wines and food is modest, these vessels are still much better than other boats.

katahdin boat cruises

Surprisingly, the luxurious boats are priced rather modestly, and a single ticket goes for $17-$32 (1,100-2,000 rubles); also expect a reasonable restaurant bill on top.

How to buy tickets?

Women holding photos of ships promise huge discounts to “the young and beautiful,” and give personal invitations for river tours. They sound and look nice, but there’s a small catch: their ticket prices are usually more than those purchased online.

“We bought tickets from street hawkers for 900 rubles each, only to later discover that the other passengers bought their tickets twice as cheap!”  wrote  (in Russian) a disappointed Rostislav on a travel company website.

Nevertheless, buying from street hawkers has one considerable advantage: they personally escort you to the vessel so that you don’t waste time looking for the boat on your own.

katahdin boat cruises

Prices start at $13 (800 rubles) for one ride, and for an additional $6.5 (400 rubles) you can purchase an unlimited number of tours on the same boat on any given day.

Flotilla Radisson has official ticket offices at Gorky Park and Hotel Ukraine, but they’re often sold out.

Buying online is an option that might save some cash. Websites such as  this   offer considerable discounts for tickets sold online. On a busy Friday night an online purchase might be the only chance to get a ticket on a Flotilla Radisson boat.

This  website  (in Russian) offers multiple options for short river cruises in and around the city center, including offbeat options such as ‘disco cruises’ and ‘children cruises.’ This other  website  sells tickets online, but doesn’t have an English version. The interface is intuitive, however.

Buying tickets online has its bad points, however. The most common is confusing which pier you should go to and missing your river tour.

katahdin boat cruises

“I once bought tickets online to save with the discount that the website offered,” said Igor Shvarkin from Moscow. “The pier was initially marked as ‘Park Kultury,’ but when I arrived it wasn’t easy to find my boat because there were too many there. My guests had to walk a considerable distance before I finally found the vessel that accepted my tickets purchased online,” said the man.

There are two main boarding piers in the city center:  Hotel Ukraine  and  Park Kultury . Always take note of your particular berth when buying tickets online.

Where to sit onboard?

Even on a warm day, the headwind might be chilly for passengers on deck. Make sure you have warm clothes, or that the crew has blankets ready upon request.

The glass-encased hold makes the tour much more comfortable, but not at the expense of having an enjoyable experience.

katahdin boat cruises

Getting off the boat requires preparation as well. Ideally, you should be able to disembark on any pier along the way. In reality, passengers never know where the boat’s captain will make the next stop. Street hawkers often tell passengers in advance where they’ll be able to disembark. If you buy tickets online then you’ll have to research it yourself.

There’s a chance that the captain won’t make any stops at all and will take you back to where the tour began, which is the case with Flotilla Radisson. The safest option is to automatically expect that you’ll return to the pier where you started.
