What is there to do?

Get those captain hats on! It's Snow Pond Cruises time.  And yes, those hats will come in handy because kids can even DRIVE THE BOATS! How amazing is that!

Snow Pond Cruises will take you across Messalonskee Lake (which, cool fact, is the deepest in the chain of the seven lakes in the area!)  Snow Pond was also created by a gigantic continental collision millions of years ago, so it's a pretty awesome area to be learning about!

To get a taste of the cruises, check out the 1 hour "Getting To Know Messalonskee Cruise", where you might even spot a North American Bald Eagle in it's natural habitat! Get up to speed on the history of the Belgrade Lakes, and just relax!

The two hour cruise gives yu a bit more of an experience if you are really loving the idea of getting out into nature. You will travel over the deepest parts of the lake, visit "Rock Island", and even the New England Music Camp! It's a great insight into the challenges of the lakes inhabitants too.

Craving history? Then check out the 3 hour educational cruise! Get out into the farthest reaches of the lake, and experience first hand some of natures doings, and efforts to save the lake. You might even be lucky to spot one of the 12 nesting sites in the entire state for the Black Tern!
