2014, 2015 and 2017 BEST BOAT CRUISE in the entire State of Maine...as voted by Down East Magazine Readers! Rated # 1 of 28 "Things To Do" in Rangeley for 5 straight years! Offering Scenic Lake Cruises, Private Charters, Sunset & Foliage Cruises, Mothership Kayak Excursions and Guided Kayak Trips on Maine's Rangeley Lakes. Two unique vessels, our 1947 restored wood launch the Oquossoc Lady and our 30' pontoon boat, the Gray Ghost. Now in our 8th season, we have become the premier summer activity in Rangeley. The Oquossoc Lady returns you to the time when small private steamers sailed the lake. At 28', she seats 10 passengers. The Gray Ghost, at 30', is the largest commercial vessel in the region and provides safe and comfortable transport to our remote guided paddling destinations on the Rangeley Lakes. All cruises and paddle trips include a historic overview of the Region as well as wildilfe viewing. Loons, Bald Eagles, Ospreys, maybe even a Moose. Owner is a licensed Registered Maine Guide and Boat Captain as well as a Director with the Rangeley Historical Society.
