Overview
More
Come experience pristine Squam Lake in a way that is personalized to your liking. Relax aboard a 23' Sea Ray Bow-Rider. Bask in the sun or stay shaded under the boat's canopy. Zoom fast around the lake or putter along. Anchor in quiet coves or off sandy beaches, swim or jump off the boat. Be daring and jump off infamous "Jumping Rock". View wildlife, tour historic Church Island and On Golden Pond movie sites. Stroll along a boarded swamp-walk or pick native blueberries in season. Cruise at sunset, or star gaze under a full moon. This is the perfect excursion for those who'd like to rent a boat for a day or a couple of hours, but are leery of navigating Squam's shallow and rocky waterways, and don't want to have to get a boater's license. Bathroom facilities are accessible on several public islands. Our boat operators are commercially licensed and insured and have 25 years of boating experience on Squam.
