Departing from Sunapee Harbor these narrated boat tours on Lake Sunapee are a great way to spend an afternoon. Relax in your deck chair and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Sunapee while your Captain narrates the history, landmarks and lore of this crystal clear mountain lake. Known as the waters of the flying goose, the MV Mt. Sunapee has been sailing these waters for decades. Featuring an open-air top deck and a covered lower deck so whatever the weather you can cruises this approximately 10-mile long lake in comfort. See the magnificent homes that have sprung up around the lake. Pass by our three lighthouses that were once used to help the steam boats navigate these waters and are still in operation today guiding the pleasure boats at night. In the distance you can see Mt. Kearsarge and the ski trails on Mt. Sunapee.

Our two sons and their families took wife and I for an evening dinner cruise on the MV Kearrsagae on Lake Sunapee. Buffet and 2 hour cruise of Lake Sunapee was top shelf. Absolutely a wonderful way to celebrate our very special occasion.

Hi, Elaine. What would you like to know about this attraction? I am wondering what the dress code on the restaurant boat is like.

Response from Jan-Bobtoo |
It is casual. Also, bring a sweater or light jacket. The sun will have set by the end of the cruise, this time of year and it can get cool.
What is the dress code?

They recommend closed shoes, as it is a rocking boat. Jeans, shorts, skirts, whatever is okay. Bring a jacket for after sunset.
