This summer the New Hampshire Boat Museum of Wolfeboro is offering rides on Lake Winnipesaukee aboard its vintage HackerCraft, Millie B. Rides continue through Columbus Day weekend.

Offered is a 45-minute narrated tour along the eastern shore of the lake. Passengers will see spectacular scenery while learning about the history, geology, and ecology of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Reservations are encouraged and may be made by calling the New Hampshire Boat Museum at (603) 569-4554. During the shoulder seasons, the boat runs on the weekends only. During July and August the boat runs daily. All tours are weather dependent. The exact schedule can be viewed at the museum’s website.

Two trained New Hampshire Boat Museum staff are always on duty, a dock attendant who sells tickets and helps visitors on and off the boat and the boat’s captain. Captains have their commercial license and each one gives a unique and informative tour.

As an added bonus, all those who take a Millie B boat ride receive a free admission pass to tour the New Hampshire Boat Museum.

Tickets:

$22 for adults

$20 for museum members, seniors, teens and active military

$10 for children, with children under 5 free of charge

$60 family rate (includes 2 adults with 2 children)

For those wanting a more personalized experience, charters are available. The Millie B provides unique memories to help you celebrate major events such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. Many brides choose to arrive in style at their lake wedding on the Millie B. And, of course the Millie B is also the perfect setting for unforgettable wedding photos.
