MV Kearsarge Restaurant Ship

DMV Kearsarge Dinner BoatThe MV Kearsarge Restaurant Ship has been sailing the waters of Lake Sunapee for over 30 years and is a replica of the original MV Kearsarge Steamship. Each dinner cruise  last about 2 hours and is narrated by the Captain with facts and lore of Lake Sunapee. The MV Kearsarge features two decks of enclosed dining and an open-air walkway around the top deck. Sip on a refreshing cocktail as you head out of the harbor, learn about the history of the lake as you dine on a delicious buffet dinner and as you return (if nature cooperates) see the sun as it sets over Loon Island Lighthouse. Truly a magnificent experience. The dinner cruise leave at 6:30 pm before Labor Day and at 5:30 after Labor Day.
