MV MT Sunapee at town dock in Sunapee HarborDeparting 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 cruise this picturesque lake in comfort. See the magnificent homes that have sprung up around the lake. Pass by the three historic, and still operating, lighthouses that guided the pleasure boats of yesterday and today.
